Re: APE manual camchain tensioner adjustment.

Pop the head off if you're worried, it doesn't take very long to do.
What ignition system are you running, as your problem sounded more ignition related to me.

Re: APE manual camchain tensioner adjustment.

That looks about right, and your cam chain looks a lot less worn than mine, if I remember I'll check the manual tonight

Re: APE manual camchain tensioner adjustment.

I think you'll be okay, I've turned mine over by hand with it a tooth out and nothing hit anything.
When mine misfired at over 3000rpm it was the ignition igniter that caused the problem.

Re: APE manual camchain tensioner adjustment.

Too tight will cause more damage than a little slack, so it's good you can still here it rattle occasionally.
So long as the cam chain isn't slopping about it'll be fine.

Re: z1 900 starting probs

Sounds like the right hand handlebar switch is wired wrong and you've only got voltage going to the ignition when the starter button is pressed, could also be a poor connection within the switch.

Re: Fuel tap.

Another thought, could you continue to use the vacuum tap, but then have a second on/off tap in between the vacuum tap and the carbs, these taps are available cheaply on Amazon or EBay

Re: Fuel tap.

On the subject of non vacuum taps, early GSXR750s have non vacuum taps and flow enough fuel for 100bhp.
It musn't be from a US market one though, as they have vacuum taps.

Re: Fuel tap.

My Z1000J tap did the same as your CSR one, replaced it with a Pingle, which has given me a load more problems.

Re: Cost of paint

Sounds about right, similar to what I was quoted for a Z1100R paint scheme

Re: Valve clearances

Unusual for clearances to open up, possible causes 1. You didn't measure them properly 2. The valve isn't fully closing 3. You've had sudden wear on the part of the camshaft that shouldn't touch anything 4. The cams aren't in properly 5. Your buckets have suddenly worn 6. Your shims have suddenly wo...

Re: G**R Slabbie bits wanted

I've got a manual cam chain tensioner for a 750 that I bought 25 years ago and never used - found it in an old tool box

Re: GPZ1100 UNITRACK CAMS.

I haven't got a set but mine have got R2 on one cam and R3 on the other, the exhaust and inlet cams are identical by the way.
