    I can't get these flecks to show up in pictures but they're not bad at all. It's a new cover never mounted so the tabs are all 100%and shiny chrome. Price is $50.00 shipped to any member.

    Sorry for no reply. I drove from my home town in Knoxville up to Chicago to buy that black ZL1000 with 6100 miles on her. The side cover will need to be replaced for sure however at this time a have a number of other things that must be addressed first namely the bike's engine is so gummed up its only getting gas to the #4 cylinder. It looks like I'll have to pull the carb rack and give it a complete overhaul.

    :hello: You should snatch up that air box cover anyway. Rick from oldskoolcarbs has a special on carb rebuilding for $165. Buy time you buy all new parts, all new SS allen cap screws & such you wouldn't be saving much. For one set of carbs I spent $35 on just hardware & about $90 on OEM parts.
