Re: Z1R - Piggy's Revenge!

It was worth a try... :wink:
It's a lovely thing though Piggy! I have to say that because I'm a (relative) youth I'm much more a fan of square Zeds (J/Z1R/mk2) and that one is just splendid! :)

Re: J Tank Width

Does your Euro tank have the same rear mounting lug as your American spec round tank ? Just wondering if the Euro tank is off a 750 ? I wondered that at first, but no, the rest of the mountings are identical. It's been confirmed by the US KZ1000J Facemuck chaps that "most" of the Euro tan...

Re: J Tank Width

I wish I knew! Why would Kawasaki do this, I wonder? The only bike that the round tank fits is the J, so why not make it the same fitting as the square tank?!?

Re: J Tank Width

I'd be interested to know how this turns out. I have a US round tank J, and I'd assumed that the frames were the same as Euro spec. I've just acquired a square GPZ tank as a spare, but haven't offered it up to the frame yet and so now wondering whether it'll fit ! I now have a simple answer to that...

Why thank you. I've just tried him but he's only had one in the last 15 years....
It's looking like there is a difference between the two tanks, but I'm just about to check to see if a very simple mod would allow me to swap between tanks. Watch this space..... :wink:

Re: J Tank Width

i think the rubbers fit snugly against the frame so chopping down the mounting stubs will not make any difference unless you reduce the thickness of the mounting rubbers. have you tried john browse for a us type tank ? Now that explains a lot as my rubbers stand off the (US) frame. I'm going to see...

J Tank Width

Morning all, I have just picked up a Euro square tank for my US-spec '81 J as a temporary replacement until I decide what to do about the leaks on my round tank, but I've found a little issue. All fittings look to be correct on the new tank, but the spacing between the locating cups at the front of ...

Re: '81 Lawson rep round tank decals

Thank you very much Rick, that's a great help. :)
I'll take your measurements and will compare them to my panels to make sure. I'll let you know the outcome out of interest.

The other option of course is that you decide to sell me your bodywork! :wink:

Re: '81 Lawson rep round tank decals

I bought this from Kipkawa not long before they stopped trading. Do you just want the basic measurements of the decals? (width, position, etc) Just the dimensions would be perfect, thank you! I was sent the photo below from one of our Dutch colleagues on the KZ1000J Facemuck site, where it all help...

'81 Lawson rep round tank decals

Morning all,

Would anyone have the dimensions or even a template for the '81 round tank J Lawson decals? Since Kipkawa closed their doors I can't find a supplier, though Image Works are being very helpful.

Any assistance would be gratefully received. :)

Cheers,
Coose
