Sent a PM, I can certainly use that tank! Looks great compared to mine!
My other fuel problem is the petcock, it in horrible shape, not sure if it could be rebuilt. Replacements's seem pretty high, but there is an adapter nut to 3/8" NPT. Only question is what size? 7/8 or 15/16? any one know?
Motor is complete and ready to go. Despite having only 15K miles on the odo, turns out it already had a Weisco big bore kit installed The head was ported, and everything ran through and checked out. It was well within specs and just needed cleaned up and sorted. The stock carbs had some corrosion and issues, but the Mikini 36 flat slides were near perfect, so I'll run those. Now I just need to restore the tank, clean up the Chassis, and get it on the road!
sadly, no longer. Bought this bike on Oahu, and took a new job in Nashville TN this January. The head had been sitting in an Oahu shop for over a year. The company paid to ship all my stuff including the bike to Nashville. Once I got here, I found a great KZ builder, and things started rolling.
Good thing Eddie came through for me. On the advice of the engine builder, I sent my tank into Moyer's restoration in PA. They came back and said it was totally shot and could not be repaired. So without the help, I'd be hopeless. Z1R tanks are not easy to find, so I can not express my appreciation enough to help save my old girl!
Looking forward to seeing the bike run
yeah these parts are getting crazy to find and buy takes the fun out of playin with these old bikes.
Leon did you find a perch to replace the welded one? are they the same as a 78?
