I have three but need one more preferably a # 2. There's none on eBay just junk heads without them or trash ones with them for $250 and more. Early KZ1000 and J models will work.

Are you looking for the entire head or just the cam bearing cap? I may have a cap if that's all you need.
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.

Just the #2 cap. I was hoping someone had a junk head and wouldn't mind parting with one.
Thanks

I have a junk head off a MK2 engine. Pretty sure I have the caps. Will check and get back later today.

I have it. Do you want the bolts and bearings as well or just the cap? PM your address and I can have it mailed out today or Monday at the latest.

No disrespect Steve but that head looks horrable. What are you going to do with it?

Jeff said he could mig weld it with his wire feed. I just have to get a refill of argon because he's out. He used a lot on my case and swing arm mod. It's the least I could do being he isn't charging me. Just checked and it's $89 for an exchange and they don't have one until next week, maybe. All I would have to do is shapet it after he lays a bead in the damaged part. After looking at those junk heads for sale on eBay mine's not so bad. Cleaning it up now.
