Re: Iron curtain revisited.

I've registered with the MZ forum and I'll see if any information comes back from there. :)

Failing that I'll look for a CX500...... :lol: :lol:

Shows what a versatile thing it is, Swirl. :)

Do you still have a CX trike?

Re: Iron curtain revisited.

Hi Guyesdad, I’ve got two of them, both exactly the same! Am I mad!?? Apologies upfront for discussing such a steed inappropriately on this forum! No, that's not madness. It demonstrates a high level of appreciation for motorcycling history as you've saved two from oblivion :vcool :D Nice to see yo...

Re: Iron curtain revisited.

I’m sorry to say but I have two CX500’s :lol: One of them is probably the earliest known survivor and is frame number 22 fitted with engine number 28. They are quirky but easy to ride! I’m a closet CX fan too. Back in the 80s I was in the cops and did the advanced bike course. Week 2 was spent ridi...

Iron curtain revisited.

Gents, Does anyone know of a group/forum/club that would be able to help with old Eastern Bloc motorcycles? I've been offered a late 1960s SHL Gazela M17, a 175cc Polish bike. Found pics on the internet with some specs, but no detailed info. I know it's an ugly MoFo to a lot of people, but I like it...

Re: New GPZ1100B1 project arrived today

Hi Jimbo,
I went to see the bike in the flesh and it's a great starting point. Whatever you choose to do it will be another Zed back on the road. Look forward to seeing how you progress with the project.

Re: Fuel injectors.

Thanks gents.
I've used Injectortune in the past for my 1100 Uni and found them to be spot on.
I have a spare set of injectors, I was recently looking at a B1 that was on carbs and wondered if they'd fit but it's been sold.

Fuel injectors.

Gents,
Can anyone tell me whether the injectors on the GPz1100B1/B2 and the ZX1100A are the same or different?
Thanks in advance.

Re: How to get a V5 from Reg plate

just a thought have your tried lightly sanding with fine grit wet and dry the frame ? I have this with a frame and as you flat and sort of polished the steel it started reveal the numbers really just depends on how the frame was messed with I guess the police used to acid frames to see the old numb...

Mine runs for the first time in God knows how long!
Still a bit of work needed to get it through the MOT, but it lives and that's a big thing. It's made me smile. :vcool

Re: GPZ1000RX Project

I've recently bought an RX and she's not far off running again.
Last on the road in 2002 with 31,000 on the clock. Can't wait to ride it.
That's a great job you've made of yours, Bill.
