Rear Astralite, or maybe a pair.

Does anyone have a rear Astralite squirrelled away, preferably gold and with a rim width of maybe 4.5", 17 or 18" diameter? Or, even a pair in any size?

Re: MK2 and J exhaust

Yes. My J has a pre-1980 Kerker pipe fitted and the header diameter is the same between models.
If you're using a stock exhaust the header clamps might look different but are interchangeable, with the exception that some early years used M6 if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Kz900 won’t rev over 3k

Well I’ve just set the valve timing properly, and checked the ignition timing. It’s still the same, all ok to 3 k revs then it splutters and won’t go any higher unless I back off the throttle then I can ease it up a bit :sad You did move the right cam, turn over the engine and then recheck the cam ...

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

Don't put it back to standard, it'll be awful, flexible and dull. 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. But, if they come with pads don't use them as they're a different profile to any other aftermarket pads, so without making different brackets you're stuck with the Grimeca pads which are not so good. (there's a job for me over wi...
