Re: Ignition Leads

Thanks for that, but I've been told (by a certain specialist company who sell the coils and lead sets) that the Dyna leads will not work with standard coils. Is this just bull ? From an electrical point of view that is 1st class bullshit. But they may mean that the leads diameter is too fat to fit ...

Re: Ignition Leads

Dyna leads don't fit in standard coils, I can probably find a short length of Dyna lead and send it to you if you want to try it.

Re: GPZ11 Z1000J etc. liner/std barrels needed

I assumed it was for Bob, I think MTC do 76mm pistons for 18mm gudgeon pins, I don't know if 76mm will be solve Bob's problem, if it's a 17mm gudgeon pin engine then MTC and Wiseco may do 76mm pistons, but the Wiseco ones might not fit J type engines.

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

Never heard of Cruzin Image pistons until now, but £51 for set of 3 piston kits for a Kawasaki S3 doesn't fill me with confidence The Scheuerlein sets aren't a great deal cheaper than Wiseco ones, £480 rather than £525 for a set of Unitrak piston kits, but again I hadn't heard of Scheuerlein until n...

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

Are they cast or forged pistons, some of the cheaper ones are cast which are not as strong as forged.

Doesn't it have to be an 1100 barrel to be bored to 75mm, I don't think you can go that big with 1000J barrels.

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

I don't know about 550s but 1100s run 3mm oversize pistons with no problems (I hope)

Re: Yikes!

Are hydraulics a sealed system, is there a breather hole to let air into the resovoir so you don't get a vacuum as the pads wear and the fluid goes down?

Re: Anyone used a BACKTAP before?

Not used one, but taking the head off is pretty easy and also gives you a chance to assess the state of your engine.

Re: Forks to short

If you find somewhere to make some fork extensions let me know, as I think a set might sort out the handling on my J, though I'm also considering swapping the EXUP forks with the ones in my FZ750 which are longer

Re: Forks to short

To add to the above, it also has a 17" front wheel and ground clearance is a bit lacking, especially in right hand corners.

Re: Forks to short

This thread has prompted me to investigate the front end of my J (no physical measurements just internet info as I'm attending work) My J has 89 FZR1000 EXUP RWU forks and yokes, which are probably 50mm (ish) shorter than the original forks, the yokes have a lot less offset than the originals. It ha...

Re: Forks to short

Find some longer forks is the correct answer, but that may not be an option, I think in that case I'd go for screw in fork extensions, but I'd rather have the standard forks than two piece fork stanchions.

Re: Z CLOCKS

There are no electronic speedos within the air cooled Z range. Not even the KZ1000P. Sorry. I thought the standard J speedo was electronic, with the sensor on the front wheel driven like a speedo cable, I thought the Unitrak 1100 had the same setup. Z1000J has a cable operated speedo, and I think a...
