Neglected and Squided 99 M900S Budget Build
Located stock gold and silver gas cap. Swapped lock cylinder over. $18 shipped.
Located seat lock assembly, key side. Will shuffle tumblers or remove if necessary and fab up new location for lock somewhere eventually. $12 shipped.
Located right carbon fiber heat shield for exhaust to replace a cracked one, stock tool kit, stock tail light and four stock blinkers for $70 shipped.
PO never did service in the 16 years he had it and mentioned the person he bought it from, Mr. Squid, never did service either. Would not be surprised if it currently has the factory belts.
Pulled carbs. Red clay colored silt in bottom of carb bowls. Otherwise decently clean inside. All seals need to be replaced. Purchased viton seal kit from LiteTek for $29 shipped. Have used before and they are quality seals. Have experience with this type of carb since a version of these are also used on the FZR1000. Knew emulsion tubes would need replacement due to mileage. Typically wear out around 12k - 15k since these were the first down draft carbs to be mass produced and that's their design flaw. I usually just buy new stock ones for $15 but my prefered site was down so went to ebay to find some new ones there. Was looking to free shipping and similar price but stumbled on some used Factory Pro nickel plated emulsion tubes that don't wear out. Snapped up for $14 each shipped. If you need emulsion tubes and don't want to spend $75 for the pair from Factory Pro just get some new ones for 89 and up FZR1000s. They are good for 12k - 15k and are typ $15 each new.
