Re: Cam Chain & Top Idler Query

Thanks, will acquire / fit a new one.
Chrisu - yes crank was at TDC, but since then I think my ineptitude may have caused me a new issue :-(

Cam Chain & Top Idler Query

Chaps, apologies my spannering skills are a bit limited and any advice would be appreciated. Was checking valve clearances today on my Z1000A1 project - bike is still on my ramp but starts and runs fine with no noises or rattles etc (meant to be low miles but no guarantees). A couple of inlet cleara...

Re: Rear Light Gremlin Z1000 A1

Finally sorted the gremlin - once again thanks for the tips. Cant believe what an absolute b'stard that was: so many hours taken up and it turned out to be something so small and caused by my own bodgery :oops: :oops: Having had almost the entire loom and electrics in bits the last thing I checked w...

Re: Rear Light Gremlin Z1000 A1

Thanks again chaps - will have another go on Wednesday to see if I can eliminate the RH switch and/or instrument harness - I did rebuild the instrument cluster & fitted new loom but may accidentally trapped something :shock:

Re: Rear Light Gremlin Z1000 A1

The torment continues :mad - took onboard the tips and had a real go at sorting the "short", but alas not managed to resolve this and am getting thru 10A fuses at a hell of a rate :D . Not sure how something so simple and on first impressions so easy to resolve has caused such pain and sto...

Re: Rear Light Gremlin Z1000 A1

Thanks for the tips guys; Really is bugging me though :dead as loom and switches look in good order - no obvious bodges, and Ive already had the rear loom fully apart thinking I would quickly find the culprit :evil: I will have a "proper" go at sorting the gremlin this week and let you kno...

Re: Rear Light Gremlin Z1000 A1

Philippe, thanks will double check that tomorrow. CAT3 cheers - yes as you decsribed: bike is totally standard with original loom and fitings, and the brake light works as it should (so do the rear indicators / hazards fed from the same rear wiring harness), but as I turn the lights on whilst the fr...

Re: Sump Pan Removal Z1000A1

Thanks chaps - ill give it a go with a bigger mallet :lol: As all bolts, drain plug / filter etc were removed I was a bit concerned there might be a locating dowel holding it (did not think so, but you never know) so did not want to thrash away too hard with my trusty mallet - she really is putting ...

Hi Chaps, I need to refurbish some carb issues on a Z1000A1 project, but cant seem to find a source for standard Mikuni 17.5 pilot jets. Tried a few searches for VM26 pilots: phoned Allens Performance twice and was told "no one available go away". I emailed them and 48 hours later have zer...
