Hi all, is it possible to remove the "sight glass" for blasting and polishing and if so "how" please. I rather hear from someone who has done it than experiment

They just push in and out like a seal.
Pot luck how easy they come out and whether it remains reusable but i've had 99% success with them.
Push through the slot from behind with something that won't mark the glass such as wood or plastic.
Immersing the cover in hot water may help loosen its grip.

If needed such as if the seal is bad or not very tight, you could get a replacement sight glass with new seal. I've seen the part listed at various places. Partzilla has a photo w price and it was used on a lot of models, including a number of current models, so it should be readily available.


ps:  z1enterprises svcks. maybe the change there was inevitable, but still.  everybody calls that part a sight glass. Kawasaki lists it as an oil level gauge.  z1 lists it as a "window", so you have to hunt for the darn thing.

Yes! Z Power UK have genuine at around £25 and pattern for a fiver if your original one is too mullered to reuse.

Always nice to have a plan "B" if it ends up being the 1% that didn't go to plan
