Re: PHIL M ENGS full name?

Yes, the late Phil Manzano.
I had one of his big valve cylinder heads fitted to my Moto Martin Z1 in the 80's. The porting on it was sublime and worked really well.

Re: Clock top removal

Link to an article from USA, shamelessly pinched from a USA forum. :oops: https://wgcarbs.com/index.php/using-joomla/extensions/components/content-component/article-categories/90-gauge-clean :oops: Truly horrendous way of "crimping" the retaining ring with a big fat pair of pliers! :lol:

Re: REV counter

I agree Charlie, EMGO gauges can be a fair amount out. Best sprucing the old ones up. Sorting the damping, refinishing the bodies and fitting some of my gauge face kits can make it really worthwhile. Link to the gauge kits if it helps. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KAWASAKI-Z1-Z1A-Z1B-Z900-Z1000-KZ-Z1R...

I can confirm that the copies from Wemoto are indeed utter shite!

Re: Generator output z1000

I'm with Rob on this one.
Despite you fitting a new generator windings set, I'd still test for the correct AC output between each set of yellow wires.
50 - 75V AC across each pair of wires. It's a simple test that will take minutes to do, at least then you can eliminate that.

Re: Long shot... 1973 Z1 registration TJJ 90M

Jim. I totally understand remeniscing about all the good times we had on a particular bike, but at the end of the day they are just lumps of metal that have no connection with us. If you fail to track it down then maybe the best way forward would be to buy a similar model and make it like your old o...

Re: Tappets/buckets

Agree, I've had to swap buckets around before now to ensure no tight spots. Difficult to measure but 1 thou' is more than enough.

I've seen blueing on buckets where someone has increased the exhaust stud diameter and depth before! Going to far in can distort the material close by in that area.

I made one from a piece of Dural.
Cardboard template first then the real thing.
If you can find someone with a bandsaw it's a big help.

A nice H****

Picked this up last year (thanks Garry L for the tip off). 1983 CB1100RD, first owned by the late F1 driver James Hunt. 4-1 removed... had a new 100% perfect replica stainless exhaust system made for it then ceramic coated in the correct gloss black (very expensive but worth it). All bodywork rid of...
