So just as an update, my Kat currently has the fairings off, the gas tank off, airbox out, hoses disconnected, and the Carbs ready to come out... if only I could figure out how to get the damn throttle and choke cables off... lol!

You can go to AutoZone or Advance if you are OK with Fram. Some don't like Fram. I bought mine from Bike Bandit. Emgo brand. There is a dealer on Rte 18 Medina. State 8.

Haha... I actually found it fairly easy to get those cables off once I understood how they were locked in there.
And yea, the bike has been riding great ever since the new carbs went in,.... now I just need to replace the dang spark plugs that I forgot to do when the tank was off..... aarrrgggg... lol

This thread is two years old. I'm pretty sure the guy has gotten his oil changed by now.

HAHAHA.... maybe... or maybe he's just been buying new bikes every year instead of changing the oil because he is still confused on how to do it!
