Okay the pit falls of buying a cheap bike .. no mater how good it looks
Got the bike back from the local bike shop Friday afternoon was told that the Carbs were really gunked up the bike but all good now, the bike had been sitting in a shed for the better part of 3 years the guy i got it off said he had cleaned the fuel tank and carbs ..all 4. And it did run good for the few km i did on it.
Leaving the bike shop i give the bike a bit in 2 gear and on hitting 7000 rpm started to bog same 3 so on turned around went back to the bike shop and said what the f...k its still running like sh.t. Answer take it for a good run and run a full tank of good fuel though it and will be all good, And i am thinking to myself i have heard this crap before but.. $ 420 oz and still not running right i am a bit pissed off but anyway next morning get up nice day blue sky off i go went for a 4 hour ride bike runs nice under 6000 to 8000 rpm anything over that its bogging mind you it still dos 160 km+ at 8000rpm in 6th gear.
Anyway i stopped at the pub in Dayboro its a stop most bike riders stop at and there were 2 other yzf600r bikes there got talking to them and they went for a ride on mine they both said the cabs are not clean and i am thinking $420....... why ???? anyway they said its not hard to do yourself and in doing so you will find out just how good a job my local mechanic did on them or in fact if he even managed to get all the jets out it will not be hard to tell if in fact he did when i strip down.
and told me of YZF600R Forums this is a page that just about everything on it http://www.yzf600r.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=40547
but anyway there a dam good link to a youtube 3 all told that show you step by step hope to do next weekend i know how to do 2 stroke cabs no worrys but i was worried about doing the fuel injected cabs but after seeing how its done i will give it a go if i do stuff it up its just a trip down to Yamaha to get what i need.
its a Kawasaki Ninja 650 i think he is working on but most cabs are the same more or less.
