Hi all .
I have bought a XZ550 that has been worked on by a idiot. carbs are all wrong and missing a lot of body parts.
hope I can get her going again, as I have never seen one on the road. Lots of work ahead, but that is what i like.

Hi Mark, welcome to the fold. You have quite the stable on bikes there but you will be challenged by the Vision. We all now rely greatly on a diminishing supply of used parts. Have you a service manual. It will help greatly in determining what you need. Anyway, good luck and happy hunting.
