1993 600r problems

I just got a used 1993 600r with 19k on it.

I did an oil change, cleaned and lubed chain, adjusted distance to reduce chain slack according to haynes book and will do spark plugs and coolent flush soon.

However i have some small problems and balling on a budget does not allow me to do a complete overhaul.

1: Bike constanly has a low idle, i need to run the choke all the time or the bike will stall
2: Heat gauge does not seem to work or bike for some reason never gets hot (wish ful thinking)
3: No tank bolts, i dont have the bolts that connect the tank to the frame, any clue to where i find these or what size they are?
4: i need new tires, any good online shops to check out for 16" tires touring style"

I would appreaciate any and all help on those subjects.

Viva buykawasaki.com! The part number for the tank bolts is 92001-1352 BOLT,FLANGED,6X22
And the reason your temp gauge isn't working may be that you have no coolant. Before you start this bike again, check the coolant level in both the radiator and in the coolant reservoir.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
