The main reason I don't is it is slowly but steadily improving in performance. I think it sat for a looooong time. Every week it runs a little better. The carbs appear alot newer than the block. Besides the rough, sticky idle it runs great. It hits 125mph w/ no problems whatsoever and I have no doubts could hit 155mph. No smoke, no oil. fan kicks on 225degrees every freakin time, clutch, brakes all good.

It just gets shitty gas mileage and runs rough a hell under 5k. But it starts quickly and cleanly EVERY freakin time I hit the starter. I just ain't paying $800 for a carb job on a 20yr old 40k+ mileage old gixxer thats not worth $2k.
