Re: Yet Another Carb Question

Yup totally agree, just wondered if the cv's off the gsx would be a better starting point or the cv's from the zed. Hopefully a set of smoothbore's may turn up meantime at the right price :) CV carbs are always tricky to setup without the original airbox, if you were prepared to pay an expert and f...

Re: Yet Another Carb Question

Probably going to be harder to set up the CV carbs IMHO. But if that's all you've got them you have nothing to lose but your patience if you give them a try.

Re: KZ900 Fo Sale

Phil Were the carbs vapour blasted by chance? I've had quite a few sets through my hands that are scrap after the owner has paid a lot of money to have then blasted. And plenty of examples where they have not been refurbished using new parts (as claimed) or worse, manged or damaged/bodged... I've ha...

Re: STAFFORD 2018

I'm thinking of maybe putting my z900 on my stand which is one of the inside halls. As I have never had a stand at the event before, what's the security like when the event is closed? i.e is it safe to leave the bike on my stand over night?
Cheers

Also, it has just started to leak a bit of oil from the generator grommet when on the side stand so I'll need to sort that too. Will ...

Re: KZ900 Fo Sale

Phil,

Sorry to hear you are selling, do you have any photos.

No reason why it should run badly with correctly setup 28mm carbs though. Are you running through the original airbox, or pod filters?

Re: Airbox identification

Later model z1000 (like MK2) as the USA models had the extra gubbins to suck air from the airbox into the exhaust manifold for emissions.
