Kaw Repairs

After doing the carbs and getting excited about how well it ran, I decided to get down to some serious stuff.  The shifter rod seal is going out and it leaks oil, slowly but still leaks.  The fork seals also leak.  I was able to find diagrams of every componant of the bike and how its assembled along with part numbers for everything.  This site kawasakipartshouse was a super find.  For under $150 I was able to order all the seals and gaskets for both the transmission and front forks.  Can't beat that for an old bike!  I started pulling the transmission chain cover off to get an idea of how bad things were underneath.  OMG it was awful, awful, awful.
