hey new n00b right here, need help

Hey wats up guys... my names drew and im from olney, md and my friend just gave me a 1991 zx-1000r in parts and i am just lookin to learn about it so i can get it runnin again, im all about performance so give me tips on that and i need general specs (hp etc). it looks like this site has a crap load of info so im just looking for a couple tips... im not a n00b to engines so u can talk about parts and ill kno what ur talking about (if u got a ford escort i can tell u a crap load about suping them up). this is just my new toy and im wondering how to get er started again. so wats stock hp, torque, weight, etc? also what are easy performance mods?

Good luck on your rebuild. Unfortunately I can't give you any advise on your 91. My suggestion is to part it out and use the money to buy an 08. If this is your first bike get the new 250 or nice 600. What ever you choose to do, your in the right place.

Easiest thing to do to get info is to use the search function. Should be a lot of good info there.

I don't know if you have one, but here's a link to a repair manual for your bike. It will probably come in handy.


Yeah... it's like that!
