Things started off pretty bad, clutch cover had been left off, the basket had been laying in the weather for who knows how long, carbs were frozen along with one being partially disassembled, front brake master was seized, clutch master was seized, lots of parts missing, wrong rear wheel assy. But what worried me the most was the engine was seized up, someone left the plugs out.

After cleaning up the top end as best as I could without tearing off the head. Took off the left cover and gently rocked the crank back and forth until she broke loose. Rinsed her out from the intake boots then from the exhaust side while rotating her with ATF, diesel, and gas. The valves are actually sealing again on all but the intakes of #1 cyl. and they're not leaking too awful badly. But I'll know more once I do a leak down.

Wow that is some serious corrosion. I think the other concern you may have is if water sat in the cylinder the bores are probably toast. happened to my 750

Yes sir, I'm hoping that's not the case but we'll find out and if it is then it will have to be addressed sooner than I would like, but more than likely it'll have to be at least bored.

Figured I'd upload few pictures and post a update. The head has cleaned up better than I expected, it's making good vacuum at the intakes when spun over. Got another set of carbs the other day, came off a buddies early 80s model Kawasaki 1000 Police bike. Hated to pull them off such a nice complete bike. They look to be 34mm and are round slide but are in really good shape. I'll use these until I can get the flats slides sorted, only thing is they came with 127.5 mains and 37.5 pilots. I don't have any bigger for those, might have to drill out the jets instead of buying new ones. I'll post some pics of them later couldn't believe they were in such good shape.Went back to where the gixxer came from and found a few more parts. The clutch frictions made it now to find some steels.

Well the carbs I pulled from the Kawasaki Police bike have a little different spacing and the throttle shaft where the cable attaches is a little too close. Got a Yamaha outside I might try it's boots to get them on.

I need a slide, needle, spring and mixture screw for BST 34mm flat slides. I have an old Yamaha the boots on it look to be long enough to get the round slides on, might try those.
