Re: Fuel injection computers ECU or whatever

I could be wrong but wasn't the B1 analogue and the B2 Digital? Agree, I wouldn't think B1 and B2 could be the same. More likely that B2 and ZX1100 are the same.

As far as I am aware a z900 or z1000 tank will fit as it's the same frame design.


I can tell you from first hand experience that this is correct.

Zephyr 1100 dimensions

Hi,

Could somebody with a 1100 Zephyr (if there is anyone) measure the fork stanchion centres, or internal spacing, please. Doesn't matter which as long as I know.

Thank you,

Re: Z1000-A1 Main Loom routing?

Funnily enough, although you'd think it went behind the frame, it doesn't.

This is a pic of an unrestored 900A4, but Z1000A1 and A2s are the same - the side panel hides it.

Re: Engine oil

I have not read about the needle bearing thing before, interesting stuff. What I can't get my head around is this. To prevent wear the needles have to roll, which requires friction. In my simple head, this would be the same friction that causes wear :?? A weird analogy would be comparing rolling lo...

Re: Engine oil

I'm not an oil expert, and don't profess to be. what I can tell you is this : Over the last 15 years, I've restored and run 6 Gs1000's, a CBX, Z1300 , both Benelli sixes, Z1a, Z1r , Guzzi Lemans 3 and a few others I cant remember. I tried Mobil 1 fully synth in nearly all of them ( bought a drum of...

Re: Engine oil

.. and yes, I appreciate that JASO did not exist when the Zeds were manufactured, and that they did run on what is by modern terms, a fairly crude oil product - but then again, they used to break down more often back then too. You will (or should) use modern brakes and tyre compounds, why not also ...
