Excellent article. Thanks for sharing.

My take on maintenance for old bikes is to tear into it when first purchased and catch everything up. It's frustrating to read so many threads from guys that don't do anything until their bike breaks down.

Very interesting article. My Dad was an aircraft mechanic during WW2. His background for the job was growing up on a farm. Maybe that's why things like this occurred!




I ride Z1's. I have a couple of '75's, plus an '80 KZ1000LTD. My lovely Sweetums rids a 1981 KZ550.
