Re: Age date

Hi Mike
your Z1 was build in april 73. The frame and the engine seem to be matching according to the German forum. The other bikes with a frame number near yours have engines with numbers near your engine. Exeptions are allways possible so don't shoot the piano player!
Greetings from Belgium

Re: GPZ1000RX Project

Hi Bill
I hope you have a shop manual! Make sure both the engines are the same type before swapping parts. Mind the bearings of the cranckshaft!
Good luck with it

Re: Z1b caliper

Hi Wrigers you're thinking correctly. The calipers are the same, it's only the bracket that' different. Beside the caliper and the bracket you'll need other parts too. You certainly need a 2 disc front brake master cylinder in order to perform well. I have several parts you need but they all need to...

It's fairly easy: just put the paint with a small brush (n°0 or n°1) in the lettering on the casings, let it dry for a few minutes and take a...

Re: Last ride of the year

Hi Bill
the days are getting shorter, the temperature is dropping, bad weather on its way from the east.
I don't like to ride in the rain or when it's too cold.
Maybe it should have been: "Probably last ride of the year". :D

Re: Run out on the H2

Hi Bill
take it easy! You know their nickname: "widow maker" . Give the engine the time to run in and after a few hundred miles of calm riding you can enjoy her revving up and hear her scream of joy.

Re: My '72 Ribless Carbs

Hi guys I know I'm a bit crazy but not that much! :wink: For that amount of money I can buy a restorable bike. :smile Maybe one day I'll find a set of '72 ribless carbs for an acceptable price and mount these on my Z1. For the moment she runs OK with her ribbed '73 carbs. Anyway, thanks a lot for th...
