Picked this 1978 KZ200 up today cheap.   It'll be a winter tinker thing.   Factory manual on the way.  I know some of these ended up with top end oiling issues.  I'll check that first.  Should be a fun little bike.

I might also recommend seeing how far you can throw that front caliper, and however far that is, it won't be anywhere near as far as it'd take you to stop at walking speed actually using the caliper as originally intended

A lot of people comment

I tell them to go f*** themselves

Haha..   Yeah, cable actuated caliper, weird.  I think I have a different setup for it already off one of my other old kz's.

Nothing fancy... Old Harbor Freight lid crapped out. Found this one online on clearance. Not high end by any means but it'll work for me.
