Re: Repro Z900 A4 Wiring Loom

You've connected it up incorrectly. The ORANGE spade terminal should go to the hazard relay, (I'm sure it doesn't matter which terminal). The BROWN & the RED wires go to the BROWN & RED wires of the diode block & there should be a BLACK wire on the diode block, that should go to the othe...

Re: Wheel balancing nightmare.

I think you may have misunderstood me! Yes, I think you're right :oops: Sometimes I guess you can get a wheel/tyre set-up that isn't too far out balance wise. Your picture looks like the wheel has a metal dust cap fitted. If it is metal, you could maybe try removing the dust cap & see if it aff...

Re: Wheel balancing nightmare.

Forgot to say your locking tabs look a bit of a mess !! :D There has to be a knack of tightening those bolts without them gripping the tabs & twisting them up like yours. Have you tried putting a tiny bit of grease unter the bolt head prior to tightening ? Or filing a chamfer on the underside of...

Re: Wheel balancing nightmare.

In order to balance a wheel the balancer must be on a flat, level surface. If your balancer does not have adjustable feet you could fit four M8 bolts in the base to act as feet. You could then use these feet to level the balancer before you start trying to balance a wheel. Fitting a "bulls-eye&...

Re: Z900 1976 chain guard

Correct Lester wheels for the Z900's had the standard four bolt discs. Your Lesters must be for one the earlier models, i.e. Z1, Z1A & Z1B. These all had the thicker, six bolt discs. A single disc was standard on these models too. However, the original hubs like the Lesters should be drilled &am...

Re: Z900 1976 chain guard

Can't help with the spares, but depending how accurate you want to be a '76 Z900 should have four bolts holding the discs on not the earlier six bolt version.

Re: Wiring loom question

Maybe it's a combined rectifier/regulator, green plug goes to the green socket, black wire is the earth & the white wire is the charging wire for the battery. It's possible if you leave the white wire disconnected the battery will go flat ?

Re: Registering my Z

The "purchased" date I would assume would be the date you took ownership, (regardless of whether money changed hands or not).

Because it's come from within the EU, no tax is liable as Chrisu says.

Re: Clutch jump

My bike's clutch was exactly the same. I tried oiling the clutch cable first, then changing the clutch cable, then cleaning & re-greasing the mechanism, but it remained the same. I then fitted one of these kits from Cybike, https://www.cybike.co.uk/Shop/Products/modified-specials3/easy-clutch-re...
