    The water pipes from pump to engine block and radiator had rusted, so I went to our local engineering supply shop and bought two brass fittings. I tapped threads into the waterpump housing and sealed the threads with some Devcon epoxy. I will use silicone hoses from the fittings to the rad and cylinder block.

    Nice work !

    Would you recommend the ZZR250 to an FZR owner ?
    I found a cheapish one the other day, at a minimum it need's a paint job and a decent tidy up, it's a 93 model
    i'm not sure if it run's and ride's ok, ex NSW reg, so will need an engine/frame number inspection (cost's $50), plus $90 for 3 month's reg including new plate's.
    The guy want's $650 for it, and i'm thinking of it as a possible project after i sell my XT250.
    Roughly how much does a good clean bike sell for ?

    They don't have the power of an FZR, but they go quite well. Light, handle good and are easy to work on (screw and locknut valve adjusters) and cheap to keep on the road. I sold my last one (1998 model orange/black) for $1950 which is about the average going rate.
