Wayne, I did say it would smoke and I advised you it would need a rebore. If you remember number 2 cylinder had damage to bore from the metal F.O.D incident, also number 1 cylinder had a bad score along the length of the bore and number 4 cylinder had a bad rust/ water stain mark aswell. You need to...

sprockets

15t front x 35t rear sprocket on Z1, Z1A and Z1B's, this give a final drive ratio of 2.333. 15t x 33t sprockets on Z900 and Z1000, this gives a final drive ratio of 2.200. 18t x 40t sprockets in 530 chain would give a final drive ratio of 2.222 which is the same as your Z1000 setup. A smaller back s...

valves

I have a valve refacing machine if your valves need a reface, I also have the 3 angles of valve seat cutters if your cylinder head needs the seats re-cut, but before doing anything I would check the valve guides for any play and also I'd check the valve stem diameters for any possible wear, there's ...

cylinder heads

Nothing to add to what zed1015 has posted, obviously been their and done it before, but with a bit of machining work it not hard to fit any of these heads, you've just got to decide what you want to do with the motor. Buzzard.

First off I would'nt go as big as 1460cc, not alot of base gasket left, 1325cc .@ 10.5CR is perfect, cams selection, Andrews 3X, 0.418 lift good duration and you can still use shim on top, pit stop performance are now making these again, PSP 3X I think.GPZ1100 cylinder head is a must as you can go m...

cylinder head

LondonZ1, what I don't get is you had your cylinder head refurbished by BLR Engineering, New guides, seat recut, 3 angles I presume as BLR use Serdi machines to do cylinder heads, so why did the cylinder head needed to be done again by Debben with a "more modern seat cut" what happened the...

torque arm

Don't need a torque arm, the bracket arm has a slot machined into it and that engages with a spigot on the swinging arm which stops it from rotating when brake is applied. See first picture with wheel in it. Buzzard.

In the picture of all the caps connected with the busbars are the two vertical banks of caps connected the right way to the horizontal banks of caps, or am I missing something here? Buzzard.

cams

I looked at those but there was no info so I didn't both, you've had a right result there. Very similar to Andrews 3X cams, a good size cam and you can still run shim on top. Buzzard.
