Default Everyone say hi to the newbie!

Hey everyone! I picked up an 88 Ninja 750 for $100. It had been sitting for 10 years when the previous owner got it. He cleaned the carbs, new oil, filter, plugs, wires, battery and had it running. He said it ran pretty good, but the carbs were leaking gas, so he took it all apart again. He ordered the parts 2 different times and they kept sending the wrong thing, he got aggrevated, told me he had $100 in it and i could have it for that. I have it now in my garage, carbs off, airbox off, rear sets off, and front calipers off. Im gonna try and put it back together tommow, and see if the stuck parts in the carbs will work themselves loose. If not i will be taking it to the dealer and letting them play with it. I guess we will see what happens!
