Re: ST recommission

Back end done, front end checked, wheels still out of line. I'm going to have to get the headlight and tank off and send a cross beam laser down the bike. In the meantime. Does anyone know what this is supposed to look like? IMG_2626.JPG IMG_2625.JPG The metal strip under the 'half full' line that i...

Re: ST recommission

Cheers, no grease then. I'll get that back in tomorrow and re check the front end. Everything seemed to go together properly and easily first time round. The thing that concerns me about the frame possibly being bent is having seen the damage when I bought the bike. The RH engine guard was snapped o...

Re: ST recommission

Cheers M, that's what was puzzling me. It moves beautifully, I can see a very small amount of grease inside, but it looks very clean. With the work it does I was just unsure whether it needs lube, though there are no grease nipples. Newbie, old boy, doesn't matter, everyone learns. Good luck with yo...

Re: ST recommission

Cheers Philippe. Just pressed the new bearings, all greased up, in to the swing arm, about to throw it back in and have now have a question. The UJ on the prop shaft looks very clean, no excess play etc. but...does it need a coat of grease? I imagine it will get flung everywhere but... I've checked ...

Re: ST recommission

Been a while. Small improvements have been made. As I said at the start it was always going to get ridden this year, once safe. Fitted a rear tank rubber, not a big job but the tank is a little more secure now. Fitted a proper battery so the kick start is now tucked away. Fitted a new fuel tap disc ...

Re: Z1000ST restore

For a releasing agent I use a 50/50 mix of AT fluid and acetone, really is excellent.

Re: Air cleaner brackets

Job done with the added bonus that they are made from Kawasaki steel. The original battery carrier that came with the bike had been hacked up, presumably to fit a larger battery, and was at hand. And to completely embarrass myself, when you see the engineering work presented here, these are what wer...

Re: another Newbie here

Give the beasty a clean, new bin bag on the seat, good as new (well much better than mine) and mines a solid runner after being stood up in someone else's garage to 10 odd years, so at least you know the history. There are a lot of good, knowledgeable people on here, you'll have it purring in no tim...

Re: Air cleaner brackets

Thanks very much for the clarification. Looks like I'm back the original question then. Does anyone have the dimensions? I could make them 'to suit' once everything else is in place, but sizes would be better. Primarily the distance between the mounting hole for the frame and the edge of the perpend...

Re: Air cleaner brackets

Not sure, just checked using the official numbers and cross referencing on Cradley's site. The one linked above come out as Z650 and one price, ,the other number, specifically for the ST comes up as 'nfp' but quotes a higher price?? It wouldn't be unheard of for the part to actually be the same with...

Fuel tap repair

Z1000st. The fuel tap doesn't turn off, it constantly flows a little. I've checked the diaphragm and that seems OK, I've replaced the small o ring, so that leaves the rubber disc that controls the flow from on, reserve and prime. I think it's permanently a little on prime. My questions are, can the ...
