Well ive not touched the bike in over a year as its been used as a table while building my type r into a track car but the urge is now unresistable to get her back to her prime. Im going to pull her out and make a list if where she stands. I know fork seals need doing, carbs, rear brake, chain and sproket.

I will proberly start off with trying to fire her up for the first time in 5 years to make sure she runs on idle then begin with carbs, header and service so i know everythinh runs as it should. Then onto the front fork seals before changing the rear brake.

So advice would be appriciated massivly in regards to carbs as ive never worked on them.

the carbs are pretty simple to work on, and pretty rock-solid, let us know if you run into any issues.
