Re: irregular Idle 73 Z1

If not, the engine could have extra air succed in. Did you cleaned and lubricated the automatic ignition advancer and have th...

Re: New Year, New Shiny Bits!

Hi Grog as far as the rear shocks are concerned, it all depends on what you're planning to do with your bike. If you want to ride it in a decent way, concerning speed limits etc, you can easily go on hagon shocks. If you want to adjust your shocks more often or refine the road behavioure of your bik...

Re: Carb adjustment query

Hi Kwackman you put a wire in the carb at the side where they go into the intake rubbers. Just take a look at the throttle valves,(slides) there's a small indentation. The wire has to sit in that indentation, trapped between the carb body and the slide. Hold your carbs with the outlet side downwards...

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hi Gonzo
no, I opened the clocks, cleaned them, gave them a respray and closed them again, as I allways do.
So, no new glass, only a cleansing of the old glass.

Re: Treeman

Hi Treeman welcome to the club! Nice pictures of your Z1000! A lot of work to do on it but a good base to start from. I noticed that the front mudguard is mounted incorrect, you have to turn it the other way round. I allso notice that you have Z1A or B carbs on it. They're 28 mm but difficult to bal...

Re: Gear shaft

Hi Tony I don't want to steal your dream but the gear shaft of an ST is not the same as the one of a MK2. They have different numbers and they look different! Other parts of the gear shifting mechanism are different too! Gear shaft ST: 13161-1011 Gear shaft MK2: 13161-029 Take a look at the parts on...
