Re: First ride out in ages...

Thats a beautiful A1 - she looks great. :up What did you use on the engine to get that shine - very nice. Strange coincidence, but I recently finished my A1 resto and its developed a leaking petcock (brand new PMC unit - got some Kawa genuine seals to retro fit) and a potential blockage / gremlin to...

Re: Indicator rechroming

Gav, hi Just had my Z1000A1 petrol filler cap re-chromed (and its made of best quality monkey metal): went in looking well tired and came back shiny and new. The chromer said the end product might not be perfect, but it turned out very nice. The guy I use is based in Hinckley: might be worth a call ...

1977 Z1000A1 Carb Sync query

Guys, trying to fettle my A1 and a job I need to do is sync / balance the carbs.
Last bike I did was a Z1300 and was advised to aim for between 18 - 25 in / hg
Is there a recognised target range to aim for with a totally standard Zed thou carb set up ?

Any advice appreciated - Cheers Tim

Re: My Z1000A1 - 99% done

Managed to sort the rear light bracket and number plate positioning and have put UK spec rear shocks on her - I'm pleased as those little changes makes the bike look better. Re exhausts heat shields - I tried to fit the pair of standard heat shields off my old knackered exhausts and could not get th...

My Z1000A1 - 99% done

Today I wheeled my Z1000A1 resto out of the garage for the first time in 18 months - hopefully the shake down runs (when permitted) wont produce too many gremlins. Tried to keep her as original as I could, all chrome is original except the "Busso Pipes" grab rail and Petrol filler cap (whi...

Re: Seized sump drain plug!

Andrew, had same issue with both a Z13 and my Z900 - only one year after doing an oil / filter change. I tried a little penetrating oil, heat and an extension bar but there was more chance of the bike toppling over than the 17mm plug coming free. I know you said you did not want to go near the impac...
