Re: Double the troublez. AMA style Z1000 and Moriwaki Z1R.

First job on the long list is to get the Yamaha XJR1300 swingarms in. The original Zed spindle and pivot hole should ideally be 16mm but in actual fact the hole is 16.2mm and the spindle is 15.8mm so a massive 0.4mm slack fit that translates to much more at the rear wheel end which doesn't do the bi...

Double the troublezz. AMA style Z1000 and Moriwaki Z1R Turbo.

Been working very sporadically on a couple of zed projects that will eventually emerge as a pair of AMA superbike style machines and now have made enough slow progress to make it worth starting a build thread. This may/will take a while as I'm still needing lots of parts and i'm not in a hurry. Both...

Re: possible cylinder head issue

17nm is 12.5 ft/lbs and is too much no matter what the book says.
8 to 10 ft/lbs or the equivalent is the maximum, especially given the age of the alloy.
I never use a torque wrench on these and just nip them by hand with a 10 mm spanner.

Re: Z1R and MK2 seat or bases. ANY CONDITION..

Correct with the MK2 but using the Z1R because it's the frame I have and it's basically the same anyway.
Frame is registered so going to be a road going AMA rep with daytime mot .
Don't know when i'll be posting in projects, it's a very long term build that doesn't make regular progress..

Re: GPZ 1100 UNITRACK Head Gasket Leak

Awesome, I will do that then. Thank you. Here's a subsequent question - how hard is it to change the cam chain, mine is at the full extent of the auto adjuster and there is some backlash in the engine when you line up the timing marks with the arrows on the Cam drive wheels, I you don't know me but...

Re: Rear sprocket machining to get chain alignment

Without having the bike I wouldn't know off hand for that swingarm. What I do is get the front end in then the swinger and wheel in and set the ride height I want and go from there. Every swing arm is different but to get you in the right direction i'd start by setting the distance from the wheel sp...

Re: Rear sprocket machining to get chain alignment

They just unscrew but are usually loctited in at the factory and can be very tight. A bit of heat should soften the loctite and they may unscrew with two nuts locked together. Failing that it's stud extractor time which will most likely muller the threads so new studs will be needed. I do this a lot...

Re: Z1 valve seal replacement

Just need a valve compressor at the least, which I presume you already have as you surely didn't have the head blasted with the valves in ? Pop the seals on by hand with a bit of assembly lube or oil on them to help them slip on. Lube the guides and valve stems and slide them in with a twist as they...

Re: possible cylinder head issue

Left side caps control cam end float. Has the cap sheared on the bridge joining the two halves or across the actual shell holder ? If it is the bridge you can either have it welded or remove the bridge and use the cap in two halves. Ideally the now seperate caps will need the other bolt holes fittin...
