1979 KZ 650 b
type: dual-sport
condition: good
engine displacement (CC): 650
motor: gas
odometer: 15720
title status: clean
transmission: manual
Strong running bike (until a week ago), 65HP @ 8,000 15,720 miles.
Dog passed of old age & after 10 yrs. of Sunday drives and turning 81, I decided sell after fixing long unused lights. Previous owner wired in blade type fuses to replace glass fuses, and made a real mess. I've managed to botch it up further trying to follow 2 work manuals and original owner's manual wiring charts. I now have a problem - engine starts rough w/ spitting & backfires. The rectifier was getting hot on the backside so I shut it down & threw up my hands. A ton of parts including an exact engine, starters, clutch, transmission, most everything. Parts should give big payback as KZ 650 parts are scarce. Sidecar is American Eagle (with owners manual) and is light weight. Bike is quick off the line but needs experience for right turns as chair will lift. Previous owner had 50 lbs. lead for car weight, but I never used it. Wheel wobble at 25 - 35 which is no problem as other bikes w/ no dampers experience. I have come-alongs and rope for loading, but little muscle to help. Thanks!
