Re: Greetings from Mallorca.

The engines are pretty bomb proof and I don’t recall hearing about anyone ever having a catastrophic cam chain failure... they’ll rattle for a good while. If the bike looks good use the lack of service history as a bargaining tool, buy it and put the cam chain on the to do list.

Re: Z1000 a1 alloy wheels

Weird... :shock: Back to the OP - the best ones appear to be the 79-80 A3 A3A A4 which have a 19” front and are listed as a fitment for A1 and A2. Z1R rear seems to be the same. Z1R front will fit but will be smaller. Some 650s and others are the same too - dig through Partzilla to find compatibilit...

Re: Z1000 a1 alloy wheels

Maybe I’m wrong and the thing came a complete wheel then it was forty years ago... the same rear wheel seems common to the 650s and Z1R and is also listed for the A1...

Well all I know is these went on here in 1979 or early 1980 and it’s a 19” front it’s still out in the garage. This pic is 1980.

Re: Z1000 a1 alloy wheels

Mine A1 had cast wheels put on it about 1980. My brother worked in the local Kawasaki centre at the time and they were flogging them really cheap so it was cheaper to put them in than replace the spoked rear which had already started to rot.... they came from Kawasaki as bare wheels and didn’t need ...
