Have you considered using a rotary shaft seal instead of an o-ring? It seems like a shaft seal might be both lower friction and less likely to wear out.


Yes i do but two o-rings on both sides with a lot of grease and a mini fender on the underside of the swing arm do the same job.
The needle bearing has a very special OD of 27 mm, BKM2024JAU (KOYO), and i had to do some extra bore diameter of 28 mm
but i think about it to do it later, thanks for the tip.

I also wanted to say that this is the cleanest mono-shock conversion I've ever seen. Your clever and elegant use of the existing frame brackets is fantastic.


Thank you very much for your kind of words, it makes me a little proud.
I love the bolt on way and if i went back to twin shock the mono shock frame can stay there to strengthen the frame area.
The technical testing center inspector in Germany hate frame weldings and deny the inspection sticker without an welding report,(money pit).

Very nice work! I notice you have a "J" model valve cover on the engine. What is the reason for that?
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

A 1000J head need a "J" model valve cover. (plus cam chain idler adapter mod for the earlier KZ900/1000)
The head (ported) has new valve guides/seals but i need a 1100 ccm lower end for better Performance.

Is the entire engine a "J" model or is it just the head?

I'm curious what advantage the "J" head provides?

the j-model head has larger "as cast" ports and bigger valves.
the stock port on a j-model head is larger than a kz900/1000 can be ported to.

which is why you see people using j-model heads on older lower ends.
