Mikuni VM26 Pilot Jets 17.5 - Hens Teeth ?

Re: UK Grab Rail differences: Z1, Z900, Z1000

I thought the models from 76-78 (Z900A4 and Z1000A1 & A2) had the indicator mounts on the OEM grabrail, whereas the earlier bikes had frame mounted rear indicators.

Re: Bikes For Sale

Nice bikes Bill - would love the H2a: will get one one day, but need to finish a project (or two) before I can fit another bike in my garage.
Cheers Tim.

Re: ZIA revs hanging when throttle is blipped

Have you checked the inlet rubbers for cracks or air bleeds / leaks ? - revs hanging can be a typical symptom.

Re: KZ1000A1

Made a little progress with the A1: all electrics working, timing spot on (new Dyna S fitted), a bit of powder coating, refurbed the switch gear and harness, fitted new tyre, chain, sprocket, sprocket guard, battery, cables, total rebuild of rear brake, and few hours with the Scotchbrite pads and Qu...

KZ1000A1

Just started a retso on my latest project - a US Zed Thou A1, a lot of TLC needed, but one day she will be back to her former glory: trying to keep as much as original as poss as chrome and frame are in good condition.
