Re: Misfire from cold start.

My Z1B does that on one cylinder as long as it settles down when warm I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: FOR SALE: 1974 Kawasaki Z1A

Too make the asking price it would need to be 100% and you both know how easy it is to drop £10k into a proper resto. Agreed Paint, pipes, seat, calipers & Discs, Chain Guard, Shocks, Master Cylinder, Spokes, Rear mudguard (UK are not available as pattern) clocks and surrounds (speedo is not Z1...

Re: z1000A2 Chain and sprockets

The 530 pitch has a smaller sprocket diameter for the same number of teeth on the 630 so go as big as you can to keep the chain away from the swinger. To further explain...530 pitch is 1/5 (20%) smaller pitch than 630 (5/8" v 6/8"). Multiplying the 630 dimension by 1.2 will increase every...

Z1000 530 pitch rear sprockets are not available as equivalents from other bikes but can be made.


Correction JTR488 is the equivalent

Correct. Z1000 A2 uses 15T front, 33T rear and 92 links. Multiply by 1.2 to convert to 530.

Something like a JTF513-18 Front with an inner spacer and a JTR488-40 rear with a 112 link chain.

Re: z1000A2 Chain and sprockets

EK, DID, RK, etc all as good as each other nowadays. All down to personal preference and 630 is stock pitch. 530 is slightly lighter and just as strong and cheaper due to it being the more popular fitment on most modern bikes. 530 conversion kits are available from Cybike https://www.cybike.co.uk/S...

Re: FOR SALE: 1974 Kawasaki Z1A

Bearing in mind that Z1B's restored with repro parts have sold for £20k in the past and dealers like Frank would probably put at least another £5k on top if restored to a high standard with genuine parts. It does make prices on bikes in this condition speculative. Good luck with the sale. Take the a...
