Re: vm28ss

The ones fitted seem to be quite a way down the passage way so I'm wondering of not original or correct. However, they came off a running bike which had just been setup on the dyno...

Mark,

Re: Z1000A1 carb setup

Sounds like you've tried most things. Although it shouldn't make a difference, can you try it with the snorkel and a standard air filter? I use Keyster kits in all my rebuilds and never had an issue. However, you say the needles are rough - can you post of PM me a photo. Also, make sure you have a z...

no, I opened the clocks, cleaned them, gave them a respray and closed them again, as I allways do.

Great work as ever Philippe.
We could do with a detailed 'how to' for getting the clocks opened and resealed neatly!

Re: Engine restoration

Excellent results Garry.
Point of note: Mothers is not just an abrasive paste (like Solvol) it's got some chemicals in it which help to eat away the grime. So you can get good results without having to resort to wire wool as well.

Re: Engine restoration

I recommend giving it a good de-grease with something like Jizer and then a good soapy wash. The buy some 'Mothers' and use a toothbrush and/or small paint brush with short bristles to rub it into the metal. Do it in 3 inch square blocks. Leave it on for 10 minutes, the brush it again and then use a...

Measuring everything up as per factory manual will show up any issues. and anything major will usually be apparent without measuring in my experience.

keep the KONI shocks on your ST ! These are far better than the original ones.

Can only agree with Philippe, I put Koni 'dial a rides' on my ST. They are vastly superior to the originals and look right.

It's amazing what polishing up an old bike can do to make it look tons better. A great start I'd say.

Re: 1972 Z1 Recommission / Rebuild - Vin # Z1F-01173

A VERY nice find. :D Be careful with T-Cut as it can be a little harsh on original paint. Any decent car polish/Wax will contain enough 'Cut' to restore the original finish without going through the steel tubing. Over 35 years ago I used to valet cars. We used to use a 50/50 mix of T-Cut and a liqu...
