Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Avon don't let a little set back get you down, replace both the fork oil seals and put some passenger footrests on your bike, these are only minor problems, no big difficulties with huge amounts of costs and work. Go for it! You can fix it. During the time I was writing a reply, you allmost fixed...

Re: Carburettor Jets

Hi Wayne
why don't you try to find Z1000 A1 or A2 carbs? Fit those after a clean up and a refurbishment with standard jets and needles for a Z1000 A1 or A2. They look more or less the same and I don't think you'll have to worry about the mixture. Those should do the job I think.

Re: Z1000 mk2 Front mudguard

Hi Bruce

the Z1R D1 has an 18" front wheel (1978)
the Z1R D3 has an 19" front wheel (1980)
I'm not sure about the D2 (only approx 250 produced)(1979)
I hope it's clear.

Re: Z1000R Helmet & Seat Lock

Hi Mike just noticed that you allready got help from Mark! That's why there's a forum. We help eachother! The other lock might be more difficult but the basics are the same. The hardest part is to get the barrel out. Unscrew the back plate and find the retaining part to get the barrel out. Afterward...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi
the frame number is on the left hand side of the steering head, close to the "made in japan" stamp.
That's the reason why I don't like powder coating, it's too thick...
Good luck with the search.

Re: Z1000R Helmet & Seat Lock

Hi Mike can you put some pictures of those locks on the forum? Maybe I can tell you how to remove the barrels and change the inside of it to one key. I'm doing the same thing at the moment for a KZ1000P. The most difficult part of the job is to get the barrels out without rendering them unusable... ...

Re: clocks

Hi John
you did it!
Seems like a good bike to me! A rather complete bike with a big fuel tank, great. Thanks for the picture!
Take some pictures of the parts all over the garage, you'll be glad to have some memories of it for the future, believe me.
Good luck with the restoration!
