Guy, if your struggling and didn't get to find all the info I sent previously I will re do something and send it over but given I did the month before last I don't want to hog the thread!
Can do any of the footer pics or if you want to go off piste got several race Ducati's but as this is a khi forum probably not or it may open some floodgates.

Back to the UK this month for Rob’s (Zed1015) Z900 powered “1 of 1” all business “tarmac terrorist”. This monster has nothing that isn’t strictly needed for the purpose of “hauling ass” including lights (it has a brake light only which is the minimum requirement for a “day time” MOT here in the UK)So from the top, heavily modified 750 Zephyr frame, ZX10R front end (with the fork internals reworked to add 32mm to the length), GSXR swing arm with a Z750 wheel, R1 callipers all round and a Suzuki rear shock. So with the chassis boxed off let’s move on to the motor which started as a Z900 which has been bored to 1015 (no surprise there) welded Z1000A crank, Z1000 MKII transmission, ported Z1 head, fast road cams, custom exhaust and 26mm carbs which Rob has bored to 29.5mm. The engine is solid mounted as it now also fills the role of being a “stressed member” in the minimalist frame. On the topic of minimalist the bike is “kick” start only as the starter and generator have been replaced with a “race” generator and 8ah battery in the tail piece (Rob did experiment with a “self generating” race ignition in place of the generator but unfortunately the “kick start” doesn’t spin the motor fast enough to allow it to start) which ended up being a very expensive piece of R&D !! the bike also runs a high level oil cooler in place of the headlight. Rob has also build a one off clutch actuator to mount on the “outrigger” in place of a sprocket cover.This bike is completely self built with some fantastic engineering work but for me some of the most impressive workmanship is the all alloy bodywork (only the best fabricators can work to a high enough standard to run their sheet-metal work raw)I would recommend taking a look at the full build thread on this link Zed 900 road racer - Updated with fixed links. - Z1OwnersClub GB

Some special work there Rob. Very nice! 
I would love to know pilot and main jet sizes and if the needle needed to be changed? Also if you need to run hotter plugs?

Thanks.
Carbs are Suzuki gs750 vm26 bored to 29.5mm.
I jetted them to stock GS1000s vm28 specs using a complete Keyster kit with needles etc,  increased the mains to 117.5 and fitted my air correctors and it ran perfect first time out.
It would probably have been fine with the original 26 mm internals but the donor carbs had parts missing .
Plugs are B9ES which i tend to run in all my motors.
Engine size is actually 1075cc ( Wiseco's) .

No problem.
When i first decided to build this it was supposed to be a budget build ( wishfull thinking ) and when i first put the motor together i did fit some Honda CB500T pistons i used to run in my Z1R that took it to 1015 but a freak cam sprocket flange failure on first start had me pulling the head to repair a valve and while i was in there chucked in a fresh 1075 Wiseco kit and some Norris cams i scored on Ebay .
It's in the thread but tucked away at the end somewhere so easily missed.
