Hi everyone, just joined as a member as my Z1b I've been working on is now on the road. Clutch slip appears to have been cured by using mineral oil. I've fitted new jets but no.3 is running lean and no.4 rich, top end is strong but an engine vibration at around 6000 rpm stops me pushing. Strangely I find the handling excellent. Look forward to any advice going. Phil

Hello and welcome. I think you need the bike on a dyno to sort your carbs out. Just a thought. Nice bike.
