Hi all,

I am trying to find some info about some parts that my Kz900's previous owner bought from Z1enterprises.com. I was able to find the parts listed on the website but no additional information.

The parts in question are the: Rectifier / Regulator combination unit (RI10-515), the Handlebar Switchblock LH Kawasaki Z1 KZ900 (EM99-68891), and the Handlebar Switchblock RH Kawasaki Z1 KZ900 (EM99-68892).

I was wondering if anyone had any sort of a wiring schematic/installation instructions that went along with these parts? I'm trying to collect as much wiring info as I can so that I can debug/rewire my kz900.

Thanks!

In the upper right hand corner of this page you will see the word FILEBASE. Click that sucker and it will take you to the file archives. Simply select your year and then model and it should be listed in there.
Oh, and welcome to the madness!

Thanks Diamond. That filebase will certainly be useful, but unfortunately I don't think it has the wiring schematic for the specific parts I mentioned.

I'm sure the handlebar controls are wired pretty much identically to the stock ones, so for that the generic wiring layout will work, but the combined rectifier/regulator gets wired into the system quite a bit differently than when the two are seperate modules...so I am trying to find a diagram that will help me set it up correctly.

Because no brand was listed for the part on the z1enterprises website I am having trouble looking up any detailed information for the regulator.

Any clues anyone?

They don't come with any directions. ID the regulator and rectifier and with the wiring diagram you can figure out which plugs go where. I am in the process of restoring a KZ900 from what I can remember off of the top of my head: Remove both the regulator and rectifier. You will need slightly longer screws to mount the new unit under the battery tray. The main plug is color coded (green) and plugs into the center harness. The ground can go either to the block or the seat latch bolt (like the stock setup). The white wire with bullet connector plugs into the double female bullet connector with white/red stripe wire. Nothing plugs into the white plug in the center harness, but I would protect it. And there is an unused ground wire bullet connector also from the rectifier that is no longer used.

I restored my switchblocks but I have read somewhere that the reproduction parts are not plug and play exactly on the KZ900 as the color of the wires with the bullet connectors are not the same. Once again the wiring diagram will help you sort it out.
