Just picked up the '95 zx6e, and have to put the motor together which spun a bearing. Have all the parts, (actually, 2 motors) just need to put it all together.
While I have it apart, I figured cleaning the pistons and valves of their carbon deposits would be a good idea. any advice on cleaners/ techniques? TIA.

I'm sure I'll have more questions as the rebuild goes along, such as carb settings, but for now I have to wait for the FSM in the mail. Thanks,

-new zx6e

cleaning your parts

I would suggest using a low flash solvent or Simple Green and a stiff bristled brush to clean the carbon deposits off of the pistons and valves. When doing this you must be careful not to damage the ring grooves or the valve faces. Good luck.

Carbon

You might be able to get one of the guys on the Air Force base to run them through a sonic cleaner. No mess no work just clean... :idea:
