Motorcycle How To's - Springs, Cams, Valves - Top End Kawasaki ZRX1100s
After spending several hours skimming through YouTube and several
motorcycle forums, I realized no one has posted a step by step video on
pulling the Kawasaki ZRX head, or even any UJM’s.
So I decided to make a beginners’ guide for pulling the head in order to
show fellow riders how to do it, and hopefully give them the confidence to
do it themselves. Some of this maybe over explained, but I want to make
sure I had as much info as possible to guide you through it.
I am not a mechanic by any means, so please bear with me, as this is solely
intended to help those who have not done it before, or to serve as a
reference for those who may have forgotten exactly which steps to follow
If you are looking to do the ZX11 cams and double springs for your zrx1100,
this is the video you were looking for.
In this video I will show you how to:
Drain the Coolant
Remove the Valve Cover, Cams, and Head.
Clean the disassembled head
Remove/Replace and Reinstall Cams, Valve Springs, Valves, Spring Seats, &
Valve clearance check and adjustment
And finally put it all back together.
I know many people who have done this before, or even professionally will
have different options or opinions to how it should be done, but this
should at least give you the no how to do it yourself and decide how to
adjust your ways as needed.
Feel free to ask questions in the comment section (or on the above posted
forum) and I will try to help you out.
