and I had to buy a choke cable and some bolts for the plastic.

Kats RULE!!!

Hiya!!
Welcome to SBW!!:)
Darned Yami owners are sure jealous of the Kat!!:D:D
Sounds like a fuel problem to me;perhaps floats(levels) need to be checked or the system needs to be cleaned out.The dropping may have loosened some junk in the fuel system somewhere???
Hard to tell just what the problem is via computer. Did you get the service records from this guy??
Ride safe!!:)

Jealous?

Of a fish? I don't THINK so. :rolleyes: :D

JK sweetheart.



To the new guy, welcome and congrats. I'd agree with Katana600... try to get the repair records for the bike. He should have coughed up all of that information when he handed the bike off to you. I hope your troubles diminish soon so you can enjoy your bike without worry. Even though it IS a Katana. ;)

Be safe.

Austa la Pasta!

Sounds like a good deal to me. R&R is Remove and Reinstall, which means he had the carbs out and put them back in after he cleaned them up and replaced a gasket or whatever other parts are listed there.

It does sound like a carb problem. If it's been sitting, it may need the carbs cleaned again. Good luck!
