Hey guys, good to finally join the list! I've been a browser for a while, and I just bought my 2nd GPZ!
I'm Alan, and I'm from Livonia, Michigan. I'm 26, and finally getting into the motorcycle scene! I currently own a 1996 GPZ 1100 with 26,000 miles, and a barn queen 1995 GPZ 1100 with 2800 miles. I bought the latter one off of Chris Marquis yesterday. It's a fantastic runner, and just needs some cosmetic work. My 96' is the reason I bought the 95'. I bought it as a project, and I'm about to light it on fire! It runs fantastic, but ALWAYS stalls when coming to a stop. It starts and idles perfect, until you hold the RPM's above 3000 for more than 5 seconds, and then let off of the gas. So, I'm going to be swapping parts, and finding out what's causing the problems on the 96'. I've had 3 master mechanics look at it, rebuild the carbs, re-jet it, Micron full exhaust, and sync'd them, and it doesn't make a difference. Hopefully I can figure it out soon!!! Oh, I'll make a separate post on the parts I need for the 95'. I'm going to be selling the
96' when I figure out what's wrong with it and fix it. :)
Good to be on the list, and hope to be here for a while! I love these bikes!
Oh yeah, did I mention I bought my 96' for an unbeatable price, and it came with handlebar risers, a corbin seat, original Kawasaki hard bags, a cover, the original seat, full service history, and brand new tires? :D
