Re: Bill Hahn Ignition parts.

Nothing on US Ebay or Craigslist yet.
May have a lead on the drag bike forum for the cover.
Luckily all the dizzy and retarder are there so last resort i can make the bottom pulley and cover if i have to.

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 ...

Better to remove the bridge and use as 2 separate caps.

Re: Carb question

Lifting the needles is what has hidden/masked the lean condition flat spot but this is not ideal as you will also be running rich in all other areas . You will be slightly down on power and also use more fuel than you need to although you probably won't notice and it won't really do any harm. To be ...

Re: smoking exhaust

White/blue smoke = oil burning. It's common when the bike has been stood for a while and it should clear up after a few miles. If not it's most likely the stem seals on their way out. Not a big problem until you start using more oil than petrol and you resemble one of the red arrows tearing down the...
