Sampled some empty roads

Instead of watching the footy I decided to take the A2 for an (almost) deserted roads run out.

Re: Victoria Bikers Pub

Yes - now you mention it I did see a maroon 400 departing. - looking very clean. If I had seen it parked I would have come over for a closer look - I jumped off a KH250 straight on to a brand new purple KH400 in 1979. The blend of power (much more than the 250) coupled with a fantastic exhaust noise...

Re: Victoria Bikers Pub

Went to this pub tonight - nothing interesting in the car park but saw a z1a on the road not far from the pub!
Nice night for a run out - whatever the destination -
No traffic

Re: Well its a Kwak and its green and it was cheap !

I too had a C1 (green one) and I found it very fast with superb brakes. The only minus point was in cold weather it would suffer carb icing. You could add a silkolene additive to the fuel which resolved the problem. I believe C2 and E models have some kind of heating to alleviate. It is a great bike...

Re: z1r rear light bracket

Uk ones have the indicator stems welded as part of the light bracket

Us ones are as in the pic and the indicators attach to the frame lugs
so if you get the US ones you will need the indicators separately.

Re: Indicators

I have mini indicators fitted to a Z1R - similar to these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bike-It-Mini-Indicators-Long-Stem-In-Carbon-Look-With-Clear-Lens-Pair/302296106669?hash=item46624086ad:g:mAAAAOSwkShZAGhz Not too difficult to fit & if you don't like clear lens they also come in the usual ambe...

Re: Z1R Front Brake Lines

These are the best pics I can take at the moment. If you are after something identical to original in appearance you will spot they are slightly narrower and also slightly less matt - more of a silk black in appearance. It was not an issue for me and the performance more than makes up for it. They c...

Re: Z1R Front Brake Lines

I have Hel (black finish) brake lines - front and rear - on an otherwise standard set up Z1R.
They work very well and I would recommend them.

Cheers

Re: 'New' KH250...

I had one on an R plate for about 18 months and learned to ride on it while saving for something with more performance. I enjoyed riding it but my lasting memory is I always wanted it to go faster! It is physically large for a 'measly' 250 but that makes it a comfortable bike to ride and in my opini...

Re: Z1R Right Seat Rail

Just a thought that you can get parts repaired professionally.
I used this service a few years ago for some zx9r parts

End results were very good.

Re: Z1R Handlebars

I have a Z1R (D1) and a Z1000 A2

A2 bars are I believe slightly lower than predecessors - (A1 and the 900's.)

Z1R bars are definitely lower and narrower than A2

I do not wish to sell the bars on either bike!
