Re: Seat for Gpz1100B1

Ha, i only know what i know same as everyone else. I am guessing the J, B, 1000R and 1100R share the same seat base with the same front tabs and same swinging catch arms and locking mechanism. Happy to be corrected. I think P&K seats may be able to do you a foam for a J B or 1000R / 1000R base t...

Re: Gpz1100B1/B2 Exhaust

I was talking with Larry at PDQ in Slough a couple of months back. He had a standard 1100 Unitrak or 1100 B full four into two sitting on his floor for sale. Black chrome affair. Probably gone now and may not have been what youre looking for but if you were........

Re: Wiseco 1170 kit Gpz1100

Hello Zippy i am interested in the 1100 cylinder block only. If whoever buys the pistons does not want it perhaps we can sort something out.
I dont need the piston kit because i just recently bought a new set.

Re: Seat for Gpz1100B1

Had a couple of seat covers from here.
Functional, adequate, robust.
Think he does some foams and maybe other bits too.

Re: Testing the tacho drive on a set of Gpz1100B2 clocks

You need a sig. generator and perhaps oscilloscope to test the speedo PCB. Think its square wave, blah blah blah, woffle woffle but thats all hocus pocus to me. Tacho should be a straight pulsed signal and if you give it to me i can test it for you. Alternatively there are two members at least on he...

Re: Gpz1100B1/B2 Exhaust

Dont know if this is legit but the Marving manufacturers also do / did a 'Master' system. A bit like standard J 1000. Need a bit of research i think with an enquiring phone call or two. Made to order apparently, available through WEMOTO https://www.wemoto.com/bikes/kawasaki/z_1000_j1/81/picture/marv...

Re: Ignition advancer

I agree, on full volumetric flow RS 34's will be about 10 or 15% more than CV34's and for the same reason of the restriction of the butterfly valve in the mouth RS's suffer less running anomalies than the CV's through the low and mid range throttle openings. The sizing comes down to whether youre mo...

Re: Ignition advancer

RS 34 is about right for a standard bike. Original CV's on J models etc. are 34mm. RS carbs work more or less spot on straight out of the box for a range of engine formats and states of tune / cc etc. Apart from the tendency for them to overfill (see recent threads on this subject) it normally only ...

Re: Pressurising Front Forks of Gpz1100B1

As above; use an old school bicycle pump. I also used a low range trials tyre pressure gauge when setting mine. The process of testing with the gauge looses some of the pressure so if youre target is 7, pump them beyond that to say 11 PSI and test (2PSI lost) test again (2PSI lost) bingo target 7. h...

Re: Ignition advancer

As above from Mark but in the short term or longer term you are likely going to have to go the Dyna 'S' route anyway.
Dyna 'S' is simple, effective, inconspicuous, reliable, compatible and cheapish if you consider the price of NLA original components or the grief of having it not play ball.

Re: idle screws on 1100R

This copy is; Second Edition (4) Sept 1st 1988 (I).
The UK banned TEl lead in petrol in 2000, the USA in 1996, but Japan (perhaps the first) banned it in 1986.
Course it could just be a typo!
