Hey everyone,

Was thinking of going to look at this 93 ZX7 for $2000. Gentleman sent a vid of it running and states it has a "tapping" noise. Said he rebuilt the carbs, compression is good and he rides it daily has 24,000 miles. What could this noise be? And should I avoid this bike?

Here is a link to the video

Thank you to anyone that answers!

When's the last time it had a valve adjustment? In most cases never, but if I remember correctly it's due somewhere around 15,000 miles.

I couldn't hear anything major. Some tapping-like noises can be as simple as an exhaust gasket leak. The price is not bad. You would know better after seeing it in person.
