And the shop should be closed but hes waiting for this joey to come in 5 min. ...i say i will be there in 10 min. And if he not there can i have it ..... Well get there and tell the guy his 5 min.

Well the bike is a 1985 rz-350 ben sitting for 13 years , complete needs some work to get it going , has spec ii pipes .water cooled and no broken fairings mortor tuns over ...its my back project for now or might resale it to a 2 stroke nut

      I kind of lost you in that part of the story. What was the guy doing for the full 4 minutes he was there if he didn't get out of his car? Was he just sitting there staring at you buy what should have been his bike?

        H2 you gotta use some punctuation!

        Good story thought.. Love those RZ. Elsies, or LC in the UK cause they were liquid cooled..

          BTW, I think they may have been correct. It does appear that BLACK is indeed the FASTEST color. R.O.R...R.I.P.M

                      I love the 350's, but I doubt I'd drop a grand on one that hadn't run in 13 years (for those who don't know, these bikes typically need a top-end rebuild every 10k miles anyway, as is the case for most two-stroke engines).

                          Ok have 4 bikes in the garage now but realy want to ride this rz -350 so i pulled the tank washed it out with some clean gas twice it has no rust but a residue like light clean 2 stroke oil .then i drained the oil tank and refiled with yahamalube oil drained bottom end looked real good and clean so im using some trans fluid type f to losen some sticky clutch plates not real bad but a little sticky , then will use a gear oil down there . Adjusted the carbs took the slack out and sprayed some crc cleaner in them hope that will work but will yank them if needed to clean them inside . Washed the k&ns looking real small but in perfect shape . Hooked the battery charger to the wire leads , all seams fine except but the two bulbs missing on the rear . So after my ride tomorrow in turnbull cyn. I will pull the battery out of the h-2 same one and fire up this little bike . Need to flush the front brakes and compress the pistons light sand or clean and use some syn grease to get the moving free and easy . Replace any bad hoses my friend at the hose stop owes mE a favor . Rears seam fine just flush system . Now the chain was in great shape 13 years ago , has some light rust on it a d.i.d. 520-v but not kinked or frozen . So will brush some trany fluid on it to smoth it up .. Want to ride this little bike to see how fun it will be .. But im spoiled with the 750 and .60 over. This rz is the kenny roberts rz -350. last year of the 2 stroke in u.s.a. .......o i need to get the clubmans off of there dont seem to fit right cant see why they are on there. then i checked the coolent looks like i just put it in there so will change that real soon anyways
