Re: Z1/A Frame

Phil & Buzzard,
I'm very sorry but the owner , from Norway you know who I mean,
has decided at 11th hour he wants to keep it.

Regards Mike

Re: Voltage drop at coils

Re Dyna-S.
Mark I read somewhere here that there were a batch
of these supplied with the pickups mounted on the
wrong side of the ally disc. Solution was to mount the
pickups on the flip side then you'll have plenty of
adjustment.

Re: Champion Copper core plugs

I should have said carbs sorted and it just cane about
in email conversation that Steve Smethurst
reccommends using the Champion plugs. I've always used
NGK but if there's something better I'll give them a try.

Cheers for comments

Champion Copper core plugs

Just been discussing carb issues with Steve
Smethurst and he suggested I use Champion
copper core plugs. Does anyone know the equivalent
to NGKB8ES?

Re: Z1 Carb Setup:- Guru needed

Thanks Philippe,
I've gone through the process 3 times now
and found nothing wrong. I will read that article just in case I've
missed something.
Did a leakdown test today and all four cylinders
are less than 5% which is better than new.

Z1 Carb Setup:- Guru needed

Does anyone know of a carb expert? Try as I might
even with some vac test kit from Chris I can't get
either of the two sets I've restored working
properly. I cannot find anything wrong at all.
Losing the will to live.

Re: Fresh build Z1A Smoking- SEP?

I'm getting old... Measured bores & pistons and SEP work spot on, excellent in fact. Rings over gapped so NOS set on order I forgot to check this as I gave the whole lot to SEP with rings fitted, not sure who made the rings I'd fitted previously but schoolboy error. Should be firing the old girl...

Fresh build Z1A Smoking- SEP?

Anyone recently used SEP to rebore their barrels
and had problems?
They made and installed new liners bored to match NOS
pistons I sent. New rings fitted etc and fired
the old girl up yeterday, smoked like a bugger
