Like it but that rear caliper bolt will leave a witness mark on that piggy back shock.

They can be be better as they give an extra squirt of fuel on initial quick throttle openings.

Re: z1000st carbs

If they are they will have a take off stub on number three carb, if not you can use one of the vacuum ports on the inlet stubs.

Re: Cost of paint

Try Ace of sprays at Bristol, he done mine, really good work, and is doing another tank for me in the same design as i wanted a standard cap instead of an aero filler, tank alone is about 450 but it has a lot of airbrushing making it more.

Re: Carbs

They look like 28mm, does the bike run fine with the stubbs open, if so they are breathers, just stick your finger over the stubbs when running to check for vacuum.

Re: Carbs

Depending on which model carbs you have one of the stubbs may be a vacuum take off for a vac operated petrol tap, for non vac taps they are just breathers, the bung makes me think you have later A2 carbs.

Re: Best chrome 4:1 Exh for a Z1?

For me it would be Delkevic all the way, i have the straight type on my 350/4 and had one on my XS650, the quality is good the price is better and they are not going to suffer with rust, although you get that brown discolouration on the headers, that just shows the bike is getting used.

Re: A4 Carb T-Pieces repair?

So in effect what you are saying is new would be best, and that is exactly what i do with any of these old rubber parts, soaking these parts in thinners, silicone, green soap, is just temporary, may as well bite the bullet and buy new.

Re: Z900A4 Carbs

Yes put the carbs back on first, if the rubbers are hard, bin them and buy new, beats a lot of huffing and puffing.

Re: A4 Carb T-Pieces repair?

The only downside to doing this is if the carbs are left dry again for a period of time, the tee's shrink back again.
