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.

Re: Z1000J idling too fast after carb balance

That's correct. The tickover screw normally works on carb 2, where the carbs should be balanced to that carb. So, do as Rob says to drop the vacuum of carb 2, adjust carb 1 to carb 2, make 3 & 4 equal and then drop them as a pair to match carbs 1 & 2 and then do any final tweaks. It's as sim...

KTM 950 Adventure

I know it's not a Zed, but I've finally (and slightly reluctantly) decided to sell this faithful old thing. It has served me proud, has travelled through many countries and been an absolute hoot but it's time to move on (old bikes are taking over!). If anyone is interested or knows anyone who wants ...

Re: 2018 10TH GREAT YORKSHIRE RALLY

Thanks to all for a cracking weekend, in particular Sandie and Phil for your excellent organisational skills. :)
