Re: Z1R - Piggy's Revenge!

Well done Mark

I wasn't a great fan of the blue fuel hose either! I quite liked the blue Taylor leads though, I think they bring out the blue of the paintwork. Grey leads might have the opposite effect?

The old girl is looking good!

All the best

Re: Z1R - Piggy's Revenge!

Agree mirrors are too big - I don’t usually do mirrors as they spoil the lines on any bike... but will leave them be for now. As for clear lense indicators ! No thanx never liked them, don’t suit classic bikes. Just need to plumb in Oil Cooler now! If you look closely Mark, you'll see that the Z1R ...

:roll:

I just noticed that you've fitted the oil cooler too. Very neat. So neat in fact I didn't notice it until I had a second look.

Good work Mark

All the best

Re: Z1R - Piggy's Revenge!

Looks great. The idea behind the PMC extended tail, the Bulldock tail tidy, the Tarozzi rearsets, and fitting lower handlebars was to make the mighty Z1R look longer and leaner. The Bulldock screen adds to that look by lowering the overall height of the front, balancing the front and rear. The new s...

Re: Tec Shocks

Hi Gonzo I found them to be quite a bit better than the old Hagons I had on it when I bought it. The hagons were very stiffly sprung with little effective damping. The Tec shocks are also ride height adjustable so I was able to find that adding a bit of ride height, puts more weight through the fron...

Re: Gone To The Dark Side

For those who own a Z1R, how do you get it on the main stand with the stubby side extension ? I've used all my strength and couldn't get it up (ooh err missus) :eek Junk the centre stand and buy a paddock stand! Lovely example BTW. I'm missing mine but she's gone to a good home with Pigford. Fred

Z1R Bulldock Screen

Looking for a Christmas present for your lovely Z1R? Here's a Bulldock tinted screen that I imported from Japan for my Z1R but didn't get around to fitting in the end before I sold the bike to Pigford (Yes, I'm still regretting it!). I paid £136, plus import duty, VAT and postage to get it. I'm look...

Tec Shocks

Hi
I've got a pair of nearly new Tec shocks to suit Z900/ Z1000 / Z1R. I had them on my Shed before a tasty set of Ohlins tempted me. They've only done a few miles and are in very good condition.

£50 plus postage

PM me if you want them

Cheers

Fred

Re: Time to move on...?

Hi Fred when you need the place and or the money, I understand you want to sell your Z1-R...if you don't need one of the previuos things mentioned before : don't sell it, you'll regret it sooner or later. Just let me tell you a true story. In May 1983 I bought a brand new green Kawasaki Z1000ST. It...
