Re: Dual Sport

[/quote] That looks a great and enviable trip, how long would that take you? [/quote] Wouldn't mind doing your trip either but have to be on two wheels just to calm the soul. Planning on about 28 days for this trip with a few breaks over east to catch up with family and friends. Longest day is just ...

Re: Dual Sport

Must be an amazing feeling being miles away from civilisation, here we've got break down recovery, but you must plan for weeks before you set off out. Respect. We're pretty lucky these days, I always carry an Epirb and on longer trips I usually get hold of a Spot Tracker which allows others to foll...

Re: Z1000A Delkavic exhaudt

Just fitted one to my Z1000A1, Great value, perfect fitment & looks the goods. THe only thing left to tick off is how it sounds, thats still a bit down the track though.

Dual Sport

Anyone else dabble in Dual Sport bike riding ? Along with my 2 Zeds I've often had a Dual Sport bike parked somewhere nearby. I enjoy getting out and about escaping the rat race and away from the normal travellers. In my time I've had a few BMW's, a couple of KTM's and one XR600. All have been probl...

Re: Centre stand

I'm lucky enough to have a cross beam in the shed so I can use a pulley to lift the rear end up.

Re: Period Ride

Had to get a new tyre and tube for the rear, thought may as well get the shop to do it, shouldn't have bothered, not holding air. Want something done nowadays best of doing it yourself !!, Got the airbrush out to touch up two scratches from putting the engine in. That went well, feathered it in nice...

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 ??

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 ...
