Hi all, apologies for the long delay, the jag was not easy to shift, plus I was on holiday.
Anyway, back again and jag sold, so in the money (well... a little after clearing my credit card) so able to move the KZ project forward again.
I moved the engine to my work and am planning to drop it in the frame to see how far I can adjust it. I have also taken off the front wheel as the tyre is flat and moving the frame on a flat front without the engine is hard enough, with the engine in it it will be impossible.
Co-incidentally I had to buy a new front tire for my KZ1000. That sits on a J 18XMT 2.15 DOT rim and the tyre size is 110/90/18. So I thought to take that tyre off and stick it on the KZ1300 rim for the time being, after reading the manual which states the front is also an 18'' wheel.
But... no. the KZ1300 wheel I have is a J 19XMT 1.85 DOT... so I guess the old KZ1000 tyre won't fit. But more importantly, why do I have a larger rim? Is that original? And what tyre size should/can I put on that, or should I get another 18'' wheel to keep the bike's 'stance' correct? The current tyre on it is a 100/90/19 - not sure how that compares to the 110/90/18...
