Re: KZ1000A1 Rebuild

Now I have seen some more detailed pictures I can see the axle clearance dents appear to be there. The part numbers appear to be lazer etched. I wont tell KHI if you don't :)

Re: KZ1000A1 Rebuild

would like the stand and axle dents , side cover fixing plus oe part number stamp I would think they have tested these on a bike and found a solution to the stand and axle clearance issue. The front side cover fixing point looks different from the original which was more of a clamp affair than dire...

Re: KZ1000A1 Rebuild

I am not sure if Bazzare del la Becane get their exhaust from London-exhausts? How do they differ from originals? The Becane guys claim to make their own, but I haven't seen photos good enough from them to compare to the Dutch made London ones. I have met and know Gerrard who runs Becane fairly wel...

At current Z900 values it has to be worth £300 plus. Or a grand if good ole Frank was selling it :shock:

Re: Gearbox bearings

Has anyone found a supplier of the Z1 gearbox bearings? I’ve located SKF BL305-NR but can’t find the 3505-NR. NR Is the code for the snap ring undercut. I like your thinking. Most bearings and seals are still available from Kawasaki but I have set my self a mini mission to source OEM ones from engi...

Hi men be careful when stating names of people or companys, they could file a complaint resulting in court and they have more time and money to pay lawyers than we have! You have to keep in mind that those people often don't work alone, there are other workmen involved in their "factory"....

Re: Thoughts on new chain and sprockets for '73 Z1

Hold about a foot of chain horizontally and sideways (90 deg from normal) in mid air. It should hold fairly straight. If there is more than a slight bow the chain is worn. If you replace with endless the swing arm has to come out. Easier to use hollow or soft rivet to join and preferable to split link

Re: z1 wheel rim

Hi ogre the same thing happened to a pair of my rims! You're not alone. It's hard to find a 303 type, 18 inch Takasago rear rim , not to mention the one with the correct date code. :eek Take a look at this one: http://z-fever.de/shop/product_info.php?info=p2495_felgenring-hinten-z1-z900--1973-.html...

Re: Thoughts on new chain and sprockets for '73 Z1

I only use RK chains as they're the best by far. I have one on my KTM 950 Adventure that has done over 15000 miles in all weathers, including quite a bit of off-road and it's still not ready to be changed. They're not the cheapest but they're bloody good! The XSO Z1 racing chain gets very high rati...
