Hi All,

:991

I am slowly rebuilding my 1980 Z650

Engine back in frame with inlet trumpets fitted, I recall the air box must go in before the carbs but for the live of me I can not get the air box in??!! :256 :lkl

When trying to put the air box in it hits the frame and or the camchain tensioner :256 :lkl

Help

It’s a long time since I’ve done this with a z650 but IIRC, you need to either put the air box in before the engine or remove the front engine mounts and the top rear one to let the engine tip forward in the frame, thus giving you a little more room.

If that doesn’t work then you’ll need to either remove the engine or at least the cam chain tensioner.

Hi All,

Update, air box in !!

Leave lower front engine mounting bolt in situ, remove all the others tilt engine forwards, fit air box, position as far back as possible then fitted carbs.

Refit engine mounting bolts, then carbs then air box

Good after noon work in the SUN
