Re: Thou A2 master cylinder paint.

Thank you Phillipe, i have no spray equipment so cannot do it the same way, i will be moving the M.C on after i have finished the re-furb and the only reason for the re-furb is that the non obtanium diaphragm is in perfect condition.

Re: A2 master cylinder.

It's gone to past parts, it would of gone in the bin but the non obtainable diaphragm is like new and would have been a shame, so i will rebuild it and sell it.

Re: Carburettor Help

I have a 26 set in front of me and the inlet throat has a thicker wall where they have not been machined out as much as Fox's, i would say the are 28's you have there.

Re: Z900 - Z1000 VM26 carb difference

Certain carbs have short pilot jets, the spare set i have for the ltd models have long pilot jets, the ones on my bike are from an A2 have the short jets and it used to have a ltd stand and when left on the side stand it would stall, got an A2 stand and that cured the problem.

Re: Carbs for sale

They are for Z1000-A1, the position of the air/fuel mixture screw gives it away. I’d suggest the restored set is £175-200 but would be best to advertise stating of unkown condition. So many of these restored carbs are rubbish and don’t perform on the bike. A1 did not have vacuum tap, that came in o...
