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!

Re: Ignition advancer

Not sure this follows exactly but i guess that if its the standard advance unit it must then have the standard pulser coils and therefore the standard IC igniter? If its popping and miss-firing and spitting at low revs i would be taking a look at the IC igniter. Could be nearly 40 years old now. Tha...

Re: Cannot get float heights correct

I have bought supposedly good float needles from a reputable company and found eventually that they were too short which meant the tang on the float was hitting the outer rim of the brass seat before the valves would close.

Re: Ignition advancer

If you remove the cam from the advance unit there should be a thin spring steel shim behind it. If there is take it off and save it somewhere. They have been known to split and jam the cam and prevent it moving freely. Equally important with the new one because if it is not opening correctly it prob...

Re: Mikuni RS36 fuel overflow issue

As above from Julian but got pizzed off with that so bought another alloy bottom bung, the one with the 17mm hex on it. Drilled a hole in it and rivetted / glued a short bit of brass tube into it. Attach a bit of clear tube and use it whilst its running to set the fuel height dynamically which is fa...

Re: Gpz1100b1 side stand

The 'three' spring version bracket looks like this except the bit on the bottom where its hit the track :D
I didnt think they were interchangeable because the bracket is so much different and the three spring affair has so may closely working parts to it!!

Re: Z1B Restoration

Looking really nice well done. Was just reading about the starter clutch problem and looking at the photos' on this thread and wondered if it has been over on its side at some point that might explain the cracked crankcase and the issues of spacing you have had. The missing embossed logo on the gene...

Re: Z1000R Paintwork

I did the tank on the J with POR15 about three years ago. Not had a single problem with it. Lucky, maybe. Just done the other tank as i was so impressed with it. Is it leaking? But to answer the question; i dont know how or even if you can get rid of POR15. It is essentially Hammerite!! Frost Auto R...

Re: Z1100R First Ride Problem

Jon just speaking for myself; if i filled the tank right up i would always turn the tap to off (ON) when i parked it. I would try not to fill the tank to the top if it was going to get parked 'hot' or if possible not on the side stand if full and hot. Did you hear it venting from the fuel filler cap...

Re: Z1000R Paintwork

I have two J tanks which have round holes for the sender unit. I have an 1100R tank with an oval one which looks the same as the one pictured!!! The grey stuff in the tank looks just like POR15. The 'matches' poking through are mig welds. The two small repairs aren't covering anything up they would ...
