    Got bodywork back, looks awesome! I went for Golden Blazed Green, same as on ZZR1400, and the speckles really shine in the sun. No pics yet as I have wheels off ready for new tyres

    Bike is now all back together. I've tried to get a couple of pics but struggling to show the metallic paint in a photo. When the sun catches it really sparkles :)

    It starts and runs but the fuelling isn't so good, so I need to sort this before having it MOT'd.
    I think it's lean because if you open the throttle when running on choke it dies. Also it doesn't like quick throttle openings - kinda stutters and tries to die.

    Also I'm not very happy with the graphics so might swap them out. Not currently lacquered so easy task.
    There's always something!

    Ahh my favourite boat anchor is back! :)
    I think the kind of striping on the ZX10R where it uses different widths to break it up could improve it, and add it to the seat as well.
    Sounds like fuel starvation, check all the carb diaphragms for cracks and the fuel supply from tank to bowl for rust, obstructions etc.

    Thanks. You're right about the graphics..not sure if to get it running and leave them or to sort it. I've got a few other projects on the go so zxr will be sold before year end.
