Matt, I have the right side mounting bracket, in good condition but not the rubber.  It's yours if you want it.  

I'm heading out for a couple of hours.  I can post photos when I return.

I have several complete sets, thank you. Unfortunately non have rubber in good enough condition. I have a set of repop that might have to go on for now till I find the NOS, or a VGC OEM that I can replated.

Ok I’ve been chasing down parts, cleaning and detailing. Mostly getting up the nerve to start the lower engine assembly. It’s the real reason I’m procrastinating. Aslo I wanted most of the engine parts lined up so the lower won’t sit around unfinished to long. So I need some advice. 

First off the front pegs have been resolved. Maybe a little to anal over them but it’s behind me Two NOS in the house. 

 

Next I need advice on cam chain idlers. How much play is acceptable in the top idler? I will need axles, the (2) geared idlers (Kawasaki 12057-002), and the tensioner Assembly (Kawasaki 12048-001). Man for the size I have to say these are the most expensive engine parts.I have the rubber rectangular dampers, and the top idler dampers. I have taking a chance on used twice and bombed out twice.

I would not tolerate any noticeable play in the top tensioner.  I recently bought one OEM through Partzilla...yes...very expensive.  Many folk recommend Liska.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.
