As for instrument bulbs.
yes, they come with what look like T3 wedge sockets and 5w bulbs. I suspect the extra wattage can have an effect on the lenses due to heat. Has anyone found an LED bulb that fits? That would prevent the heat issue.
I decided on the Doremi lights.
also, John Brookes doesn’t have any gauge cushions, he sent a template, I shouldn’t have much trouble recreating some.I have some great material here to use. He got back to me right away, very helpful.
OK, here are the bulbs I use. They are GE 53. They are 3 watt. Originals are 3.4 watt Stanley. (shown on the left in the photo). Also shown are two rebuilt Z1 dash panel harnesses. Since I have two I can part with one for the cost of shipping plus a $20 donation to the KZRider site. PM me if you want it.
I have several restored bikes along with a 2006 Goldwing with a sidecar. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.
Body sets, body sets
Both Z1 Enterprises and Z1 parts.net sell body sets
Z1 Ent and Z1 parts net have a set made in Japan
Z1 parts net also has a set made in San Diego, it’s a few hundred dollars less
I’m not letting a few hundred make my decision on this already expensive project, I just wonder which set is the best
Anyone have any experience with these?
My existing side covers, tank and tail are in ok shape but the paint is horrible, I don't think I'll have any luck getting them painted here. The original tank is bashed in. I'm keeping it all of course.
Ralph at Paintworkz www.paintworkz.com/ sells paint with instructions. I used his paint for my Z1B's. You could order some and have it done at a local shop. They would deal with any dents as well. But if you're determined to go repro I would recommend Doremi bodywork. I think Z1E sells Doremi but you should ask before purchasing. Or, you could buy from Webike, here.
