Re: z1,a,b and a4 swing arms all the same?

basically they are the same .... there is some cosmetic difference to the earlier arms up to 75 as they have a narrower crinkled look to the arm above the chain adjuster .........and of course the date code for the purists

Re: Z1R Carbs

the early Z1 carbs have a lot of differences but the main one is the flat tops on the early carbs and the much higher " domed " tops on the z1000 / Z1R ....... they wouldn't look right really
