ENGINE, CLUTCH AND GEARBOX
STARTING AND RUNNING THE REBUILT ENGINE UNIT
FRAME AND FORKS
- Make sure that all the components are connected correctly. The electrical connectors can only be fitted one way, as the wires are colored individually.
Make sure all the control cables are adjusted correctly. Check that the fuse is in the fuse holder, try all the light switches and turn on the ignition switch. Close the choke lever to start.
- Switch on the ignition and start the engine by turning it over a few times with the kickstart or the electric starter, bearing in mind that the fuel has to work through the four carburetors.
Once the engine starts, run at a fairly brisk tick-over speed to enable the oil to work up to the camshafts and valves.
- Check the exterior of the engine for signs of oil leaks or blowing gaskets. Before taking the machine on the road for the first time, check that all nuts and bolts are tight and nothing has been omitted during the reassembling sequence.
The KZ/Z 750 models employ a conventional welded tubular steel frame of the full cradle type.
Front forks are of the hydraulic alloy-damped telescopic variety and employ air pressure as a supplementary springing medium.
Rear suspension is by pivoted rear fork, or swinging arm, on all models. In the case of the P1 and N1 versions the final drive shaft forms an integral part of the swinging arm assembly, whilst a plain welded tubular steel arrangement is fitted to all other models.
The swinging arm is supported by a pair of oil-damped coil spring suspension units which have adjustable pre-load and damping. The N1 and P1 shaft drive machines are fitted with air suspension units.
FRONT FORK LEGS: REMOVAL AND REFITTING
(ALL MODELS, EXCEPT R1 AND SHAFT DRIVE MODELS)
- Place the machine securely on its centerstand leaving adequate working space around the front wheel area. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and lift the calipers clear of the wheel.
Each caliper should be tied to the frame to hold it away from the working area and to prevent strain on the hydraulic hoses. Remove the front wheel as described in Chapter 5 Section 3.
- Remove the four bolts and lock washers which retain the front mudguard to the fork lower legs. Lift the mudguard clear, taking care to avoid damage.
If the fork legs are to be dismantled after removal, unscrew the air valve dust caps and depress the valve cores to release air pressure. Slacken the top plugs to one or two turns to make subsequent removal easier.
