Re: Hello, I am new here

Not sure on your mileage Pizzaman, but in my experience the carb internals can be a little tired after 25k miles. Add ageing, hardened fuel, previous 'expert fettling' and you have a recipe for duff running. Certainly, cleaning them up and ensuring they are setup as per factory is your first step. I...

And deserved so. I'm a bit fan of restomods and his work was up there with the best.

Re: STAFFORD 2018

Great stand guys and excellent bikes on display. Nice to see Neil's bike taking pride of place on the stands.
Nice to put a few faces to names!

Been somewhat busy of late and no progress. But I will get the carbs refitted this week and I am taking the bike down to the Stafford show to display of my stand. In thee meantime, I have applied for a VJMC dating certificate, even though I have a title. I want to ensure my V5 application is accepte...

Re: 4:2 exhausts....z1000 A options ??

On first look the OS cans are noticeably thinner and don’t have the taper down at the front , I assume this is to avoid the shaping for stands etc ... the French ones seem fatter but finding it hard to get any info atm You'll find it hard to get info from the French guys. I tried about 5 times and ...

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

Re: 4:2 exhausts....z1000 A options ??

There have been a few threads on this over the last few years. Search the forum.
There is also OS Pipes, but you have to leave your bike with them for a week. More than half the cost of the French chaps.

Re: New bloke with a quandary

Chesil Your cost will be dependant upon what sort of finish you want to your bike. If you want a complete 'like new' resto, then it's going to be lots. If you're happy with 'good enough to ride' then less so. You could find a used z900/z100 tank instead of a new repro. Consider keeping the front end...

Re: KZ900 Fo Sale

My advice would be, that unless you are desperate for the money, I'd just sit tight until the Spring as that's when more people buy and prices can be higher. I my experience, there is a bit of a glut of z900s on thee market at the moment and this has pushed prices down a bit. As a result buyers have...
