Kawasaki 1966 W1
Topic Started: Feb 28 2018, 01:34 PM (652 Views)

This is my first post. I was wondering if someone can help me. I have a 1966 W1 that is getting new pistons and rings. Parts are hard to come by. Can someone provide some ideas to get original parts and/or alternatives.
The parts need to be OEM 1.00mm OS Piston 13027-023 W1 W2 #4393 or similar. Ps Thats not my bike yet but its all there just needs some tender work. :461

The bike was originallyt a Meguro, a Japanese copy of the british BSA 650 twin. At the time Meguro was the oldest Japanese bike manufacturing when it was taken over by Kawasaki in the early 60's and this bike was the biggest Japan offered. ...I only mention this, in case after market parts for BSA may fit.

There was an article in one of the classic motocross magazines a while ago. It was either the British "Classic Dirt Bike" or Australian "VMX" magazines. I think it was sometime last year.
It might be worth contacting the owner of the featured bike as he has restored it and races it.
If I can find the magazine I will enlighten you more.
