Hi guys,

Just joined the forum after buying this:



Itís my first Kawasaki apart from a KX250 when I was young.

The bikes in decent condition bodywork wise and itís been laid up in dry storage for at least 5 years.
Throttle slides are seized and itíll need the normal fluids, brakes, fuelling and consumables looking at but I canít wait to start the project.

Welcome!

I saw your post on Facebook! Good score man! Lots of knowledge here. This place can be slow to respond at times so don't get frustrated if you have any questions and it takes a while to get a reply. Most of us have been here over 10 years.

We need more pics!

Thanks mate, appreciate that.

No doubt Iíll have loads of questions. First purchase will be a workshop manual I think.

Iíll post some more pictures when I collect it. I made a mad rush to see the bike before going on holiday as I didnít want to miss out on it.

Iím looking for OEM parts. Iíll be trying to restore it to completely standard.
Where do you guys get carb kits from?

Just got the bike home and surprised at how good condition it is.

Great pics! Check with CCMhunt regarding specific carb needs.

If he doesn't have what you need, I've had success with K&L Supply for cleaning kits, etc.

Figures you're in the UK. Those guys take great care of their bikes over there. The secondhand market is superb in the UK. Lots of clean late model bikes.

Ordered some gasket kits for the carbs and started to strip the bike to get to them.

Iím starting to really like this bike, much nicer to work on that the R1.

I want to get some oil down the bores and round the engine before I start turning it for the valve clearances.

Started doing the valve clearances and one needs adjusting.



Iíll order up the right size shim and get it changed out but thatíll need to wait.

The carb kits arrived today and I can have a look at stripping and cleaning them when Iím back from work
