 Kawasaki Z1-900 Restoration

Kawasaki Z1, Z/KZ900 & Z/KZ1000: Covers Z1, Z1A, Z1B, Z/KZ900 & Z/KZ1000 models 1972-1980 (Enthusiast's Restoration Manual series) Paperback – 30 Aug. 2018

by Chris Rooke (Author)

ASIN/ISBN10: 178711158X

This manual is for all owners and enthusiasts of the legendary Kawasaki Z1 900, Z/KZ900 and Z1000 built between 1972 and 1980. The book covers the complete restoration of a 1976 KZ900, from the sourcing of the bike to its completion as a fully restored machine. Every area is covered starting with advice on the different models, spares availability, and where best to source a bike to restore. Every area of the restoration is then covered in full detail including the engine, frame, gearbox, wheels, suspension and forks, brakes, ancillaries, bodywork and electrics, accompanied by hundreds of clear colour photos to illustrate the text. Additional work on a 1974 Z1A model adds complementary information. What really sets this manual apart from the everyday however, is the style in which it is written: not as some dull and distant workshop manual but in a friendly, humorous manner by an enthusiast of many years who is able to involve and entertain the reader, as well as guiding them through the restoration process. This is the third restoration guide from Chris Rooke, whose previous works have been a massive hit with mechanics, enthusiasts and restorers throughout the world.

 Kawasaki Z1

Kawasaki Z1 Paperback  Illustrated, 15 Jun. 2016

by Rod Ker (Author)

ASIN/ISBN10: 1445651289

This comprehensive book provides the full background and history of the groundbreaking Kawasaki Z1. The author describes how ‘King Zed’ became a sensation after its launch in 1972, combining incredible performance with convenience, reliability and practicality. Although pipped to the post as the first four-cylinder ‘superbike’ by the 1969 Honda CB750, Kawasaki riposted with extra power and a top speed of 135mph, knocking the opposition into second place. The fastest production motorcycle of its time, the Z1 received rave reviews in the motorcycle press. Rod Ker describes the various makeovers that the model received later in production, and how it was given a new lease of life as the fuel-injected GPZ1100. Finally superseded in 1984 by lighter and more efficient models like the all-new water-cooled GPZ900R, the Z1 had already become established as a classic and an appreciating asset.
