I am looking for :

the spare parts list,

Bye,
Benoît.

You can try at Kawasaki's site with the link below. Not sure aout your bike though. When you get to the internet page that I have pictured below, go to the 'parts diagram' button.

Thanks ZX_9r,
With your link the model exist, but the Parts Catalog not available on-line for this 31 years old model ...

a picture is avalible at http://benoit.tourret.free.fr/Kawa/MC1.jpg

For the scale, the rear weel is 14", the front is 16" the carburator is on the right side of the engine, this a rotative disk, like 250 Avenger and 350 Samurai

Bye,
Benoît.

Wow, that bike looks like new yet. You can try @RonAyers, but not sure? If Kawasaki doesn't have, don't know if they will at RonAyers. Go here and select Kawasaki. Otherwise, you may want to try an OEM Service manual?

Its not mine ...[X(]

The rear frame has been bend-up for a bigger rear weel and a longuer rear arm, with a 125 TY fork and front weel. It was her "Trial time"... in the early eighties... [&:]

I have the original parts, I first need to fix the cylinder problem...

for the look, I'm quite sure I'll get the same result, except the Flasher lights, witch are lost.

Bye,
Benoît.
