Re: Ignition advancer

Probably the next best thing. These are 36, 38, 40 i could not find 34mm but this supplier or another will sell you the right thing.They appear to be about 2/3 the price of K&N's. EDIT; it says 33mm on the blister pack!!!!!!!!! AL https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kawasaki-Z1000J-Z1100R-ERL-APE-Super-P...

Re: Ignition advancer

Are the carb boots in good condition and glued onto the head? There are two different sorts; one for CV's and a slightly different number for RS carbs. Are the air filters obscuring the air correction and fuel enrichment jets which RS carbs have pressed into a prominent part of the casting at the mo...

Re: GPZ1100 generator rotor

I want to cut the centre hub out and use it for an endurance bike so i can mount the clutch/starter gear etc. If you cant get one an alternative might be the drive flange from the Electrex World generator RPKS 3112 http://z1ownersclub.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=41306 They supply spare pa...

Re: Carb balancing

The first float bowl you empty will be the bowl plus the fuel in the hose above it. Subsequent ones no so much, but not impossible to replicate. On mine it would measure the bowl in question plus part of the others as well, as each bowl is linked at the bottom for the accelerator pump. I also have t...

Re: MK2 rear master cylinder

This is the Kawasaki diagram from CMSNL for an 1980 A4 Z1000. There appears not to be a separate part listed there.

Re: possible cylinder head issue

Z1100R i think from youre intro. 29 Lbs/ ft as standard but they will take more. What does the noise sound like? The exhaust gaskets leak without provocation and are simple to check. I would go there before taking drastic measures. If its an engine speed ticking noise it could be either but if no si...

Re: Z1100R First Ride Problem

Where exactly is the leak coming from? You mentioned earlier from the rear overflow. That would have to be the one coming out of the bottom of the air box! Had a really annoying leak on mine the other day coming from the bottom of float bowl number 1. Turns out it was the in-line filter had cracked ...

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.
