Tap Dat Hole!
Just a run through on getting a broken bolt out and threads back in the
hole... Sorry no need for a heli-coil -- I actually had one ready then got
lucky and caught the original threads in the hole
1978 Kawasaki KZ1000 / Z1 up and running 2nd start
Idle problem turned out to be a bad plug wire on #3 - replaced all of them
and the idle cleared up -- Babygirl got some goomph - I didn't do the
original work so without taking it apart I have no way of knowing but it
definitely sounds like it has at least a cam - Main Jets were #125's and
she's a little rich cold but once she's warmed up she clears out on her own
- Dyna ignition and Dyna coils - Accell wires Spark plug heat range was
dropped from an 8 to a 9 I just gave the bike a good once over and got it
back up and running again - The intakes were actually loose and he was
running the bike like that - Guy had wire nuts on the harness instead of
bullet connectors or soldered/shrink wrapped connections - lot of corroded
wire ends I had to fix - Excellent/ Truly fun bike to work on - Everythings
clean and simple - easy to get to...
STAR CARS- Mad Max Machines @ Wasteland Weekend (Ep. 13)
In the post-apocalyptic wasteland, it's survival of the fastest! And
nothing's faster than Max's
Interceptor V8 Pursuit Special, just one of the insane cars Athena Stamos
profiled at Wasteland Weekend (an annual Burning Man-style desert weekend
for Mad Max fans).
She also discovered a kick-ass limousine gunboat, a naval Camaro festooned with a harpoon
and mermaid, a hot-rod Mercury, and a real Thunderdome. Athena even dove in
as a judge in the hugely competitive car contest. Which road warrior took
home the top prize?

KZ900 Carburetor Synchronizing Part 2
Continuation of balancing the carburetors using the Morgan CarbTune on a
KZ900. The 1973-1975 Z1 and the 1977 to 1980 KZ1000 should be similar. The
Z1's use a set screw to the side of the carburetor.
