Re: Z1000 st frame number

Yes! Frame number should be on the same line but lower down towards the bottom yoke.

Re: z1100 and z1000J compatability help needed

Should do as long as the top end isn't GPZ unitrack as the gudgeon pins are 18mm not 17 of the J.
Most z1100's are based on the J bottom with 17mm pins and a unitrack type head with shim over buckets.
Apart from that the actual castings and covers etc are a bolt on fit.

Re: Z900 Kick Start

It should be a tightly pressed in and shouldn't move.
To be sure grip it with pliers and if it won't easily pull out (like it shouldn't) leave it.

Re: Z1R Fuel cap vent

Does sound like a blocked vent but to be sure go for a ride with a brim full tank then when the spluttering starts open the cap and if there's a hiss and the spluttering subsides it's the vent..

Re: Bill Hahn Ignition parts.

Nothing on US Ebay or Craigslist yet.
May have a lead on the drag bike forum for the cover.

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

Hoses are basically insulated so will have little or no bearing on the cooling of the oil. You want the shortest,quickest path for the oil to travel from the pump to the main gallery, especially on initial start up from cold. Having the hose fittings on top of the cooler help a lot as the cooler rem...

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

That's interesting, the hoses run right behind the engine block gathering all that heat. This is kinda what I'm trying to avoid ! Won't make a difference when the bike is on the move. A cooler fitted is better than no cooler at all. Best to run the hoses between the intake rubbers so that the oil h...

Re: Z1000J idling too fast after carb balance

Sounds like the balance screws are set too high and they are overriding the tickover screw. Carefully back each of them off by an equal amount until you get close to the idle rpm you need then lift the revs with the idle screw and repeat . Once you have a stable idle that can be lowered by the idle ...
