Default '87 Kawi Ninja 750

I have a chance to buy one with 23k miles on it. It's all there, I rode it; it ran well for the most part. It looks tired, the chain and sprockets are shot. Good tires, working brakes. Didn't have a chance to see what the suspension was like, but I assume it's untouched since 23 years ago.

Anybody ever have one of these, then or since?

I had an '86 ZX1000R Ninja for a number of years. If it's stock it should be a pretty bulletproof bike. A chain and sprocket set shouldn't set you back more than a couple of hundred bucks total, I used Vortex Sprockets and D.I.D. O ring chains on my Bandit and Trophy, they held up well. A change of fluid and maybe some Progressive springs will bring the forks back to life. There's probably a rear shock available for it.....

I wouldn't pay much for it but they're decent bikes if they haven't been butchered.

I've been busy getting settled in the new Casa de Klazy...we moved in November. But, I just finished the 2ond to last "must do" project. I've got a fence to rebuild in the backyard, at that point I'm done. I'll get back on the Yamaha in about 2 weeks.
