Zuki's C10 rehab.
« on: June 28, 2014, 02:53:19 am »
Moving this from intro to zuki's C10 rehab thread.
Let's start I got the gas cap opened by
pulling the gauge sending unit and a long rod
to the latch to work it with Eric playing with the key
tapping on it with a light hammer.
After a swim in the sonic cleaner lock work's great.

On to the carb's. as they came off.

Bowl's looked like this when I opened the carb's.

Now when you put the gas cap back on, throw that last screw (that is hidden by the cap) over your shoulder!

That's the plan I'm leaving it out till I know the lock work's right.

Steve I do small engine/lawn and garden equipment for a living
and the sonic cleaner is the best tool we ever got for the shop.
It's a small unit not big enough for a full rack of four carb's
but I can stick one end of a rack in it and get 2 3/4 carb's in it
then flip the rack and do the other end.

 Carb's got them back together and fire'd right up
idle'd nice and then number four go's to flooding needle ain't sealing..

Seeing as I just cleaned the carb's with no new part's so jump on
the hot rod and run to the local Kaw. dealer to see if they have needle's.
After tellin the kid who made this bike he look's it up they have four on the shelf at $40.00 each.
I told  him he's out of his f'n mind.

I do comm. lawn and garden equipment for a living and we're
a Kawasaki small engine dealer at work but I can get NO motorcycle
part's through work.
Thinking I've seen these needle's at work I plugged the m/c
part number in to our part's computer and it came up a good number.
Seem's it's a cross over part Kaw use's in a lot of diff. type motor's.
My cost $7.00 each and not the $40.00 each the stealership want's.

Also I think I found why John was thinking there's a head gasket issue
T-stat housing o-ring where it go's on the water tube was leaking and would
drip on the little tab on the head gasket and run across the back of the head.
Fixed that and have ran it 20 min. or so idling and the gauge come's up
to the 1/2 way point but didn't get hot enough to turn the fan on.
I've tested the fan and it work's like it should.

So got to spent some time with the black bike tonight.
Turned out still had some dirty pilot jet's so revisted the carb's
and now it idle's right, start's with a touch of the button.

Now that it will set and idle I'm thinking about the head gasket
I was told it need's so I let it set and idle (had a fan blowin at it.) watch the gauge it go's 1/2 way up
and stayed there fan cycle'd on and off and never got any hotter after 45 min.
Safe to say this motor don't need a head gasket.

Best part I rode it tonight so now worth spending time and money on.

Zuki,
I think you'll like the C10.  welcome.  and that's a cool looking KZ.  not particularly my cup of tea, but you did a good looking job on the modifications.

That is a sweet looking KZ.  My buddy used to have one, said he could get the front end up in third with him and his wife on it.

One more step done on the paper's.

When Buddy (yes real name) ran the tag's he ran the
guy's name also and got me two number's
one's a dead cell and the other is a land line.

I've called the good # a few time's and tonight a lady answer's
I ask for dude and get WHO's calling.
Told her I got a junk bike for part's and I need the frame
with title and the #'s got me to here and I get

WHAT MOTORCYCLE  WHICH ONE  so I tell her the deal and
she said he don't own that bike any more.
I told her TX DMV say's he's last reg. owner she tell's me he's out of
town and she'll let him know.

Not sure if it would help, but did a I recovered a lost title on my Honda CB here in NJ, the land of red tape.  I found a Rider insurance card on the bike , and gave them a call.  They had very good records and graciously shared them with me.  I can't remember what the doc was, but they got me my title restored.  Rider Insurance still has my business.

Davida this bike has change hand's a few time's since last reg.'d
and has never been in my name so it's going on the back burner till
I get the paper's right.

The red 86 I do have paper's for and it's now a running ridable
bike so I'm gonna build a naked bike with that one while I to the paper chase
on the black 93.
I started a new thread on it
