I have not had the carb rebuilt yet but that is my next step. Something I have been having for over a year now.
I found a Clymers manual for mine on EBAY for about $20.00.
Tereich, how detailed, descriptive and explanative is that Clymer's manual you bought? I have an OEM Kawasaki Owner's, Service Manual and Service Manual Supplement and sometimes I feel even these are limited as far as details, descriptions, photos, charts and explanations etc. since the OEM manuals have been translated from Japanese. Thus, there are missing references here and there but all in all they require a person to see beyond the words and use the bike itself to discover things that are not covered completely or missed entirely in the manuals. Not all things but I've noticed a few so far.
try this link for the OEM Kawasaki Manuals:
They are expensive though and sometimes you can find good quality used ones on eBay if you search hard and strike fast enough. I just got tired of looking and paid extra to get NEW PRISTINE CONDITION ones.
