I manage to get it clean! First I sank it into a diesel for a 24h... did not help much... Then few hours in detergent... Not much help... Then I gave it a ultrasonic bath, the result was better, but there were still some green stuff left... Then I bought some carburetor cleaner and spray that and the green stuff melt away... Last cleaning with brake cleaner... Now the carb is back in one peace... after a week, I we'll see if it works, or is there something else broken...
I much prefer it with the off road wheels. I see you have an acerbis tank for it then and you're lucky enough to have the later one (4TP is it?) so you can still get the tank and mounts.
Thats great to know that theres nothing major to worry about and yeah, I'll be religiously servicing/ greasing those suspension linkage and swing arm bearings! Thanks for the heads up. I think any bike that uses a similar set up should be sold with a grease gun as part of the tool kit!
Yeah that is the flip side how much is too much coz I will never get it back
So far I paid £600 for the bike I've done about £1400 getting it to where it is now + I have more to spend I would think by the time I've finished it will stand me in at about £2500 and it will prob be worth about £1600 on a good day , but I didn't do it to make money just to have something different and learn a bit on the way . The yzf750 was prob the best 750 of its time it still rocks by today's standards of 600s it more bike than I can handle
My new front anti roll bar arrived yesterday. Polybushed drop links and dbar mounts. That completes the front end suspension overhaul now.
Just need a rear anti roll bar and a new set of coilovers and that is about all you can do to perfect the handling on these beasts! Once the coilovers go on then it will need to be tracked to get the wheel alignment correct.
