Recommended Posts

hi folks, ive been doing some work on my 1979 z1000st and it was going very smoothly until i rounded the oil drain bolt trying to drain the oil :(

ive had to take the sump off to get the bolt out, the thing is i ordered a sump bolt which i was told was the right size ( m14x1.5 ) this is the size it gives when i search for my bike on all the sites mentioned below.

after alot of f**king about with heat and a vice i finally got the bolt out but unfortunatly its now unusable :evil: :mad: . the bolt is ( m18x1.5 x12-14mm long ) and i cannot find anywhere that sells this size of sump bolt.

ive tried ebay, m&p, wemoto, Zpower and quite a few other bolt suppliers but they dont have what i need.


do any of you great people have a sump bolt of this size hiding in your sheds or workshops ??????

if you do please let me buy it from you and i would be so greatfull


hopefully someone can help out

hi mate, im going to go around a few shops tomorrow including motor factors, you never know i might just find 1. ive even checked other Z models and different years and they all seem to be 14x1.5 so i dont know whats going on with my bike lol. the sump doesnt look like its been altered in anyway so its got me baffled lol.

I had the same problem with one of my bikes!

not sure but I think it was a vfr750 :lol:

anyway, after a lot of faffing about I went to the

local Ford dealer and bought 1 for a Ford Escort!

perfect fit! :lol:


You could go to a local small engineering firm and have 1 made!
