Thanks, I've got new carb rubbers to fit, I'll check the bolt length as well.

The Kerker went about a month ago, just to save me getting any more messages about it. :D

Sidepanels are part no. 36001-1160 and 36001-1161 and both have a lug broken off

Today so far I have cleaned and painted the battery retainer and partially reassembled the carbs.

You'll need to raise the gearing by a little bit, the speedo will read fast, you'll lose some ground clearance and the bike will steer quicker.

Right the time had come to start investigating the engine First I removed the carbs, these turned out to be Mikuni BS32s rather than the BS34s that it should have, so I bought a 2nd hand set of 34s, gave these a quick clean and fitted them, now the bike wouldn't start, so I refitted the 32s, the bik...

In about October of 1983 I discovered motorcycle magazines, one of the fir...

The bike has the wrong side panels, I think they're from a Z1000ST, I was going to get the right ones from LPM in Coventry, RobW gave me the battery retainer that mounts the right side panel yesterday so I'm ready to buy some, the side panels that are on it are genuine Kawasaki ones and will be for ...
