do the clutch properly, new steels, springs and plates, all kawasaki OEM.

as for the tape on the airbox, it should be 2 small rubber bungs, part number 920661389

on the LHS of the airbox there should be a drain port, this should have a hose attached to it with a removeable plug at the end, parts numbers are 920591758 and 920661211, looks like you are missing yours, not a big thing, but i prefer to have it.

An L or an M CDI is the full oomph one.

not a river she was a cat c that been in storage for 2 years

the interesting bit is he had a 33bhp license when it was crashed from reading the file, so the fact it has the full power cdi and no restriction in the carbs begs some questions

I could be wrong, but i think the M CDi gives a 14,800rpm redline, whereas the L CDi gives 14,500? im sure ive seen it on here before?
