Anyone have the "Dave Potter" valve adjustment document?

Hello

Hope someone can help me if you have saved the "Dave Potter's Kawasaki ZX12-R Tuning Guide - Blitz's ZX12R Valve Clearance Check and Adjustment Procedure" Word document. Can't find it on the "Google" Seems his home web page is down... It would make me if you could send it to me if you have it...

-Yes, I do have the Kawa Service Manual but the "how to" writeup was so good and easy to follow with all the pictures...

Thank You!

/Tom

Bummer everyone that viewed this thread was too bothered to say anything. I'm not familiar with their write up or I'd send it. I used the manual and personal knowledge over the years. If there was one thing that really helped was using an air ratchet.

The "How to write up" was/is really good, the guy who made it added allot of pictures, that made doing the valve job easier. Kinda bummed out that I did not save it to my computer, well nothing lasts for ever, not even on the internet... except for celebrity nudes I guess...

Take care!

Well, top tip for future reference, add spicy celebrity nudes to manual pages and it'll never disappear off the interwebz.

I just would like to say, well write, that if someone has that "How To" document saved on their computer, it would still make me very, very happy if you could send it to me. The link Phil 69 posted has the write up but sadly no pictures, and it is the pictures that made the write up so good and the job easier...

Thanks!

Tom mate, have you tried messaging Dave direct; he may have it on a back up.
Worth a try.

I tried looking for Dave through the search, but I'm not able to find him, then again I do not know what exact forum name he uses. Came up with nothing when searching "Dave Potter"... He might be active on some other Kawa forum, but I'm not, so...
Any way... Thanks to Phil 69 I have the write up so I'm good for now..

I did my valve clearances last year, there are also a few guys that still post on here that have done the job.
So plenty of help and advice here if needed.

Nice one Dave.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters and Country are more useful than saying the year, for UK owners anyway, as registration year is not always the year of manufacturer model.
