Re: Z1R Airbox

It’s a Marving Paul...because of its fixing point on the frame you can angle it upwards on an A4...on a Z1 it tends to lie flatter.

Z1R Airbox

Hi Guys, I stuck a piece on the `Bike Help` section yesterday to try to identify the airbox I removed from my Z900-A4 a while back having now fitted bellmouths. It transpires it's from a Z1R, but has the California style US intake. I was hoping it was a genuine Z900-A4 version and I was going to be ...

Re: Airbox Identification

Thanks guys.
Compo....that kind of makes sense. The bike came off the line in Lincoln, Nebraska and, from the small amount of info I’ve found on it’s history, it spent most of it’s life in California prior to being imported over here.

Airbox Identification

Gentlemen, I've had this sitting in my garage for a while. I removed it from my Z900-A4 when converting to bellmouths. I've had a look on the site and seen some crazy posts with regards to airboxes and value. I'm not one for nut and bolt restorations and genuine parts have never really bothered me. ...

Re: Marving exhaust

Here's a pic of the Marving on my A4. The end can is up fairly up-swept and I machined my own cap that I had chromed...a mate had one on his Z1 and it sat a lot flatter due to different fixing position.

Re: Z650 Special...not for the purist.

Cheers Lee. I hadn't planned to touch the crank other than, as you say, big ends. I'm only upping the standard engine to a Wiseco 700 setup and don't want to go to crazy.
Yours is looking good...the 750 engine is a great way to go. The turbo setup looked cool...was that out to 810?

Re: Z650 Special...not for the purist.

Cheers Foz....I might well take you up on that. My original intention was to run a replica tank. I'd contacted TAB Classics to enquire about fabricating one. The price wasn't too bad but obviously I'd need various modifications with regards to the underside configuration so as it'll fit the 650 fram...

Re: Z650 Special...not for the purist.

it was always my intention to run some period Rickman bodywork. I'll be fabricating a fuel cell to sit under the dummy tank.

Re: Z650 Special...not for the purist.

The engine casings have been vapour blasted and barrels bored to 64mm diameter ready to accept a set of 700 Wiseco pistons. The engine will be built from the ground up and internals replaced if worn or damaged. I'll be looking for a set of slightly breathed on cams....I understand a set of Andrews #...

Re: Z650 Special...not for the purist.

Some of you may remember my post in the `for sale` section of the forum where I sold all the parts off the donor bike that were surplus to requirements. I've since gone on to have a set of wheels built, by Steve at Wheelwise, based around a set of Borani rims. i opted for a slightly wider rear rim t...
