'87 zx9 carb rebuild
« on: March 02, 2013, 08:49:46 pm »
found the bike on craigslist, its somewhere in sevier county. pretty sure one of you probably know the bike, may even be one of you. he says it doesnt run because the carbs need rebuilt. how much of a pain in the ass are they to get off/on? rebuiling them isnt any big deal, i just dont know these bikes at all. any information on them would be greatly appreciated. i will be googling this issue as well.
What does "riding season" mean?

actually, it is a GPz 900 ... and carbs are pretty easy to do on it.

Yeah sounds like he didn't know what ye really had. Although the gpz 900 is a pretty bad bike!
