Re: Valve seal

The oil is there just because it's been on the side stand.
HOWEVER! If you keep the bike on the mainstand it will allow the oil held around the cam buckets to drain away and limit the amount of oil that can seep down the guides which will then reduce the amount of smoke you get on start up...

Re: Harris Build

It's hard to tell in the pics with all the carbon and shadows but that doesn't look like a Uni head so most likely a B. If that's the case you want a B or a J head but the thread damage you describe could easily repaired by a good machinist like the head in the following pic that was repaired by Deb...

Re: Harris Build

If it's a B1 motor then a 'J' head will fit or any with a full hemi (non bathtub) 70mm combustion chamber. Having 'B' engine numbers does not mean it is B spec as the cases are the same as the unitrack and the internals are interchangeable. You need to measure the gudgeon pin diameter as only the UN...

Re: Harris Build

I assume I can use either a Unitrak head or a B2 head ? Are there any other's that are compatible? No. Unitrack head has different (steeper) exhaust valve angles to the B2 and all the others. If you have a unitrack bottom end (18mm gudgeon pins) you need to use the Uni head unless you want to get i...

Re: Base Gasket Problem?

A couple of weeks ago I had to remove the head from my newly built engine . I didn't replace the base gasket as I didn't disturb the barrels. When I torqued the head (new head gaskets) I could see oil oozing out of the base gasket, it looks like oil has seeped across the face of the base gasket whe...

Re: 5th gear whine

Thanks for that I was thinking the same, Might be worth looking for a second hand gear box before I strip it. What year of Zs have the same gearbox ? All 903 and 1015 kickstart motors use the same box with the mk2's being slightly stronger. Obviously the later the year or lower the mileage the less...

Re: Z900 - Z1000 VM26 carb difference

Have replied to this on FB.
All VM26's on 900 and 1000 are basically the same bodies and all parts interchangable.

Re: STAFFORD 2018

I'm thinking of maybe putting my z900 on my stand which is one of the inside halls. As I have never had a stand at the event before, what's the security like when the event is closed? i.e is it safe to leave the bike on my stand over night? Cheers Had no problems leaving my bikes on the club stand ...
