  • Katana new guy

    Hello folks, I just scooped up a 1993 Katana 750. It's been sitting a while, In the process of cleaning this bike up. Very excited to see this bike roll again.
    Gonna need some help along the way.

    Hi
    I also bought one of these.
    I did not pay much for it though as it needs quite a few replacement parts.The first part is the centre stand.I would love to see a good clear diagram.Any ideas.

      Picked up a great condition 89 here too.
      I got lucky as all it had was hibernation sickness
      and only needed the usual cleaning and new
      rubber thingies all over the place and on the rims.
      I think I spent as much on Berryman's and Seafoam
      as I did on the battery. LOLOL

        Welcome daddyload. I'm down here in San Diego. Got a '93 as well, although mine is 600. Been able to learn a lot and make a lot of progress thanks to the folks here. Maybe I'll see you on the roads once you get it running!

            Parts fiche on either ronayers.com or bikebandit.com. think the center stand will be with the frame bits, but I could be wrong.

              Gentlemen, thanks for the greetings... GREAT site here!
              To get with program on this site, where can i post questions regarding my restoration?
              First up: getting the needle out from the floats in my 93 750. Not familiar with this float type.
              Thanks.

                  Sounds like a question for the mechanics 101 section.

                  The float needles should just lift out...

                    Unsure if it's the same as my 600 - but I had to disconnect my float rails, the static part, from the floats (the moving part) in order to get my needles out. But had to undo the little spring clip on the float needle first.

                      Thanks for response. This float assy. is interesting, doesn't seem to come apart to change out needle. Headed to M -101 now. Thanks.

                        Yip, Done. Needle installed. The plastic will expand to release the needle. Slow & easy. New assy. is $85. Yikes!
                        Thanks for response.
