Re: z1000 starting problem

Thanks Nigel. I have tried a 6v Yuasa lead acid battery on one of my bikes but it did not last either but I suspect it was a fake. Maybe best to stick to Motobatt.

Re: z1000 starting problem

I meant to do an update on this issue. I spoke to Dave at Cybike who suggested that it might just be the battery. So I connected a car battery with jump leads and it started. So bought a motobatt locally and it starts. So many thanks Dave for your help. Even though the old battery was showing 12.7 v...

Re: z1000 starting problem

It has a newish gel type battery which when charged indicates 12.8v on a meter. I won't buy the traditional lead/acid anymore as non of them last. The Clymer does not give any info on testing the starter eg what current it should be drawing. Perhaps I could try a car battery with jump leads. Thanks ...

Re: z1000 starting problem

Thanks for the replies. It has a modern regulator/rectifier fitted and I have checked the starter wiring including the solenoid. But how do I check the starter without taking it off?
Also will try wired George mod if not starter.
Thanks

The starter spins the engine over and sometimes starts when hot but mostly not. I have checked the points, plugs and coils (which have all been renewed in recent years). I have al...

Re: Z thou a2 brake prob

Hi I have a leaking 14mm master cylinder on an A2 and the cylinder has a groove from corrosion.
Do you know where I could get it bored out to 5/8 inch?
I would prefer to keep it original if possible.
