Re: 1.85 x 19" rim

Hi Ady it depends on what type of Kawasaki you have... a Z1, Z1A, Z1B should have a Takasago rim with the code 303 in it. A (K)Z900 A4-A5, Z1000A1, Z1000A2 should have a Takasago rim with the code 305 in it. The code denotes the angle of the spokes which in his turn depends of the diameter of the wh...

Re: Wanted- Z1 oil pressure switch

Hi PJONO
I think you should replace it. Buy a new one or a good used one. They're not all the same though. The Z1 has a screw to attach the electric wire, younger ones have a metal pin.
So if you want to keep it as "original" as possible find one with a screw.

Re: 1973 Z1-NOISE IN MOTOR

Hi PJONO don't use the old intake rubbers! Don't smear liquid gasket on them! Buy 4 new intake rubbers! These have a lip where they mount on the cylinderhead thus ensuring an air tight sealing. The old ones are hard and the lip doesn't seal anymore. When using the old ones your engine might suck in ...

Re: Wanted- Z1 oil pressure switch

Hi PJONO do you have an original early Z1 oil pressure switch mounted? If so, take a look to see if there's a little hole in the copper plate at the bottom of the switch. You can see the round copper plate when you turn the switch upside down. If not, drill a 1 mm hole in that plate. It was adviced ...

Re: Exhaust mounting brackets for Kawasaki z1000 A1

That's the easiest one to find! The left hand one was often kept because of the main stand . If taken off, the main stand would hit the swing arm and/or the drive chain and would be bouncing when riding the bike. The right hand one was often taken off when a 4 in 1 was mounted and got lost as time w...

Re: dual disk

Hi Derek
you can mount two KZ900 A4 or A5 7mm thick discs on the Z900A4 hub. The thick discs only increase the unsprung weight of the front wheel. But they fit as long as they have 4 holes for the disc bolts !

Re: Engine internals 1972-1980 kick start models

Hi Swirl I suppose you only want to keep the welded cranckshaft of your z900a4 with pistons and head? If so, you can easily switch them from one bike to the other. Just don't forget that the Z900A4 cranckshaft has 15 teeth on the central pignon and that the Z1000H cranckshaft has 16 teeth. Don't for...

Re: Erratic indicators

Hi Alan
as stated above: a bad connection of the electrical wires or a defect flasher unit.
You have to find it out by eliminating the possible causes.
Good luck
