Also picked up a set of Renthal bars for her today too. Decided the black would just look too good!

On another topic. Is anyone able to take a photo of the wiring on the left and right side of the box. All the wiring that is behind the side covers, rectifier etc. Close up ones would be great.

hii larriken i think you have done a good job ,i have a z1r but its away for the winter but i found tony sculpher book on z1r helpfulif i can say when you come to feed the main wire harness to either side it should pass on the front side of the frame not behind it as most do ,it just wont fit between the air box when assembled its looks wrong but there are cut outs in the side panels to allow it good luck david

Thanks David, appreciate the feedback. I have Tony's book too. I use it all the time. Funnily enough Tony came from the town I live in. I used to ride motocross with his brother!

Okay guys, a proper update for you. I know it's been a real slow burner over the last year but now that I have the motor finished I have renewed vigour for the Z1R! Now that the motor is in the frame I am working through figuring out the last remaining parts that I don't have (the perils of building a bike from a frame!) Wiring is my next major to tackle. Oh and getting the motor to run! Boxes have been arriving furiously from Japan and the USA so I have a plenty to do over the Christmas holidays!

Opened up the boxes and digging through the bits I need. Found a good battery box in Japan which was a total bonus. I only need the top bits on each side but I have been searching for them for ages so well stoked. Dropping them off to the powder coaters today. Also scored a clutch and front brake perch and levers, and finally a throttle tube. Lots and lots of little bits, and still lots to go lol!

Couldn't resist a quick spin round the block. Probably should have put my helmet on. Safety first.

If you are in New Zealand and need polishing done, hit up Wanganui Electroplaters! Awesome job, great rates, and beats me getting covered in shit. Shiny shit is great!!

I got so excited I had to hang a few bits of the motor to make me happy lol.



Not sure on this one. Might go with the DOHC original style. Didn't get that one polished though!

You also may have noticed a really, really, ugly looking oil pressure gauge fitted in the above photos. I have bought a gauge and fittings a while back and thought it would be a good time to fit it it. I promptly broke it and made up a fitting from bits I had in the shed. Looks totally shit so I will have to go to version 3 :)


Version 2, not a pretty looking thing at all.

You'll remember that I have been pondering the best way to lay down the rear shocks a little. Finally just bought a PMC laydown bracket. It's for early Zeds not the Z1R but by my reckoning it looked like it would fit. Well, it didn't but I am still happy as cos it positions the shocks exactly where I want them! I have taken the brackets off down to my mate the engineer to see get him to draw a new set and CNC them for me. Just need to lengthen the rear bolt mount as the swingarm I have has the mount hole further back. I am also going to get the new bracket to space the shock out another 4mm from the bike so that I can clear the shock on the rear brake caliper stay arm. All going well I'll have that one sorted some time in the new year.
