    Those outside ones are listed on a few sites as available ... I would try a Yamaha dealer first ... I got my 3LN ones for about $11 each from memory, from a dealer .... use a part number , not the bike model

    I love it when previous owners have the pilot screw done up really tight...

    Turns out the crappy paintjob was just layered on top of the original paint! Some light wet sanding brought it back.
    Waiting for more parts to arrive before I continue. Bikes Idling good now and starting easier.

    I wondered why the bike sounded crappy, so I disconnected the coils individually to see if 2&3 were firing, then vice versa with 1&4. Turns out 1&4 were never firing and it was running off two cylinders.

    Trimmed the leads and it sounds way Better!.Of course I messed up the plastic bits that slot over the leads into the coils though.. :sad:

    Oh well, when the front brake reservoir and speedo unit arrives I can take it for a test ride

    No spark this time. Thought I flooded it so I dried the spark plugs, reinstalled, still nothing. Left it two days and still won't fire. it is definitely getting fuel though.
    The plugs look pretty decent, no carbon deposits, just fuel.
    Hmmm...

    On the plus side I got the mount for the front fairing, the Speedo is on, and I got the front brake lever on

    THat feeling when you leave the fuel tap on over night and your entire tank of fuel is empty but your crankcase has never been more full.

    Gonna take a wild guess and say the carby needs to be checked out

    Take all the plugs out and push the bike in gear with ignition off to pump all the fuel out. Of course you will have to dump the oil and replace.

    Yeah I got it out and replaced the oil, it's kinda horrifying watching (mostly)fuel pour out of the sump plug hahaha

    IMAG0064.jpg IMAG0063.jpg IMAG0066~2.jpg IMAG0058.jpg Got some exup cables from the wreckers, I was missing yet another part, so I made up a little bracket to hold the cables on the exhaust side of things(looks bad but it does the job).

    I ended up using the end of a spare indicator switch lever, cut it and welded it to the broken headlight switch lever/bracket. So now I can turn the lights off when needed. Got new(ish) headlight bulbs so high and low beam work on either side, kickstand spring, got the correct overflow bottle and got the chain guards.
    She's coming along!

    The headlight switch was disabled by the people who complianced it before it was registered here, along with a couple of other mod's that made it comply with the Australian Standard's.
    When it goes in for a roadworthy or rego inspection or whatever you have there it may need to be disabled again before they'll pass it ?

    I think that requirement was deleted in the late 1990's. All the late model bikes I've had lately have a light switch.

    definitely coming along nicely, yeah they snapped the light switch off on my zxr as well , ended up fixing it the same way as you :lolsign:. Extending the chain guard is another stupid thing they do to imports which ends up rubbing on the chain when it flexes anyway :headbang:

    My 1990 FZR was complianced in 11/96 in QLD and had the on/off switch removed.
    I thought i read somewhere that the law's changed in 2003 and some Japanese bike's started coming in with on/off switches again

    3 turns out for the each carbs adjustment screw overfuels with the fuel pump near instantly, but without a fuel pump connected it runs for about 10 minutes before dying from lack of fuel.

    Float needles maybe? Might not close due to wear? Thoughts? The fuel pump doesn't continue running though, it primes and fills up then cuts off like it should

    Have you checked the fuel level's in each carby after the fuel pump has filled the fuel bowl's ?
    Turn your ignition switch on and off a few time's till the fuel pump switches off pretty much straight away when you turn the ignition on

    The mixture screw setting's are good enough to get the engine running, it's just a baseline setting to get the bike going, warm it up to normal operating temp's before adjusting them.
    Try them at 2.5 turn's out and see if that makes any difference
