Any sportbike restorers out there ?
Since I recently scored a 1986 Ninja 600, I'm interested in hearing from others who might be restoring pre-1990 sport bikes. Especially Ninjas, of course. I basically want to do a frame-off restoration on this thing. I'd like to restore it to original colors and decals, so I'd be real interested in knowing where to get stuff like that.
Is there such a thing as a Kawasaki VIN decoder that will tell me what my bike's original configuration was based on the VIN #? The one on the Kawasaki website isn't much help. It just says "nothing available".
I'd also like to find out if there are still performance parts available for it, such as stroker kits, lightweight pistons, etc. as well as higher performance braking components.
