These are mobile screenshots off the ad.

i posted it in the ebay/craigslist thread and couldn't resist it.

The seller couldn't get it to start without splashing gas on the air filter and has a known charging issue.

I made a deal with the seller that he takes care of the carb issues and I'll take care of the charging issues. I have a stator on the way and I already have a MOSFET regulator out of a Concourse ready to go.

I'm pretty eager to ride it. well since my indecent on my GPz. I'm waiting for the seller to get it back from his mechanic.

The only things i don't like about it are the bags and the 85 mph speedo.

There's another one listed locally, same color but has a Windjammer on it and the seller hasn't gotten it started.

I picked it up this morning. Totally different than my GPz. Rides really nice though. It's going to need a little massaging to get it running it's best but it starts up and runs.

I took the ugly bags off and put a mid quality stator and a regulator from a concourse in. It was a bit of a quick job with parts taken from my GPz but it will do for now.

I can get it inspected and licensed first thing.

I'll post pics when I get a minute to take some decent ones.

Lol I took the cup holder of this morning.

I rode it to work but it didn't want to start. The starter was spinning but wasn't engaging. If I rocked the bike back and forth in first it would catch. Wasn't doing this yesterday. Do I need a new starter clutch? Would the one off the KZ1000E I'm parting fit?

Then my boss came out to look at it and the right side cover was missing....

Holy Crap!

How do you guys ride with these damned windshields?

I feel like I've been baked to death. I've ridden in hotter weather in the same gear on my 750 and not been so hot! RIDE NAKED!

The windsield is coming off pronto. I might put it back on after it cools down.

If feel like I'm riding my 750 from the back and I'm in sand. Talk about a different sensation.

Mine isn't so large. It helps cut the wind and I am more relaxed. I'd like one like that for winter riding.

I do have a smaller one but I don't think it will make a difference. It's coming off. If my brother wants to put it back on when I get my 750 running again he can.

Moving right along. It looks like I'll be pulling the starter clutch off the 1000 and putting it on the 1100. Sucks that I'll have to drain the oil again.

Is it supposed to feel like a hobby horse every time I get on the throttle and/or the brakes? Not a sarcastic remark just an observation. I guess I should really get a FSM before long but I think I can get along with the 1000 for now.

Another thing. I hit reserve and I filled up but i couldn't get the tripometer to reset. This has a separate electronic trip/odo unit, is it very hard to service/repair? Speaking of which. I think the speedo is on it's last legs. It is bouncing a bit and one of the screws that holds on the face has fallen out. I passed one of those radar speed check signs this morning and it seems to be reading slow too. I'd like to get a UK spec one but they are hard to find and apparently it was the same unit that was used on the ELR that it will be a trick to find one without paying a fortune.

I did get it inspected and licensed.

Should be able to change the clutch without changing the oil.

Oh? I guess that cover is above oil level so maybe just a bit might spill when I take the cover off. Gotcha!

I changed the oil Sunday. I asked the seller what kind of oil he used and he said "What it says on the fill plug."

"Motorcycle formula?"

"Just regular motor oil."

So I drained it first thing and put in a K&N filter and fresh Rotella. I put the stator in between draining and refilling.

I've been trying to get the 1000 flywheel off for a couple of hours. It's jammed on tight! I've tried everything I can think of. I've stripped the motion pro removal tool after trying to come up with a few new tricks. I'll have to take it to work and fix it and start over next chance i get tomorrow I get to rebuild a clothes dryer.

I really hope the 1100's flywheel isn't on this tight.

Maybe, or used a bigger more powerful impact wrench than I have to torque it on than I have to torque it off. There's no way that's 95 ft-lbs of torque. My Jeep head bolts are 115 Ft-lbs and they din't give me half the argument this is. The bolt came off easy enough but the the wheel is wedged on solid.

I guess I'm going to have to buy a clutch any way.

I've done that with MAPP gas as much as I've dared.

I hope at least one has brought you lasting happiness. ;)


I got home and heated the piss out of the flywheel. I did it until I could smell magnets roasting. Nothing. So I figured this puppy is toast so I beat the crap out of it. OK, may be I was channeling some frustration. Busted magnet everywhere and it still wont budge. That thing is going to have to be cut off if it ever does come off. Good thing I'm never putting that heap back together.

So, I'm looking for a replacement starter clutch, any luck with the Caltric or Ideal units? They are at least half the price as the OEM units.
