ZX600D Engine Rebuild. Need Advice
So not many know but my bike spun a bearing (at least I think it was a bearing.) i recently bought a 93 ZX6 with 21k miles, the bike had been sitting in someones garage since 2010. I took it home and got the bike going within a week. 51 miles and a few burnouts later, the engine starts knocking... I change the oil and sure enough, theres a few metal shavings.
So now Im faced with getting another bike or rebuilding this engine. I dont want to get another used bike with god knows what problems its gonna bring. I also dont want to dish out $$$ for a newer, 0/low mile bike so I really want to rebuild this engine. The problem is that I have zero experience with motorcycle engines. Im used to SBCs and Honda Civics. I have been looking around the internet for rebuild kits and I see that Kawasaki parts are not as plentiful as i thought they were (for this old Kawi i mean.)
So my questions to you guys is:
How much should my budget be to rebuild the bottom end?
Where can I get parts for this engine?
Is there any good info (articles, books, etc.) on how to rebuild this engine?
Is there anyone in South Florida that does good work for a reasonable price?
Thanks in advanced!
