Re: DOHC infill

if you can get the part off the bike so the raised letters are flat it helps the paint to go where it should. I used some heat resistant black paint and blobbed it in with a pointed wooden stick ( like a BBQ skewer). You can push the paint around with the point to get it in the corners and it levels...

Re: How to find out original colour

look for traces behind badges/ grommets/ rubbers or inside/ underneath tank & panels or fuel filler cap/ catches.
a lot of painters wont get right in around those and there may be some original bits to spot somewhere.
Such as where front tank to frame mounting rubbers go or threads above fuel tap.

Re: 4:2 exhausts....z1000 A options ??

You can fit repros if you are prepared to separate the silencer from mid section. Would only look ok if you did both sides though !! The last pic on my ebay advert shows it done on a Z1000. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232947255873?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 However - Z650...

Re: Z1R fuel sender cover

try doremi usa
they do the complete repro set in your image.
you may be able to persuade them to part with a cap or divulge the suppliers details.

Re: Dismantling ignition barrel - pin removal

There are similar roll pins to hold Z1 fuel cap in place. Soak with penetrating oil and then I selected a suitable diameter drill bit and tapped it out with that as a drift. Obviously a vice or similar to hold it good and steady helps. I also found the pins were more inclined to tap out from one sid...
