Re: Top idler tower movement

As an experiment I re-fitted the original rubber plates and the movement has gone. They are old but they haven't hardened. I'm not...

If it’s running ok you don’t... if you’ve never had the carbs on a running engine and you’re going to refurb them you might as well replace anything you can unless you’re trying to save money. He says in the original post, he has already put the first carb through ultrasonic cleaner. Therefore In m...

Re: Carburettor refurbishment

I would have thought it was essential to replace buy a carb rebuild kit. You need to buy either Genuine Kawasaki / Mikuni parts , or Keyster carb kits - NRP carbs, Allen’s performance, Saisei.com.

PS I think this thread should be in BIKE HELP.

Re: Float bowl pivot pins

Last set I did just used a very small drill bit and pushed them out. Maybe I was lucky they just fell out. If using force you will need to support rear of nearest post which you are pushing against. Use a centre punch slightly smaller than retaining pin.

They are Z or Kh callipers from 1976 onwards. Totally different to Z1 calipers. What they are off depends on piston size.
