    Going to look at a 3LN1 this evening. Looks completely original though only 2 photos... missing the 'bum piece' on the rear fairing. Supposedly only 20k km's on it.

    That will be interesting.. I wonder if it is 20,000km over the original 100K :)
    Good luck with it... hopefully it is as they say and you get a good deal on it.. Drag bike perhaps??

    Cracked open the ZXR250 engine, it's valves' time. 13 out of 16 were off specs.

    Quite nerve wrecking but pushing thru thanks to a friends expertise. 86cde01f3a735230fd7957a74649b6b2.jpg

    If you're doing that many, do all the valves and set the clearances at the upper spec... it will run SO much better.

    Yeah that's the plan, reset all of then now that we're at it.

    Will follow your experience and set it up to the upper.

    Cheers!

    You're not a Fizzer virgin - have you forgotten all of the troubleshooting fun and games, and the carbs...

    Not at all. I just got back from looking at it. It is complete and original, but has been sitting and just about everything will need TLC on it. It'd be a strip down and rebuild job. It 'was running when parked' - ie it doesn't run now and might have a stuffed engine or gearbox. We turned it over with a car battery and some jumper leads, no horrible noises and she span freely. No chance of starting it though, fuel was way too old and the plugs/leads were probably very sad.

    Asking price is $800, after looking at it I would offer 400 or 500 at the most.

    Sounds like it could be a good project if it's not decorated with rust and other corrosion
