z1000 – S5 — Some TLC

Even though the bike was beautiful there is always somethings you want to do….

Started with a stainless bolt kit from Oz at Zedparts and got them swapped very quickly.

Fixed an issue with the bolt on the end of the crank coming undone, fixed that with some locktite.

Had some issues with the fuelling on the bike, get running on 1 & 3 and some sometimes 4 would wake up….took some advice as was advised I need bigger carbs for the 1105 engine.

Sourced some MIKUNI VM29 29mm smoothbores and will get them fitted by Cradley Kawasaki as they stole the Spirit for an open weekend in March 2013.
