gitit20 Thank you so much I feel the same about the older bikes like this, it rides really well and is pretty **** peppy as well. Now that I've got all the mechanics of it working well I am going to really start polishing all the chrome and engine parts and repaint some parts they have a little rust on them.

gitit20 Thanks, and it was Freedom Cycles they had 5 in stock and I bought them all

I need to get new tires but they are costly I Installed a new clutch mine was glazed from sitting for so long. It was easy to replace not hard at all, (messy but not hard) I used an old Mattress someone tossed out and lade it on the side so I would not have to drain all the oil (I saw that trick in a youtube video) the oil only had 150 miles on it and it was 45 bucks so didn't want to waste it.

I am going to start doing all the cosmetic stuff now.

May I ask what dealer in KC had the airbox ducts? Thanks.

gitit20 Also just wanted to add got my carb kits from a dealer in Canada NOS OEM Kawasaki parts. I have learned my lesson on the cheap eBay carb kits :P not for motorcycles but for other things I have worked on.
