I'm enjoying my 98 ZG1000 except I had to pull the fuel tap assy that sprung a leak on me while going to work. Yes I smelled like gas until the boss sent me home to change. Not a great way to find out that valve is going bad. However, $65 replaces the whole valve. Didn't want to chance a rebuild kit on it.

I still have it torn down, any preventative maintenance tips before I put it all back together?

Garage
Been on two wheels of some sort since I was 12 years old (57 Now) owned everything from dual purpose bikes to Vulcans to Goldwings, wouldn't trade my Connie for any of them.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

I hate touring bikes.

I especially am not a fan of the looks of the 1998 zg1000.

Most of all it irks me to see a hundred luggage cases attached to the sides, back, middle, front of a bike. Get a convertible! lol

Below is a link to a 2011 thread for the 2006 Concours:

A Mostly Biased Review of the Kawasaki Concours (1986-2006) by Elvin Rivera

“Banking institutions have banished precious metals and substituted a more fluctuating and unsafe medium; they have withdrawn capital from useful improvements and employments to nourish idleness for the few, who prefer demoralizing pursuits to labors useful to the whole; the peace of the whole is endangered by evils more easily to be deplored than remedied." by Thomas Jefferson,1810 (edited)
