Re: Running again after 9 years! Just! Advice for a layman please!

Before you start ripping the sump off check the left hand alternator case where the wiring enters, VERY common place for leaks which will run down onto the bottom of the engine. The usual problem with bikes that have been laid up is blocked pilot circuits/jets. You could try an 'Italian Tune Up' to ...

Re: Z1000 1977

Too far away from standard. What he said. A gen UK Z1000 with all the correct UK spec bits would be worth well North of £10K, but the amount of time effort and cash it would take to get this example to that standard would make it uneconomic unless there have some kind of personal attachment to the ...

Re: Z1 Paintwork

Just started a restoration of a '72 Z1 and looking for recommendations for someone who can do the paintwork. It's going to be candy orange / brown and did consider a new paint set from Z-Power but as the tank, panels and tail piece are good I'd like to keep the originals and have them painted provi...

Re: Another GPZ1100 B2 contemplating sale,whats its worth?

Stick it on the Bay for £6K and see what happens.... It seems many buyers are now looking for the next 'investment' Model, and given even poorly restored Bitza Z1/900's are advertised for £15K then the focus seems to have moved onto these 80's Big Zeds. The bike looks tidy and mainly original so tic...

Re: For sale: Z900 A4

Nice - and looks to have all the original hard to get bits.

Very rare in 2019 to find such an original unmolested example.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: H2B Air Intake System

Hi, I know this is a long shot but before I sink cash into a new replica one from the States, has anyone got or know anyone who has an air intake system (or part of) for a 1974 H2B ? The whole thing comprises https://z1parts.net/kawasaki-h2-750-com ... rrencyId=3 but would consider parts if availab...

Re: Z1B-900

as for the paint well I'll live with it for a while. TBH it's more the positioning of the stripes, the paint itself looks pretty close. Pic below is my old 'B', Paint & Stripes are factory original but was re-lacquered to cover a little fading. Note the bottom stripes rise from the back of the ...

20191017_172524.jpg Here's a picture of my 1975 Z1B-900 all date codes are right. I got it for a bargain and have done a small amount of work, exhaust, chain guard, airbox and detailing, very low mileage (4600k). Any ideas on a value? Many thanks Nice B.
