Re: For Sale: Kawasaki mag wheels

That's a 2.15" rear so they're off a J.
I'm afraid to say it but you pretty-much can't even give them away....

Hi Rob,

Leave it with me and I'll have a look to see what I have, hopefully tomorrow.

Re: Later model coil fitting..

You *should* be ok. A J (same coils as your GPz) has a primary coil resistance of 1.8-2.8 ohms, a ZZR 2.3-3.5 ohms. A lot of people (including me) use green 3 ohm Dyna coils.
I'd measure the primary resistance and as long as they're pretty close to 3 ohms you'll be ok.

Re: Thoughts on new chain and sprockets for '73 Z1

I only use RK chains as they're the best by far. I have one on my KTM 950 Adventure that has done over 15000 miles in all weathers, including quite a bit of off-road and it's still not ready to be changed. They're not the cheapest but they're bloody good!

Re: Harris Build

Speak to Dave at Saisei (Zedhead on here) for your cam bearings and any other consumables (gaskets etc.), he'll see you right. The snapped bolt can be drilled out. Assuming that Timeserts have been fitted, what has stripped - the internal thread or has the sert pulled out of the head? Can an insert ...

Re: Harris Build

That sounds very salvageable and not to be unexpected of a bike that age that's had previous work done.
The insert and bolt issues can easily be resolved, and the cam bearings do wear and aren't that expensive - the pattern ones are fine.
