Re: 4:2 exhausts....z1000 A options ??

You can fit repros if you are prepared to separate the silencer from mid section. Would only look ok if you did both sides though !! The last pic on my ebay advert shows it done on a Z1000. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232947255873?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 However - Z65...

Re: Valve seal

A lot depends on how a rebuilt engine is run in,always used cheapo oil and used the bike on the road varying load and revs within limits,seen more than one bike with glazed bores due to being run in incorrectly.

Re: Z1000 a2 rear brake piston

If using hollow pistons be sure to use 9mm thick pads non sintered,if using solid type pistons with heat sink, you should use sintered 8mm thick pads,not a lot of movement on these back discs and you can end up with brake drag and over heat issues...
