New plugs and a spritz of premix in the carbs.

Oh and we need a video of this procedure. (In case there's some cool fireworks)

Running means start it up and ride away. Of course aside from any legal technicalities.

DAMNIT. I was going to follow Al Tuna's advice and blow myself up trying to get a quick 150 points. Looks like I'll need to address the brakes first

Thank you kind sir!
I feel like it might take a bit, but at some point we've got to see
who's is best off road, or maybe a hill climb or somehting.
I'm sure we'll be calling on ya!

Whoot! Alright, one for everybody.


Now I'm a little curious as to why,
from 1970-70 the 250s and 350s have the same manual and
from 1965-1979 the 250s and 400s and lumped together.

Drum brakes suck but are easy to repair.

And aftermarket manuals are made to confuse and sell parts.

It's 250 through 400, not 250 and 400

Tell me about it!
God damn, $40 a caliper for a rebuild kit which doesn't include a piston (am I going to need a new one?)
$60 for pads
Rear MC kit is $89
Front MC is $85 but shit!
Do I really have to spend like $300 just to get the brakes in order?!

I wanted an RZ for soooo long.
Finally figured I'd have more fun hopping up an RD.
