I was just gifted a non-running KZ650, and am starting out getting it going. This is a first bike for me, I don't even have a license yet! It should be a fun pandemic project.
I need a carb top and a gasket for the ignition housing face, not sure what you call that. I need a *ton* of other things as well, but these two things strike me as oddly specific and possibly difficult to find. Any tips for getting started?
I'm probably going to be harassing you guys with a ton of annoying nooby questions as I work through this, please be patient with me! And hello!
Dang, Martin is really on it this morning.
Also, depending on exactly which model you have, there may be a factory service manual you can download for free here at KZR. They are under the Articles tab.
It is important to know exactly which year and model you have, as there were some significant changes in the 650 line during its manufacturing life.
Oh, and welcome aboard.
