Slow progress but …. well slow ! That’s been progress with life and the Glemseck this year.
Lot’s of incidental work going on, but nothing that constitutes real visible progress. The exhaust was due to be completed 2 moths ago, but the company making the 120 degree bends [ inside the frame ] and swaging the ends can’t get the basic stock from…[Read more]
All my engines are now late models.
The Glemseck rods additionally will be magnafluxed, stress relieved and shotpeened.
Me too …………………… but I ran out of tape !!!!!!!
Been a long year so far – gone very quickly !
Trouble with computers and life in general. Time for a bit of a ketchup.
The Metallic Silver I eventually picked has now been applied to the seat, although they neglected to tell me it was a base coat paint ! Needs lacquer. Never mind, the colour is what I wanted.
Then I’ve been agonising [?] over…[Read more]
yes that’s the plan …. however, my daughter is moving house that weekend !!!! I’ll post up
Guess you are going ?
Another good week of progress. The seat pattern making is now completed and all the fixings are glassed in. The side panel shape has been finalised and is ready to be transferred into 1.2mm or 1.5mm alloy. The top edge will be attached to the seat and that in turn will give the top edge a gentle curve …. nothing worse than a flat ally panel…[Read more]
I have contacted Ignitech who can supply the ignition module DCCDIP-2 for my project.
However, they require the following information / photos.
Sadly I do not have a complete bike or wiring system to photograph.
Can anyone help please ?
Here is their request …………

Finally found out the weirdness with my forks ! They were always suspected as not being stock items…………………. you guys told me !!!
Found that out when I came to fit my new fork brace !! My fork legs are 60mm dia at the top and not the standard 55mm ! My local machinist guy made me new 60mm clamps so at least I managed to…[Read more]
Regrettably life got in the way and slowed everything down to a virtual standstill since last October.
On again. The belly pan / fuel cell combo is nearly completed after waiting 3 months for some mods to be welded up and will soon be fettled and ready for paint. The fuel delivery system to the fuel cell has been finalised and all the relevant…[Read more]
Called to see my spring man [ collect latest order for Kays ] and enquired re: KZ750.
He’s prepared to make a minimum of 40 springs as long as all dimensions are the same apart from length.
I thought maybe 20 of each B1,B2 … that’s 10 bike sets for each model.
As per the Kays [ Progressive, but without seals ] price would be £65 / set.
Thanx everyone for the support. I will almost certainly be ordering another batch of studs.
Only 4 sets of clutch springs left.
Additionally I am now seriously looking at getting progressive fork springs made. MOST of our bikes will be suffering from “settled” / worn springs ….. that’s just the nature of the beast.
When I did the same…[Read more]
The bad [?] news …. one set of studs left. The good news ….. the manufacturers contacted me yesterday to say they’d “found” another 3 sets on the shelf !!!! They said it was probably an overrun, but have agreed to let me have them as part of the original order. That’s my 2 engines sorted then !
Hi Guys …. not Kawasaki specific, but I am clearing out most of my personal library of manuals, books, etc. Literally 100’s [ and same again for cars ]. probably close to 1500 in total.
Haynes manuals, OEM manuals, Chiltons – covers virtually the whole range of bikes. Load of History referrance books on British makers – BSA, Velocette, AJS,…[Read more]
Great to see another of our American Cousins here – Welcome. TJ
Nice work Michael …. I can’t wait for my pal to return in march so I can get on with my project !!
been away on the sick list for a couple of months – but back to it now. Finally found someone to weld my exhaust and alloy fuel cell up ! That’s the last ballache job that I can’t do myself. When my pal Brian gets back from his jaunt to the US we can get stuck in. Still trying to get hold of the Dynatek DARC-2 ignition module with built in retard.…[Read more]
Clutch springs are being posted as we speak. If anyone wants sets. please let me know.
I received a sample set of the studs last week for approval. They actually look the biz in the Black finish, so I might leave a few sets [ 25% ? ] in Black in case anyone wants a “traditional ” finish as opposed to a “Hi-Po” look.
After next week I will be…[Read more]
Clutch springs are being collected on Tuesday – please let me have your final orders.
