Re: Throttle response

Does sound like ignition, my Unitrak 1170 engined J has RS34s, mine worked straight out of the box with 125 mains and no other changes. I had misfiring problems when I bought the bike and I changed the ignition to Dyna 2000 because I thought the ignition wasn't advancing from the tickover advance, f...

Buy mine - cant believe I'm saying this but I have too many bikes.


I fancy something with less strokes, and preferably cheap, KE100 is likely, but I'll need to make some room in the garage and maybe finish a project bike before getting another one.

Re: KLX 250.....

Just realised the lardy trail bike I referred to is actually called a KLR250 and a 90s KLX should be the nice enduro one. And to be fair to csx355's 78 KL, all 70s trail bikes are challenging off road compared with modern stuff, quite fancy one for trail riding though as modern enduro bikes are too ...

Re: KLX 250.....

Depends which KLX it is, there's the full enduro bike which is nice, or the rather lardy trail bike which isn't. Either way, change the oil at 1000 miles maximum if using it for trail riding and check the valve clearances at the same time. Apart from that they're exactly the same as any other dirt b...

Re: Oil drain bolt won't budge.

Take the sump off, it's pretty easy to do once you've taken the exhaust off.

Re: Kill Switch

I've wired mine so that the kill switch cuts power to the coils and the Dyna ignition, the starter buttons power is controlled by the ignition switch, this means I can turn the engine over without having to worry about earthing the ignition.

My Husqvarna 610 was wired like this as standard.

Re: J rear engine bolt

Mine had a brand new bolt in it when the engine went back in about a year ago, if you look at it from the right hand side of the bike it doesn't look particularly straight, but the bolt went straight in and everything lined up without any force. I've got the old bolt in the garage by the way, it was...

Re: Carbs or cams

Depending on what I find lurking in the top end of my J my VM29 Smoothbores might be up for sale in the new year, though I'd want quite a bit more than £250 for them (complete with inlet rubbers and recent K&N filters). I think £400 is more normal for smooth bores, that's why I snapped these on...

Re: J rear engine bolt

Have a look on the Z1100R1 parts diagram on CMSNL, the engine bolts are all on there and showing as in stock, even the front one which is usually impossible to find.

Re: J rear engine bolt

The pre J bikes only have one bolt at the front and one at the back, I used to know someone with a 1400 Turbo Nitrous one that made 236bhp, I don't think he ever had any problems with engine mountings, but I haven't spoke to him since the late 80s, so anything could have happened since then.

Re: Carbs or cams

What carbs to look out for then, z1r 28mm, 29mm smooth bores, what about some vm flatslides from a gsxr Smoothbores cost the earth, so a Decent set of 28’s maybe better? Avoid GSXR carbs just coz they’re angled off level - they can be made to work but more hassle? Bike will still run good with 26’s...

Re: Should the crankshaft rotate both ways?

I don't know the 400J specifically, but every bike I've had the crank has turned both ways.
Is the cam chain jamming when you turn it backwards?
