Good morning from England.

Post by Stompbox »

Hi - I've just joined the forum - thanks for accepting me.

I have ridden bikes for many years, but not much recently. I saw a 1988 bllt drive Kawasaki GPZ305 belt drive up for sale recently for a very modest price which is complete, but needs a fair amount of work, but I've taken it on.

The cam chain has snapped, and one of the gudgeon pins has seized in the little end, so I've got the engine out and am waiting for a secondhand crankshaft assembly, cam chain & a piston - arriving any day now.

I've attached a photo of the bike as it arrived and one of the engine now "split" ready to fit the new crank assembly....

Wish me luck!

Welcome to Australia, Stompbox.

The name, Stompbox, brings British punk to my mind. Probably nothing to do with punk though!
