Thanks Paul for the response. I ended up getting one from Julian here on the list. 
I talked to the machinist today and he seems to think that he can save the crank but the rod is 
too far gone. Does anyone have a good used rod that they want to part with? $110ish bucks for a 
rod seems a little steep to me.

They still sell a GPz service manual: This link is to a 1995 manual from Kawasaki. Browse around the site if you need a 1996 manual.

I'm having a heck of a time finding a service manual for our bikes. Does anyone have a good link or p/n so I can purchase one? (I need torque specs for putting my engine back together...:) ) I was finally able to tear down the engine and found that my #3 rod bearing spun... hopefully I can save the crank and rod.... I'm sending it out to the machine shop tomorrow or tuesday... wish me luck. I was looking at new bearings to order and they are all color coded i.e. blue, black, white or brown. Am I correct in assuming that the colors are for different sizes? if so, Which are which? I'm sure that I'll need an undersize bearing set for this #3 crank journal if available... any thoughts? anyone been down this road before and have any tips or tricks? Thanks again, Ben
