Re: Z1000A project

As a matter of interest. What do you guys recommend when it comes to paint or powder coat. I guess you’ve all discussed this to death and perhaps it just comes down to personal preferences. The reason I ask though is because someone has told me definitely not to as the “frames are made of chocolate...

Re: Hello and KZ900LTD advise

If you always wanted a z900 for the looks and something to enjoy and not a money maker then buy the LTD and build it with the 900 bodywork and 18 rear wheel.
It will look and ride the same and although it won't be a pukka 900 on paper who cares.

Re: Crankshaft damage - advice needed.

The maximum torque applied to the M8 bolt on its own isn't enough to prevent the rotor from spinning (even when lapped) especially on deceleration when the rotors inertia doesn't want to slow down as fast as the crank which then allows the rotor to rotate anticlockwise and simultaneously slackens of...

Re: Zpower carb inlet rubbers issue

Something like one of these plates which bolt to the carb tops and modified with a tie bar attachment to the frame tubes under the tank would be the neatest solution.

Re: Zpower carb inlet rubbers issue

Even the genuine ones can split from the weight of unsupported carbs when losing the airbox.
The aftermarket boots do split quicker though.
I always rig up some sort of support to reduce the chance.

Re: Z1000A project

The cap is only broken on the bridge and not the shell holder and is also one that doesn't control end float so can still be used as is.

Re: Viton choke plunger seat replacements for Mikuni VM carbs and now any others with 8 mm diameter plunger heads.

A bit of an update on the plunger re-seating. It seems that pretty much all Mikuni choke plungers use the same 8mm diameter head so i am now able to service almost any Mikuni rubber seated plunger. This is not confined to just slide carbs but also CV's and includes most Kawasaki ,Suzuki and Yamaha m...

That's a rule I didn'y know about

Nothing in the rules about needing pics.
Only needs a price unless it's an auction.

Re: Dyna S coils

Simple answer = YES!.
Also watch the clearance between the coil mounting post and the terminals to avoid any shorts and also that the length of the posts are long enough so that the coil body isn't touching the frame when they are tightened down.

Re: Couple of questions

1. The washers won't need to be reannealed but i'd just flip them over when re-fitting.
2. You can use whatever leads you like.

Re: Loose gear linkage

If you unclip the rod end you can run some braze or weld on to the back side of the loose ball linkage to make it solid again.
Done it many times.

Re: Carb Rebuild Kits

Only use genuine Mikuni or Keyster parts and only replace parts that are clearly damaged or worn. Usual parts are gaskets, 'O' rings, float valve ,choke plunger seal and sometimes the mixture screws with chewed heads or broken tips. The rest of the carb components rarely need anything but a good cle...
