  1. KZ750B float bowl drains

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    wiredgeorge probably knows, but he doesn't chime in very often. You could try his WG Carbs site. see the 750 Twin carburetor guide section. or try the forums. Also, the diagrams at Partzilla might be of use. I didn't see any float bowl plugs for the 750-B1.
  2. 1968 avenger 350 ss parts

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    Partzilla has diagrams for your motorcycle, so you can get the part numbers & search EB. Reproduction fork boots from the UK >> EB item # 202797133174.
  3. 1979 KV75 carb

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    There are aftermarket carburetors on EB, but I have no idea how hard it would be to adapt one to your motorcycle. You'd need to figure out what size is needed. There may be you/tube videos. Using the part numbers from Partzilla, the spring & float valve assy are about $55T from EB. I would...
  4. 1977 Z1000

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    That motorcycle appears to be in excellent condition. An early KZ1000 won't be as valuable as the earlier Z1 900s, but it still could be worth more than a few thousand. I don't know what that 1000 is worth, but pristine, all original Z1s go for as much as $20k to $25k. A 1000 would be...
  5. Looking for paint code

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    There are no Kawasaki paint codes, but some places have been able to come up with good matches, usually from matching the paint on good or nos parts. PaintWorkz is one such place & he has provided some useful info at KZ Rider over the years. The KawaTriple dot com site has a clickable chart...
  6. 1974 Kawasaki 90CC battery

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    batterystuff dot com is another place. Kawasaki dot com & Partzilla have parts diagrams. Partzilla is easier to use. Yuasa batteries are usually listed for Kawasaki motorcycles, so you can get the part number & try the Yuasa site. other places should recognize the number.
  7. 1986 Z550 Crank Non Start

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    His 86 GT550 probably has a pulsing coil rotor with no moving parts, instead of a mechanical timing advancer.
  8. 1986 Z550 Crank Non Start

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    I would install the airbox with stock air filter. Without that, it's going to be lean. USA models were jetted lean from the factory for EPA regs, so without the air filter it's going to be more so. Plus the airbox provides a stable air intake environment which can be critical for CV...
  9. 1986 Z550 Crank Non Start

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    He means when he pushes the start button & the starter motor turns, the voltage drops to about 10 VDC. A voltage drop when cranking would be normal & I think a drop to about 10+ VDC would be expected under load from a starter motor. I would use a digital multimeter to see exactly what the...
  10. Kawasaki KZ1000 Police Pursuit Lights

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    Howdy. From a Police bike wiring diagram the only thing I'm seeing is a relay on the Pursuit circuit. In the chassis-electrical equipment parts diagram at Partzilla there is a relay & relay harness.
  11. Not starting any ideas?

    TERYX RUV Forum
    ... when I start it I get a single-click... Try checking the starter solenoid >> I would connect a multimeter to the load side, then push the start button to see if there's power going to the starter. Also, make sure the battery is good & fully charged. I would charge it with a motorcycle...
  12. Spark plug for Kv100

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    I have no idea what year a KV100 would be. The diagrams at Kawasaki dot com or Partzilla may list the spark plug. Also, there might be an informational decal on the motorcycle somewhere with tuneup info. under the seat or behind a side cover. or maybe an OM is hidden somewhere. ....
  13. Carburetor rebuild kit

    The Mechanics Corner
    Are those carburetors stock? Try Z1Enterprises dot com. Sometimes it's best just to replace the needed parts, usually gaskets, o-rings & rubber bits. JBM Industries might have the diaphragm rubbers for the vacuum slide valves. ...
  14. Fuel petcock for KZ650D 81-model

    The Mechanics Corner
    You should verify the bolt-hole spacing center-to-center of the replacement petcock. I'm pretty sure the police bike is 44mm, though. Also, Z1Enterprises dot com sells an aftermarket Suzuki vacuum petcock that's 44mm. ...
  15. 1977 KZ400 Special Battery Box Mounting

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    Kawasaki dot com & Partzilla have exploded diagrams. Partzilla is easier to use. The Frame/Frame-fittings diagram shows the battery box & several other battery box mounting plates. The parts in the diagrams are typically oriented the way they'd be on the motorcycle. Something I usually do is...
  16. That I can't wait for a later year retro

    What I learned today
    There's a near mint condition ZR1100 Zephyr listed on EB right now. kind of NOS I guess. It's currently at $8300 (reserve not met). Apparently, it had been stored inside a Kaw dealer under a cloth cover. From the description: Up for auction today is this (basically) brand NEW 1993 Kawasaki...
  17. where to find carburetor cap / covers?

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    There's a carburetor boot for the 76 KE100 that seems to be still available as Partzilla has a photo of it. If so, then the Kawasaki dealer should be able to get it as well. The cross-reference at partzilla indicates that it fits a number of KE100, KD100 & KH100 models and others. 14038-035...
  18. Oil and temp warning lights on zl400

    Kawasaki Cruisers
    Edit to reply above: just to clarify, when I say starting the engine actuates the oil pressure switch, what I mean is that oil pressure from the running engine operates the oil pressure switch. ...
  19. Kz1000p

    Vintage Motorcyle Info
    Howdy. Partzilla has parts diagrams, so you could get the part numbers & try searching eebbaayy. I did not see a siren but there are a couple of NOS siren wire harnesses listed. If nothing else is available, you just have to keep checking every week or two. EB search terms. KZ1000 Police...
  20. Oil and temp warning lights on zl400

    Kawasaki Cruisers
    Do you have the owner's manual for the motorcycle? Sometimes it can be kind of hidden on the motorcycle somewhere. The OM should describe how the various warning lights function. If the ZL400 is very old, you may need to clean up some electrical connections. Typically, the oil warning light...
