Looking good!

Sad news here in Canada as well. I enquired about the available a couple years back oem Kawasaki beautiful head gaskets - not available now. It's all aftermarket from now on then... :(

Cylinder head back from machine shop. Looking fantastic :)

New guides, valve exhaust. Valves seated, replaced oil gasket, valve adjusted ++

When I compare Liska gear with oem gear, I realize that the oem gear is in excellent condition. I will install the Liska gear anyway.

Thanks for posting this. The last time I had the valve cover off my low mileage ZN, I carefully inspected the idler gear as it looked worn - didn't realize it probably looked the same way new (or reasonably similar) - which your photo nicely highlights.

The odometer shows 40.000KM and the oem idler gear is good

Cylinder head back on. Beginning to look like a great engine again :)
First I put the cam chain one (half) tooth wrong, and turned the engine around 4-5 times. For a moment I thought that now everything was wrong. Valves was bent or broken? ..:unsure: I didn’t feel any resistance so I think it’s alright. The cam chain is now correct

Finally, engine back in the frame :) It took some time, but was able to do the work alone. Beginning to look like a motorcycle again. What a relief
