I am rebuilding a 1986 Z1000 A. I have it and a parts bike. They both have rod bearing issues. I am trying to find the best solution to fixing this problem on a budget. With it being an 86' I need help finding the appropriate parts and making sure I am building the strongest engine possible. Any info or assistance would be appriciated. I have looked at other forums and found that most don't work on these bikes. This particular Kaw ran from 86-87. A lot of these have had this issue and I hear that there is a fix to keep this from happening again and a way to repair. Any assistance would be much appriciated. Thanks.

Oh man, that would be awesome if you could find it. I want to repair the issue and make sure it doesn't happen again. I want to rebuild this bike as strong as possible and really make a statement with my Z1000. I am on the Z1000 forum as well looking for help and most of the guys there work on 2003 and up. I like all their bike but I want my old/new school bike to turn heads by the way it sounds and the way it looks.

I went to a bike shop near my house and researched. The name we came up with is what you said. 1986 Zx1000 A1, the A2 is for the 1987 model. Does anyone know about the getting more oil to the crank. I heard that you can get a better oil pump. Does anyone know what pump would increase pressure and over all oil system performance?
