i am new to the forum and would like too introduce myself.
my name in john i live in bury st edmunds which is in suffolk.
i own a 1985 gpz1100 a2, a bike i have owned for the last 15 years but i am ashamed to say it has
spent the last 10 years in my garage .
But now is the time for me to get it back on the road
I have lots of work to do on it but i can't wait to ride it again.
i will probably need a lot of advice along the way, so this forum is a valuable tool for me.
thanks in advance

i have a GPZ1100 1985 (Fuel Injection Model). the fuel pump has given up on me and i can't find a second hand one anywhere.
i read an article which i found on the internet from someone who had the same problem.
he used a Walbro GSL392 fuel pump, please see link:
fuel pumps online
he does not go on to say wether this worked or not.
does anyone have any advice on this or any other fuel pump that will work.

Rear tail light and turn signals mount bracket 23062-1032
Headlight Inner and Outer Ring ( The headlamp bucket came through unscathed)
Pulsing coil cover for 83-84 GPZ1100 motor- 56018-1407
Odometer- This is the 3 pin for both the black and white connectors. I had what I thought was an extra and it looks exactly the same except the white connector is a six pin. I don't know if it could be adapted but I rather have the correct part and not experiment in possible futility.
Rear turn signals both left and right
Plastic fuel tank vent cover- 14024-1434 This is the plastic fuel vent cover that snaps on to the sender under the gas tank (Yup he dented the tank pretty good but fortunately repairable

My one was a J1 got it new in May 1981 they came down with a GPz-style tank...
- May 27 2010, 06:26 PMSo, did all the Euro J models have what we in North America call the GPz-style tank? That GPz-style tank didn't appear in NA until the J3 model (and of course, on the GPz1100's).
As it happens a guy i know has just imported one from Spain and it has the same GPz-style tank so it would seem all euro J models are the same...

The ZRX has nearly tempted me but I went for the GPZ1100S in the end for the wind protection for touring.
Anyway - the ZRX uses a detuned engine from the ZZR1100/1200 which was the fastest poduction bike in the world from 1990 to 1996.
The ZRX deliberately copies styling from the Kawasaki Z1/Z900/Z1000/Z1R of the 1970's & early 1980's which is no bad thing. Many consider it the best-looking retro street bike which has plenty of real world performance to match.
The later 1200 version has more mid-range torque for easier acceleration.
Keep the bike clean - as with my GPZ - the finish is ok but can fade in colder climates if neglected.
I could still be tempted one day !

Have a look here, I've read other stuff on the forum re EFI to carb conversions. I've not had time to do a thorough trawl...
