Nice find. Good to hear it started up Ok. Are you planning on rebuild on carbs or good cleaning? Hope inside the tank is as nice as rest of bike. This your first RZ?

Hi there,
Yes my first RZ500, had been into Kawa Triples before this until I got an RZ350 which was so much fun thought I would love the 500 version.
Bought over the internet but seller was very honest and seemed meticulous in what he had done.
The tank is perfect inside and out. Took her out for 20 miles yesterday and she ran like a dream.
Carbs seem spot on, idles around 1300rpm and revs completely through the range and starts first or second kick hot or cold.
I couldn't be more pleased with it....only worrying thing seems to be the mileage 46K km......

Nice H2. The 350 is sharp also. You need some pipe to wake it up. Both of your bike should run like it. Do you think the H2 can run with it with both on stock pipes?

That's a nice collection you have there.

I want to know more about the garage floor. Is that an epoxy coating?
