Re: Z1100r my tale of woe

probably cost me more than the bikes value. but its worth it to me as i wanted one since they were released. i only had to wait 30yrs.
if the club wants to use it for a display stand, no problem.

Re: Restoring Z1100R Carbs.

Your biggest headache is going to be getting genuine internal parts. repro parts are available as a kit from Keyster, Vapourworx are carb resto experts and can supply the kits. Ben there is also a goldmine of information.
contact details are in trusted traders.

Re: Carb Cleaner....

An old boy down the road from me made his own cleaning bath with a big placcy storage box and 2 orbital sanders strapped onto the sides. his cleaning solution is hot water and fairy.
The results are good for a heath robinson contraption made from old junk off e-bay.
