Hello Q. welcome to the site. Sounds like you’ve still a fair bit to do. I am about to strip my B1, & looking forward to the challenge. Keep us informed with your progress plus plenty of pictures 😀25th September 2008 at 4:43 pm #7394dougytParticipant
Welcome to the club, there are lots of parts available residing in the members garages and lockups (all I’ll say is keep in with Philpass).
You can use z650 forks on the z750 as they are the same diameter, but 1″ longer and easier to find.
As Madmart said keep us informed and post lots of pics.25th September 2008 at 5:04 pm #7395lonesomeSpectator
I’ve got plenty of forks (some straight!) and a whole crate full of diaphragms. The forks would cost, but I can chuck yoou the carb bits 4 postage only. Lemmee kno – Steve27th September 2008 at 2:52 pm #7397AnonymousInactive
