Got the "nickel plated" emulsion tubes in the other day. Regular worn out brass ones. Emulsion tube pics from the ad below. Can't say they look brass in those pics. Seller was cool with returning. Ordered stock ones for a 89+ FZR1000. They were $15 a piece plus shipping. There should not be $10 shipping on something small enough to ship with stamps.

Fun fact: If you need a slide diaphragm Suzuki will sell just the diaphragm for a DR650, which uses same carb, for $20~ rather than the whole slide for close to $200.

The vac ports for synching the carbs were capped with electrical tape and sections of hose. One hose plugged with a bolt and zip tie. Ok. The other hose plugged with a piece of plastic shopping bag. Hmm. Ok? Vac caps can be had at any parts store. They aren't one off OEM parts. See odd stuff used for plugs a lot and can only wonder.

Speaking of vac caps, the rubber bit on the end of the tank prop was shot and I replaced it with an appropriate sized vac cap!

Shaking my fist at the clouds while waiting for parts. Haha

Got seat in the mail. Installed tool kit. Ha. Installed seat cowl onto new seat. That thing is an incredible hassle. Sheesh. Never taking off again unless for paint or replacement with a carbon fiber version. Passengers can skip on down the road.

Of course the seat got damaged during shipping. Indicative of a puncture type incident rather than a tear. The cracks, about five, radiate out from a central point like a web. Trying out some clear Permatex vinyl repair that comes in a tube for around five bucks. Currently drying right now. Will update when it cures.

Got blinkers in. 2000+ versions for $15 plus shipping. Tried to use the correct year square style ones but the only Comp Werkes tail kit that came with the blinker brackets was for 2000 and up. Funnily enough these blinkers came with Comp Werkes brackets on them. Go figure. If anyone needs a set lemme know. The oval ones go better with lines of the bike as well in my opinion.

One issue I ran into with the later model kit is you can't use the blinker brackets in their intended locations. Comp Werkes mentions they don't make a kit for the 93-99 and you have to do some cutting and fitting with a later one. Issue is that the seat lock takes up a lot of real estate compared to later models and the left side blinker bracket would need a major work around. I ended up installing brackets under the tail using the existing seat lock bolts. The aggressive tail chop ended up working in my favor since the blinkers would not have fit otherwise. Blinkers also help hide the chop. Will try to plug the frame eventually but was cut on an angle so the conventional plugs won't work. Running seat lock cable down frame and comes out near shock for now. Planning to install the stock lock in the undertail somewhere.

Shot the belt covers with a prime/paint in one type paint. Should dry to a satin finish. Belt covers seem to be a different color depending on the day of the week they were made from what I've seen so I'm fine with this color. Closest I could find that was near factory color. The valve and cam covers high heat paint came out nice. Pretty close to stock engine color.

Thanks! Saved a few bikes so far. Always fun bringing old bikes back.
