ANZAC

It was a weird kind of day today. Normally a huge day down under was left reeling because of the 'Virus'. However an idea was generated and it spread, quicker than wildfire and was embraced by those across the nation. Instead of the normal practice of gathering at our local Cenotaph to remember thos...

Re: DELKEVIC system on z1000A

Re: Wheel Paint - What to Use?

I used Wurths Satin Black on both my MkII and A1. MkII has done 25000km and paint has performed excellently.

Speedo Drives

Two questions on the speedo drives for the Zeds. Firstly are there different sizes between spoked and mag wheels ? I have two and there seems to be avery slight size difference and one of the drive tabs will engage whereas the other one won't. I thought they would be universal. The one that was work...

Makes you wonder why so few were sold back then?.


Completely outdated back then compared to other jap. bikes such as GSX1100.

True, they were out dated from the start.


Kawasaki knew this too, hence the low production numbers.

Refurbing Badges

Has anyone here repainted their badges ? The tank badges on my A1 are ordinary to say the least and I have some other badges I'd like to refurb. There is black, white and silver. Obviously the silver is the badge draw material, so do you mask it or just wipe off the wet paint ? Is it best to do blac...

Re: Z1000 MK2 replica paint sets

The shape of all the parts was good and they fitted as expected. Thats where my satisfaction ended. The sticker joins on the pin strip...

Re: Period Ride

Well doesn't time fly when you're busy !!! I didn't realise my last past was so long ago. I have been plodding along with the A1 and can finally say it is on the road. I took it over for inspection yesterday, a pass with no issues. As always I had a Factory trained Z mechanic from back in the day go...
