100% agreed. When you say "previous 7-10 years" do you mean 74-77 or 2010-now? Just wondering if they made them LESS packed over time? I have a set of new jets coming in for the bike and I am not looking forward to dealing with them.

Yeah I meant the earlier bikes were way easier. Later inline 4's probably aren't as bad either. I think the Honda v4's really took the cake as far as the carbs being a pain to work on lol

I had an 02VFR800, it didn't have carbs but just changing the plugs required pulling the tank and 1/2 the body work off the bike.  Let alone when I had to sync the throttle bodies (might as well have been carborated).  I'll never own another Honda V4 again, and i'll really never own another VTec bike again.  There is an issue when its truly worth paying someone 800 just to check your valves.

All that being aside,

I want a 87-90 GSXR 750



or an 89-92 ZX7



So everyone please start keeping an eye out for me.

or a 91-93 CBR900RR (I could never afford this unless I got lucky)

I'll bet thats been for sale along time too, thats way way way more than its worth.  Not that they are not going up in value some but I should be able to find one in good condition for 2k.

I'm 100% with you. Been watching like a hawk on CL. My VF500F was only $700, which is MUCH more appealing.

Yep, way high.  I'm window shopping for these kind of bikes all the time.

Here is what irritates me.  BS CL ads like this one.  One line description, perfect bike, completely bs low price.

If thats legit I would buy that in a second and pay to ship it.  Are you near el paso?? Anymore is to scary to try and buy and have someone else ship both sides thinks the other is scamming them.

JDM bikes are super appealing to me, but parts for them are soooo much $$
