Re: Paint codes for Z1 brown/ orange

Some period Paint codes http://kawtriple.com/mraxl/paint.html

As said above though, too many variations in the original candy colours, so much better to get a decent painter to match to your exact shade rather than buying off the shelf touch ups, unless you're doing a full repaint of course.

Also if it's happening when the bikes been stood it's worth checking the Fuel tap itself isn't passing. Pretty common on these old gravity taps - more so if they've dried out at some point.

Welcome... Lots of helpful owners and advice on here - so take FULL advantage of it. There are a million and one 'Restored' Z1's for sale, but some are not quite the lovingly restored & cherished bikes the adverts would have you believe, so if you spot a possible purchase always worth a post her...

Re: 1974 Z1 for sale

I'm finding that a lot of USA bikes are getting expensive, especially those targeting the lucrative UK market. I often turn bikes down because they are simply too expensive by the time you got them here and sorted them out. And then months later they are still unsold... I think an outsider looking ...

Re: One of the H1A's has to go

Nice.

I had this UK (points) one a couple of years ago and have never seen another one other than at Stafford. The H1's were the original 'Widowmakers' and not the later H2 like everyone seems to think.

Re: z power center stand

Don't know if it's the same with Zeds but Seem to recall this coming up a while ago with Pattern Triple stands. Seems the metal is much thinner and easier to bend.

Re: clean engine

There are no 'Quick' ways to clean an engine, otherwise every ones lump would be super clean.

Happy to tell you how I do them, but it takes time, effort and a lot of patience.
