Re: 900A4 Carburation question

Taffus, I was there as well, happy I had filled up before It happened rather than during, or my PETROL would have been all over with laughing so much.

Engine standing 9 years

I have been asked look at a Z1000, although it’s all there I do know the engine has not been turned over for quite a few years and is out of the bike in the corner of a Garage the rocker cover has been unbolted and put back in position but not sealed, is there anything to be wary of or advise.

Re: 2018 Mega Famous Skegness Run

Great day out the best modified was a close run thing between Padders, Roy and the owner of a Z1 styled chopper, with Padders bike being declared the eventual winner, personally I think if you look at the picture above you will agree the bike has the better burnt orange look 994D76B9-27C1-417C-BA7F-...
