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...

So just in case... As mentioned before, ask questions, a lot of helpfull men on here are willing to answer them. Let...

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...

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hello I'm back the restoration goes on, slowly but surely. A box arrived last friday so I did a bit of construction during few spare hours in the weekend. The box contained indicator stems, a grab rail, the seat lock mechanism, a cockpit idiot light cover and some more bits. DSCN3625.JPG As you can ...

Re: New Here... RubberChicken

Hi Paul welcome to the club! A Z1000ST is a very good choise. It was the first bike I bought new from a shop back in 1983. Rides like a train on rails, an enormous amount of torcque, even at low revs, and very reliable. I love them so much that I have 5 of them. Show us some pics, we're all very cur...
