Re: Piston Options?

You can bore out to 70mm and use std 1015cc pistons no problem.
Plenty of good used z1000 pistons about and you will only need to buy new rings and circlips.
The liners will actually go out to 71mm (1045cc) .

Re: Ignition Leads

Thanks for that, but I've been told (by a certain specialist company who sell the coils and lead sets) that the Dyna leads will not work with standard coils. Is this just bull ? From an electrical point of view that is 1st class bullshit. But they may mean that the leads diameter is too fat to fit ...

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

You get what you pay for. Those Cruzin image kits are cast whereas the Wiseco's are forged . Personally I think those Cruzin ones are false ecomomy and wouldn't touch them with a pointy stick. Wiseco's reputation (along with MTC, Cosworth etc) for quality and performance on road and track is renowne...

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

You will be ok at 1.25mm liner thickness at the spigot.
The 3mm o's 1105cc kits leave the 1000 liners this same thickness at the spigot.

Re: Coils. HT ORDER 1 -4

Yes! that diagram could be confusing to the uninitiated with the plugs not numbered.
1 coil serves 1 and 4 and the other 2 and 3.
Wasted spark.

Re: Anyone used a BACKTAP before?

Yes! I have used them. Worth their weight in gold if the first few threads are chewed. As in the video, use plenty of grease on it to catch any swarf and then spin the motor a few times to blow out the cylinder. Just be wary to only expand it enough to true the damaged threads and not to open up and...

Re: Carb Stripped Thread

Yes! I have helicoiled quite a few.
I prefer to do that rather than tapping m5 as you have to open out the hole in the bowl or cap and associated gaskets for clearance.

Re: Cam cahin tensioner removal

You will be ok removing the tensioner bolt as long as you don't rotate the engine until it's put back in.

Re: Z1 1972 crankcases for sale

Sold a mint set of undamaged early low number cases like these a couple of years ago and took the £500 I was offered.
All depends on whether the buyer has a frame that puts the numbers within the magic "matching" range.

Re: Best Pod Fiters.

You get what you pay for.
K&N , ramair, Pipercross are the ones to go for.
Cheap Emgo's etc are crap and will cause over rich running and strangle the motor.

Re: Barrels

Simple answer is NO unless you bore the 900 block out.
If you have a 1015 block I have some 903 liners to trade though.
