Also, you also need to ensure that valve clearances and ignition timing is spot on..

More likely to be at the airbox side as the head side is a much tighter fit.

Re: 1973 Z1-NOISE IN MOTOR

Carbs set up is now crap. Loads of shut down 'run on' and erratic idling. Could this be rubbish compliance fitting rubbers? Thoughts and tips welcome. Bike is currently on a set of later 26 Mikuni Carbs. Have early 28 mm set of Mikunis and keep wondering whether it might be better with those on. Si...

Re: Marzocchi vs ohlin

Ohlins are great I have them on my ZRX.
However, I really rate YSS. They are much better than other similar priced stuff in terms of performance, build , materials and looks.

Re: Z1000 a1 exhausts?

I spoke with OS Pipes a while ago and they no longer had the jigs to made the systems. If anyone wants a set you have to leave your z1000 with them for at least a few weeks for them to make the jig up. The price they quoted me was £850.

Re: Leaking carbs

I've seen too many sets where problems have been caused by application of too much RTV.. It only needs a tiny bit to some off and get lodged somewhere to cause a problem.
So use at your own risk IMHO.
