Hey folks. I'm now a fully fledged member of the ZL owners fraternity. Yesterday I bought a ZL600 from Dan Mcglynn who is or was a member of this forum I think. Only cost £300 but I had to get carbs from elsewhere, though two sets were only £60 and one of them originally lived on this bike anyway. Okay, now for a technical question, or maybe two. When I bought it I was set on getting it regardless so I overlooked one fault I think I've found. Thing is, now I don't know if it's a major one. When I checked the gear lever and tried to click it down and then up there was nothing there. No click, no resistance. I don't know if the gear selector forks, if that's what it has, whether they're knackered or something else may be wrong. Of course without being able to run the engine I don't know what it is and whether something was just sticking due to the bike being stood a while. If it looks like it is knackered, then I'll source a replacement engine or just see if I can mend it. The engine is probably coming out of the frame anyway as I want to strip it down and make sure it's all 100% solid and it may get a fresh coat of paint. Also, pod filters. What's the verdict? It's not like there isn't thousands of bikes happily running around with them fitted. Of course I'd get the engine professionally set up with them on. As it is, I don't have an air filter box anyway, so I don't see the point in trying to get one. And besides, aren't they supposed to be a bit of a twat to refit anyway?
