Finally bought it! 89' FZR 600

Postby Tyrone » Sun Mar 09, 2014 9:42 am

Finally after about a month of waiting to go buy this bike I got it!
Cost about 430 after everything was said and done.
I messed up and thought I had the bike strapped down tight enough and it dropped in the back of the trailer :( Busted the red plastic of the taillight off and crap but that was about most of the damage.
Replacing the chain, sprocket, back tire, getting it a new battery, flushing out the gas tank which I now found rust in ( any advance on getting rid of the rust?) and she should be good to drive.
23,000 miles on her. I think she still looks beautiful in her old age.

Oh hell yea!

Looks like the plastics are in great condition!
Not seeing much rust so must of been sitting in a garage most if it's life.

Awesome deal. You got less work to do on it then my 89. And you got it for 200 less.

Looks good. I can help you out with the chain and sprockets. I could help you with the battery too if you wanted a nice lithium one. :) For rust in the tank you can either use phosphate etch (you can get it at home depot) or you can do it this way - http://www.instructables.com/id/Electro ... aka-Magic/

Either way will work, just depends on what you want to do.

Ohio chapter all day! The plastics are alright there is signs of if being laid down on there left side basically just loose plastic.
Thatkid I'm gonna be getting that manual and some other stuff off of you come payday.
I was wondering about head light mods mainly I just want to be able to see great at night because when I go to work in the mornings it's still dark.

I got some parts off Thatkid. Can Vouch that he is honest, ships quick and knows his stuff.
Going to get the YZF Swingarm and 17" rim off him soon as the weather breaks or sooner.

Got Venom bike stands so I can start ripping it apart. 60 bucks on Amazon.Image
