    Default New to me 82 kz 440 (build)

    Hadnt been on this forum for a while due to not having a bike... Finally picked up an 82 kawasaki kz440 about a minth ago... Ive been doing some work to it already... Let me know what you all think...

    Mods so far
    -cut off rear section
    -built some lane splitter handlebars
    -plastidipped wheels
    -side mount license plate
    -70's sportster rear turn signals
    -removed front fender
    -paint job

    Still to come
    -mount white wall rear tire (already have, just needs mounting)
    -order front tire
    -custom exhaust
    -hardtail (maybe)
    -fix issue with carbs (runs perfect for in town but while driving long distances, it stops sending fuel to carbs and turns off)

    Hey man glad to see you back online, Bike looks real sharp.

    Have you messed with the carbs? could be jets or maybe a ground wire? My sporty had a broken ground wire that wouldnt move too much in stop n go traffic but when I would ride to harlingen cut off on me every now and then.

    Could be an easy fix.

    Very nice man, I am looking to swap the headlight on my blast to a Street Fighter Fairing thing, designed a Tail section I need to bug Joel about building for me, and still need to remove two stripped screws from my carb, Have been working on my moms Jag and got that up and running good yesterday (Drove to the Mall and Back home to make sure it wouldnt self destruct on me)
