Re: Introduction of me

Welcome Mark, I have had a few Kawasakis, currently have a B3 in B1 livery and a modified Zephyr 750 top end on 650 cases. I find Z Power good to use and plenty of used stuff on ebay.

Re: Z1a BHP

Guy that dynoed my 650/810 told me to get at least a 1000 miles on the engine before giving it a hard time. He did some basic jetting to get it running ok to run engine in. Did your guy deliberately keep the revs down because it's been rebuilt or did it not want to go over 7000.

Re: Kz650

Echoing what Warren has said. Things wear out or get damaged. Your frame number is B1 and they did have internal wires through the handlebars. Can you see if the switches have been cut to allow the wires to go below the bars on the outside. I had some switches where that had been done. Handlebars of...

Re: Kz650

Hi. It's a Z650B1, engine number is within range of the frame number which is good.

Re: Front mudguard

Try Agbrigg Chrome in Leeds or Quality Chrome Plating in Hull.

Agbrigg did this for me last week.

Re: Front mudguard

Every now and again a dent can be pushed out on chrome parts. The last two mudguards I restored, I had them dechromed, then took them home and repaired the dent myself. I used to be a panel beater which helps. Then had the chrome redone.

Re: Z650 B1 airbox.

All 650 airboxes are the same if they run slide carbs. It's the F2 onwards that had a different one due to having larger c.v carbs. I have a spare filter cap if you find one without.
As a foot note watch out for the imported ones from the US as they have extra holes for the emissions system.

EDIT. Reread the post and the title says B series. It was the A series that went under bucket. So they may work as Rob says below.

Z650 barrels and/or head

Building a standard Z650 engine. I have the bottom end parts, but need a good set of barrels and pistons. Also a good cylinder head. It is single row cam chain, I could use a early 750 head as long as its drilled for the top roller and has a cable tacho output.

Re: Z650 build, mix of Zephyr, GPZ and B3 650.

With winter finally making a exit in York, I have been able to cover a few miles. Initial run had a cutting out problem where I'd strained one of the wires. Back to the shed and replaced all the old coil terminals. Then off for a nice 35 mile ride in the spring sunshine. https://i.imgur.com/YQk09cp....

Re: GPz550 or Z650 exhaust

I once bought an alledged 650 harris off ebay, when I cleaned it up it was stamped 550. Tried it on 650 and it rubbed on sump. Therefore a 650 exhaust might hang down a bit on a 550 as height of block and head is shorter on ther 550. Spacing between cylinders does match though.
