ZL600B Worth Saving??????

343 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Kawasakian
Looking for some general input/advice.
I have a 97 Eliminator ZL600. Ive brought it to a couple of MC shops and they are saying ~$4,000 to fix it.
It does start (at least I think it will when I fix the starter won't stop problem). It was started and ran at VERY high RPM until I shut it off.
Is it worth fixing? I can do most of the work myself if I could diagnose the problems.
Also, can't find a service manual, at least one that is legible! The ones on CD are mostly just pics of pages with terrible lighting.
Appreciate any advice.

If you look at te value of that bike, in "Good" condition, around $1000, pristine, showroom condition, around $3000, which I truly doubt anyone would get. Do you have a lot of money into it? I hope not. In my minds eye, I wouldn't put a dime into it, and look for something running, drivable. There are so many motorcycles, especially at this time of the year for sale at great prices. These bikes weren't anything special, or headed towards collector's realms. Why bother with this bike? IMHO :)
