    Default Kz440 build

    This is my first build. I got the bike from a guy who had already started cutting on it to prep for a hardtail but his progress stopped abruptly somewhere in the middle of it. I picked it up for $200. A friend at school (Motorcycle Mechanics Institute) hooked me up with the sporty tank. Its got some rust inside so I'll need to clean it out real good. The carbs will most likely need rejetted for when I add the pod filters. The whole frame, engine, triple clamps, forks, and wheels were painted silver before I got it so I gotta sand the whole thing down and repaint. Well, here she is, I'm kind of at a stand still b/c of money issues but its getting done little by little.

    440's are awesome. Powerfull little package, 6 speed, air cooled. A lot were belt drive, even.
    Good luck
