Re: Rear wheel spacers [again]

You're a legend thats exactly what I need RGH. You wouldn't have measured the one on the sprocket side by any chance would have you ??

My one is still straight so should be good once I machine it down.

Re: Rear wheel spacers [again]

I'm having similar issues with going from spoke to cast. Looking at the centre spacer ( # 42010-039 ) the space looks to be around 70mm. Hard to see with a rule and shoddy eyes, The spacer I have is 86mm. I know the main reason of the spacer is to stop the bearings being crushed so would like to mil...

Z1000A1 Front Master Cyclinder

I'm putting Ace bars on my A1 rebuild ( that's taken forever to do because the weather is real shite down hgre ). With that in mind I'm not to keen on using the original Kawa master cylinder because of the way it projects out so far towards the tacho. What would be a easy and suitable retro fit one ...

Pick Me Up for those Up There

I hear you guys are having your fair share of chilly weather up there. No way could I ever fathom living in that sort of environment, even in our absolute worst weather it would pale into insignificance to what you guys suffer so thought I would give you a little light at the end of the tunnel as it...

Re: Period Ride

Bloody hell I didn't realise how long its been, definitely not a rush job this one. Finally have the motor totally rebuilt, just need to get some stainless bolts for covers etc to totally finish it. Pretty standard with the motor as she ran well to begin with, just needed a clean, broken fins repair...

Re: What have I done wrong

Float height adjusted the measurement method, but if the float height were the issue then regardless if the chokes on or off it would run out of fuel wouldn't it ? All other settings were same as before i stripped them.
The key here is it runs with full choke, but not at all with no choke.
