We sit down to draw up a reciept and there's mail sitting on the table and i recognize a name on one of the envelopes. i ask the seller "who does your roommate work for?" and he says eastgate towing, same as me. I look at him mouth hung open for a second then stutter "thats the mutherfucker that wrecked my first miata!". Of all the people mang, thats just crazy.

On to the bike: it runs beatifully, nothing i could find was mechanically wrong with it and it shifted through all gears great. Pulled like a motherfucker (compared to my gs500 of course it would). I could do a suprisingly small uturrn considering its bulk and me not being used to it and it cornered well although the weight will need getting used to.
The bad: The plastics really are scratched to shit in the front, and theres a hole for a tie down holding god knows what on the light fixture. The seller says its been there the whole time and even he doesnt know what its for. Its been down in low speed crashes on both the left and right side. The tank and rear fenders are BEAUTIFUL and look like they came off of a one year old bike. I knocked down 100 off of the price. Ill have pics tonight. Tony i forgot the camera but i can see it rides well enough and ill be happy with it, checked all the things you mentioned.

looks like a good deal! my 89 zx600R will be here tomorow also
with a little sanding and paint yours will look good as new.

And yeah I think i will attempt to paint the front. If nothing else i have no trouble turning it into a street fighter esque bike as i intend to keep it for a while and its pretty hard to have it lose much more value.

does anybody have any recommendations for gas tank repair? I've got a leak in mine that has been repaired before but started leaking again. its ~3" long, and at max 2mm across. The tank is currently dry (or at least has been empty and open for a couple days) and I have cleaned out the inside, but are there any recommended epoxies?

Anyone know any good guides to refinishing/repainting panels? I think im gonna have to go with bondo or similar to patch the hole up. Ill either try to find a matching blue paint or just paint it gloss black as the bike has a blue/black color scheme anyways.

Hey so I figure I might post this here:

my bike has developed a flat spot in the throttle, like I can make about 1/8th of a turn and it works fine, then from like 2/8-3/8 it just dies, and then from the rest of the turn it works fine again. I really have no idea what might be causing this so I thought I might as well throw it up here.

Pull one of the bowls off one of the carbs while it is still on the bike and check to see if there is some sediment in the bottom of the bowl <--Make sure you have the gas off, or at least not in the "Prime" position, and that you don't lose the float or the needle since they may come off with the bowl. If there is something in there, like red sediment, you'll need to seal your tank because it is rusting and they aren't cheap to replace. You'll have to pull the carbs after this to clean the jets.

If there is dirt in the bowl, get a decent fuel filter, pull the carbs and clean the jets. They're probably clogged.

You'll clean the jets with carb cleaner only, Don't use wires or picks or anything because you'll change the sizing and have to replace them.

Oh, how mechanically inclined are you to do this?
