Hi all, Have a zzr250 '93 with 49000 km. The camshaft has gone, the workshop have charged $350 and it is still having problems idling and revving, they said they can look at it more but it would get expensive (if they have to get in the engine etc) Typical!!!! Anyways I can get a zzr520 '95 w/ 33000km from a friend that has been sitting in his garage for 1.5 years. Seems pretty clean the engine. He wants to charge me $1000 for it. The bike is not registered. IS it better to spend more on the blackhole repair on a stuffed engine or buy this whole bike for $1000 and do an engine change. I have the repair book on hand and my mate has offered to help who can do the repair better than I can. Again I dont want to be wasting money at the workshop and it stuffs up later, i'm on restrictions until july 09 -Then i'm buying a real bike!! But I need fun until then.. I'm dying without my eggbeater bike, It's been at the workshop for 3 weeks. Thanks for your advice!!
