Check the tank for rust - if there's any, you need to address that first or all the carb cleanigs in the world won't help. The rust will just clog 'em up again.

Yesterday i took the silly windscreen slider and electronics off, i beat the headlight frame back into a semi square shape, painted it, hit it some more and fitted the cowl again. I couldnt stand the slightly crooked fairing.

Might want to lube the track while you're working on the screen mechanics.


Bought a 98 750 to replace the ol' 600 that a car took out a few mins that back. 20k miles, $1500. Little rough around the edges cosmetically, needs some basic maintenance, but pretty sweet deal. 750s in my area often go for 2500-3k.
Changed the oil last night. Needs a new rear before i start riding it - minimal tread and a date code of 2000.

Hey, it's your ride. Go for what ever you want. Doesn't matter what others think but, you did post it up for review. I think you can do a lot better. I see the progressive tach in an air brushed fade from green to red. Speedo meh, I'd need some thought on it. I think part of the problem is the bike won't reach skull phase...
