Re: A4 air box

Hi guys it doesn't end by only changing the batterybox...you'll need a metal strap to secure the battery, two little pieces to hold the side panel(the top rear but of the Z900A4 side panel sits in the plastic toolbox and the bottom one in a metal bracket)) a Z1000A right hand side panel and maybe ot...

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hi Wrigers it's one of the few weak points of the "bulletproof" engine... The problem seems to be that only that pin limits, prevents, the movement from left to right of the cranckshaft. The problem starts with the pin becoming loose. When the pin isn't corrected and tightened the pressure...

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hi Wrigers bad news, very bad news...but it can be solved. The cracks can be welded but it will have to be done by a real craftsman who has the correct equipment and a lot of skills. I've been reading about it on the German forum where the same thing happened and it could be repaired. They wrote tha...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Avon
the black/white wire gives the minus to the horn. The switch block itself needs to be mounted on the handlebar in order to be connected with the minus of the battery. Did you try the horn button with the switch block mounted or dismounted?
Bike electricity...strange thing...

Re: Z1000A2 - engine out...well trying

Hi Graham now you're so far it's a piece of cake, the engine should come out without any problems. You can lift it out if you want but mind your back, it's still a heavy lump of metal! Try to make it as light as you can, Remove the starter motor, and everything else that you can. Go for it! GrtZ Phi...

Re: 28mm Z1R Carbs

Hi Scott if you don't find Z1R carbs, you could use the carbs of a Z1000ST, they're practically the same, you only have to blank the hole on the third carb where the vacuum pipe for the fuel tap comes . They're easier to find and mostly cheaper. My Z1R has ST carbs on and it performs very good! Good...

Re: Z1000A2 - engine out...well trying

Hi Graham taking the frame off to get the engine out is the best way to do it if you want to save your back! Make sure all the engine retaining bolts are removed ( long front bolt, two short lower bolts left and right, lower rear bolt and upper rear bolt) and that the triangular plates are removed f...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Avon
if mounted and adjusted correctly the brake pedal doesn't touch the foot rest, take a closer look at it, you can adjust it !
Good luck

Re: New member

Hi Avon ST wellcome to the ST owners club!! Another ST owner-lover-enthousiast. Great! The ST is an underestimated Z1000! They deserve much better! You did a great job so far, your bike looks very nice, keep up the good work. I own five Z1000ST's, two of them have registration and insurance, 2 of th...

Re: Z1000st Project

Hi Simon
glad to hear that the bike is "home" ! You got it running, great! I think rebuilding the carbs is a very wise thing to do.
I'm looking forward for some pics.
