Nice.

I thought KZ900 - Nebraska bikes frames started with "5" ?

Engine - Frame numbers 17,000 odd apart?

More likely to be at the airbox side as the head side is a much tighter fit.


But that won't really effect the erratic running ?

Re: Forks knocking at full extension/rebound

Double check your engine mounts (front especially) are tight :!:

Re: Z1000 a1 Valve stem seals head on

Can be done as you say - but fiddly, so probably better to bite the bullet & give her a good decoke & check whilst you're at it.

Re: Coils

If you’re gonna sell the bike on, or not ride it much, maybe okay?
But, if it’s a usable KEEPER, get some decent kit, like Dyna!

You will not get bent valves by using incorrect ATU type/year, just a bit of timing error. Always set cams using a positive stop thru' the plughole to find TDC!

As for ignition timing, a few degrees here and there won't be too critical - but agree with your comments on varying ATU's.
