Re: ZIA revs hanging when throttle is blipped

New cables and hanging revs always usually points to not enough slack in the cables.
Try backing off the cable adjusters a couple of turns before doing anything else.

Re: Starter Clutch

Ok. Assembly sounds correct. Thick thrust washer with inner chamfer facing crank bearing. Starter gear with needle roller, thinner thrust and clutch assembly with rotor.. If the starter gear is locking up without the dished damper installed then the whole assembly in nipping up on the thrust washers...

Re: Z1100R First Ride Problem

Sounds like the float valve not seating , maybe due to contaminants in the fuel.
Have to say that my Zeds run like crap on Tesco Momentum and I avoid it like the plague.

Re: Starter Clutch

The large starter gear needs to free wheel clockwise otherwise it will drive the starter motor which is most likely the noise you can hear. Try the assembly without the dished rubber damper in place . If the gear spins it needs a thinner damper or the existing one lapping on a flat surface to reduce...

Re: Shimming Z1000 A1 1977

29mm over bucket shims used in all 903,1015,998 and 1089cc aircooled engines except of course the GPZ1100 Unitrack and others that use the 13mm under bucket ones.
Exchange shims are available to members through the club and new from CYBIKE etc.

Dyna 'S' doesn't use an ignitor.

Re: fuel tank - holes and rust

Any sort of chemical metal is a bodge and WILL fail sooner or later.
Probably sooner.
The only fix is by a skilled welder.
Oxy/acet or Tig is the only way to go.
If repaired correctly any sort of tank liner will not be needed and I personally avoid it like the plague.

Re: Dyna S ignition on Z1000a1 - gremlin

Never bothered with the light test but sounds like you have the light either connected to a permanent live or it's the fact that the coils are powered up all the time with a dyna. Just hook up the dyna, static time it and then fire it up. Easy way to see if it's sparking without starting is to simpl...

Re: loose cylinder liner.

Loose liners are common and usually not a problem and it's very unlikely for a loose fit to be the cause of any noise. I have had liners that could be pushed out cold by hand that cause no running issues or noise. Once the head is bolted down the liners cannot move or rotate as the top hat flange of...

Re: bike cuts out when hot.

Sounds electrical if' it's heat/resistance related. If the whole system shuts down it's likely the ignitor . If it's just a couple of cyls then coil or pick-up. I'd check the fuel tank breather first though just in case it's the tank vacuuming and starving the carbs. Simple to check by opening the c...

Re: REDUCED! :wiseco 1075 conversion

1015 barrels won't fit the 998 J without modification for the slipper tensioners.. You could use the pistons as they are the same 17mm pin but the pin sits higher in the earlier 1015 pistons than the J and the 1015 block is taller so you would lose compression which would require a shortened J block...

Re: Running non vacuum carbs off a vacuum tap z1000

Just run a vac pipe from one of the rubber inlet manifolds where you would normally attach the vac gauges.
It will do exactly the same job and when you want to balance the carbs just unplug the tap vac pipe from the intake boot and use prime to get the fuel feed.
