    Has anyone replaced the casings on a Z400?

    That may have happened... When I started it, one of the intake valve tappet's crumbled...timing looked good, I thought maybe the tappet was stuck or not aligned. New parts should be in this week. Thanks

    2004 ltz cases??

    I found the cheapest price from Motogrid.com. 100 less than others. Unless you found used parts.

    Has anyone replaced the casings on a Z400?

    Got the motor back together over the weekend, not too bad following the manual. But unfortunately, It started for a second or two, then stopped. One of the intake valves bent and crushed the valve tappet. The timing looked good according to the manual, but I think it must have been off a tooth to bend the valve. Oh well buying some more parts.

    just got head work done

    What did you have done? I am in the middle of replacing my casings and could do some head work...
  7. Getting ready to re-assemble and was wondering if anyone out there has done this? Got a few tips regarding bearing installation. But how about transmission? When splitting the old casing ,the shifter cam moved and not sure where the forks were. I have a service manual, but don't think there was much info about it. 2004 z400

    I have to replace my crankcase (chain craked casing behind shifter) on a Z400. Shouln't be much different, do you think? I was anticipating parts falling out. Have to read manual first...

    Suzuki Crankcase Broken

    Has anyone had to replace the crankcase ? My son was riding and the chain came off, cracked the case behind the shifter shaft. About an inch or more of the casing is gone. A friend said there is a bearing that should be replaced (Crank bearing?). Is this true and if so, what other parts shold be replaced while it is apart? btw, 2004 z400, not too many hours on it, no racing, just kids casual riding. Thanks

    Croom and Thefts

    I go there almost every Sunday, but wanted to camp out or hit the hotel. Was thinking of trailer wheel locks not to mention the bikes are already cabled and locked inside the trailer. Thanks

    Croom and Thefts

    Have there been many bikes and/or trailers stolen there lately? Wanted to take my kids up there some weekend. Recently purchased an enclosed trailer and sure as hell don't want it ripped off.
