Re: big bores

I'd go for a Wossner 1075cc piston kit, very good quality semi slippers pistons, lighter, gudgeon pins are shorter and lighter, a very good piece of kit. Done a couple of engine builds this year using these pistons, customer well pleased. Buzzard@ the buzzworkz.

Re: Andrews cams don't fit

Are you sure your engine builder is clued up on Zed engines, one mistake and you can bend valves, just be careful. I think 2x cams are 0.360" lift which is not that radical. Probably as Rob says cylinder head needs to be machined to allow lobes to clear. Buzzard@thebuzzworkz.

Re: More O.C.D. - Vesrah v Athena valve seals ?

Vesrah, Athena or Viton valve guide seals you get in the full gasket sets. Do not waste your money and time on any of these, use genuine Kawasaki seals every time. I am not going to use any of these in the cylinder heads I do, I will only be using Kawasaki seals it's not worth the hassle. There is s...

Re: Z1000a1 valves and part numbers

Olly, a magnet is attracted to the Cast iron guides not the phosphorus bronze you said I quoted. Hope to get your cylinder head back from Vapour blasters next week. Buzzard.

Re: Z1000a1 valves and part numbers

Olly, what I said was stainless steel valves are not compatible with the cast iron guides you have in a Z1000 head , the head you sent me and the two types of valves ( standard Kawasaki and stainless valves) gives you two options. If you want to fit the stainless steel valves in the z1000 head you w...

Re: Z1a Restoration

Ref crack between exhaust seat and plug thread. This is a thing that occurs quite often and I've seen it In lots of heads in the past nothing to worry about. I reckon half the heads ive done have the odd crack in them. Buzzard@ thebuzzworkz.
