Re: GPZ 1100 - first of many questions

I would take the cam cover off and measure it in a few positions first. They're a resilient thing that I think gets changed when it's not absolutely necessary. If it's approaching tolerance or you're doing a full rebuild anyway then fair enough, but if not it's a lot of work. Also, in lifting the ca...

Re: New GPZ1100B1 project arrived today

Relive your youth and do the mods as you suggest like you would've done back in the day - trust me, it makes an average bike into a good one! :wink: (If you hadn't guessed I'm not a rivet counter - I don't get it as nobody had a stand...

Re: Kerker Competition Baffle

Or if you want a good, crackly sound that isn't too shouty just keep the stock baffle and hoy the packing in the bin. It's the best thing you'll ever do... :wink:

Re: Lockheed Calipers

I have Grimecas on my J and they're great, particularly for the price.

(there's a job for me over wi...

Re: ex-IoM proddie race GPz550 and Yamaha RD350 YPVS F2 for sale

The GPz is now sold, and the YPVS price dropped to £4250 with the Nitron shock. I'd rather leave that in there rather than fit the standard shock as I'm suffering with wonky joints at the moment.... :roll:

Re: Champion Copper core plugs

I should have said carbs sorted and it just cane about in email conversation that Steve Smethurst reccommends using the Champion plugs. I've always used NGK but if there's something better I'll give them a try. Cheers for comments Ah, that's good then and apologies for maybe looking like I'd jumped...

Sorry, I've been up to my neck in work. This is your man, where it turns out that a certain Martin off here has relocated to Cyprus! :D
