The Dragon Lady of Texas sends an update.

Little Sister is resurrecting a 1980 KZ 650 that has been sitting for 10 years.
She sent me some update info and progress pictures for
the "Dragon Lady".

Tear down and inspection of the carbs.

Old fuel that has turned to sticky gunk!

Tear down complete. She didn't tell me how many screw
heads she stripped or mangled.
(My average is about 2 per float bowl.)

Damage report:
One areation tube busted. Time to find a replacement carb body.
JB Weld won't help here.

What's missing in this picture?
Oh Yeah, the tips to the A/F Mixer Screws on the right.
Good luck getting those out and not fucking up the seats.
That's all for now.
Thanks, for the updates Little Sister, keep them coming.
