Re: Z1000j frame engine numbers

They're both Z1000J then, not that this means a lot, my J crankcases are full of Unitrak parts

Re: Z1000j frame engine numbers

They shouldn't match, but both should start with the same prefix, I can't remember the prefixs, but they're available on Z-Powers site.

Re: Dyna S Ignition

The only real benefit of the Dyna 2000 is the rev limiter (in case you miss a gear), I only ever use ignition curve no.4 on my bike, I tried 5 but this gave it a flat spot in the mid range, maybe I'll get a programming lead and program my own curve for it, but talking to Chris Tombleson he said 36 d...

Re: Wanted: FZR1000 Genesis 3 spoke front wheel

Re: New Oil Cooler Kit - hose routing ?

I've run mine over the top with no problems, when I bought the bike they ran round the side, one hose ran very close to the exhaust and probably heated the oil up, the bike certainly runs a lot cooler now, only problem you might have is a lack of space if you've still got the standard wiring loom. B...

Re: 'New' KH250...

A mate had a KH like this one, same colour etc, when I had a 250LC, my memory of the KH was that it was slow and poor handling.

Re: Running rufff

Re: Tank issues

My J came with a tank that had some sort of sealant in it, the petrol gradually dissolved it, staining the petrol brown, this then blocked the pilot jets, just to add insult the tank leaks. I've got another tank now which doesn't leak or again the petrol. So be careful how you seal it. I'm not sure ...
