Went down to the workshop Wednesday to work on the Z200 and as I am still waiting for the exhaust valve I can not reassemble the cylinder head, so I decided to disassemble the front end and have a look at the steering stem ball race.
On removal of the front wheel. handlebar, headlight unit, left and right front turn signal, cables, instrument unit, fork legs and fork covers, eventually I had the front end off.
On inspection of the fork leg seals and rubber boots, one of them has rust over the seal and boot. (trouble I am thinking) I clean the seal and it looks like superficial rust.
I turn my attention to the steering stem balls and race, (there was no panic hear) the ball and race hade some grease on them but had some wear on them but nothing to concern about. I clean the balls and race and regrease them.
I reassembled the steering stem, fork legs and then went on to cleaning the front wheel assembly, on completion I grease the wheel bearing, speedometer gear housing and the front axle and replaced. On reinstalling the speedometer and tachometer I noticed there was some damage to the wiring loom I installed some new wiring connectors.
Refitted the left and right front turn signal, headlight unit. A good days work completed.
Question, can some one tell me what information this emblem is telling to the Z200 owner
With regards from London.

It has been some time since I have been on this forum so it is time for me to bring you up to speed on my z200 Kawasaki. The last time I was on the forum I was in the process of telling you about the cracked exhaust valve, which I have had repaired.
My cylinder head has had two new valves fitted at a cost of £160, valves £55
re-cut valve seats £20 fitting of valves £55 cylinder head gasket set £12 plus Tax £160 all in. I refitted the cylinder head back on to the engine, set the timing and fitted the exhaust pipe and carburettor, with a new pipe inlet from the air box to the carburettor £15.
I connected the battery and turned the ignition switch on to start the engine and there was on power, no lights ???. I tested the battery with a meter , it had power then I tested the wiring to the ignition switch it had power, tested the ignition switch no power ??? I striped the ignition switch down and found that the switch had some corrosion, I cleaned of the corrosion from the switch and re-fitted the switch and turn the switch on, lights, yippee. I pressed the starter button and the engine spun over then burst into life, pop-pop-pop I run the engine for five minutes to check for oil leek , on oil leeks yippee.
I just have to fit a new tachometer cable and a new horn button and the motorcycle is reedy for the road, I am looking for would to this summer, riding the motorcycle.
I will put some photo on the forum when I have some time.
with best regards peter.
