Picked up a complete 1980 KZ440 LTD with nearly complete parts bike on CL for $175. The complete bike IS titled. Pretty good deal I think...
Going for a rat style bob job on it. Not going to dump a ton of money into it. So plans are: paint wheels, new tires, custom pipes, lower shocks or struts... and whatever else it needs.
Bike turns over just fine and has 5,000 miles on the odometer. Not getting any spark due to a bad pickup coil. Ignition coil was tested and is fine and it has a new battery. My KZ400 has the points system, so this electronic ignition biz is new to me.
Question for those who might know:
1) Would it be possible to swap the points system from the parts bike to the 1980?
2) Anybody have a good source for a pickup coil? Having a hard time finding one.
Picture of it when I picked it up:
