Buy it. That's a good deal on a low mileage truck that will last a long time.

The last one I had took me cross-country thrice without a problem and the first one I owned did it eight times.  All had more than 200k miles on them at the time.  The last did it at 296k miles on the clock.  I got two grand for it and it was an '89.

The 22r is arguably one of the best engines ever made.

Drive on,

I ride the 405 LB to Tustin each day. They took away the median that provided riders space to flow through traffic. Everything is now packed tighter together. It's threading needles for 22 full miles each day. In 35 years of riding, I'd only come in contact with a car once. I have three times in a month with this new freeway configuration. And that is now on the 22 and will be throughout So Cal.
Now implicit in the three bumps I've shared with some cars lately is that the problem must be me. The landscape has changed and I haven't changed how traverse it. Most important is patience. That cagers are going to inattentive asshats is a given. I can't control that. So I must address me. The biggest adjustment needed is not in how I sit in the saddle or blip the throttle. The space between my ears is the problem. The last few days, I've paid closer attention to how I'm feeling being squeezed in so tight with cars. By paying attention to my own head, I'm catching my own temper and am able to check it. I've not had any close calls in a few days now. I will need to continue to refine this as, again, all So Cal freeways will eventually become like the 405 and 22.       

^ That.

We adjust, because we must.

Glad you all had a good ride.  Wish I could have been there.

Ride on,

Yeah... 

People are like that.  I still get it from all sides here just like I did out there.  At least some people care enough to say something.  Even if it's only to make themselves feel better.

Glad to see you going there.  (I'm a tad heavy myself these days.)  If you did it before, then you can do it again!

Best of luck,

J~

Pics and video are expected.

Yeah, it's great to be back on two, Todd.  Here it's like living on GMR/GRR and Ortega without the crowds.  I do miss my friends, though...

Looks like a good meal from a good day on the water!  Glad that you're doing well.

Ride on,

I picked up a new ride a few weeks ago.  She's been a fun project and runs and rides very well!  Before and after pics below.

It seems that I care a lot less about the bike these days than where it takes me.

Nice work, Todd.  If I were closer I'd have you do some stuff for the Ninja.

I'd be in for the next one if I was still out there.  Stay safe and have fun!

Have you searched the thumper forums for the problem?  Chances are someone else has been there.

Yup, I've been searching all the forums, youtube, etc..... It appears to be a jetting issue, and honestly feel like I don't know the concepts well enough to really troubleshoot it. I feel like I'm just blindly guessing right now. I put the stock jetting back and now it won't idle without choke but I can apply throttle fine. It just seems like I can't get the right "jetting ratio."

Wow.  Sorry that there's nothing out there on it. 

I'd be suspicious of the airbox seals and air filter as vacuum is a huge factor when dealing with carbs. No vacuum, no fuel when you give it gas.  I'm restoring another Ninja and it had the same problem.  A badly installed K&N was causing it.

Keep us posted on what it is.

Luck,

J~

^ Buy that, then get in touch with RD Todd.  Buy him a six pack and he'll teach you how.

Chase-Harper makes the best.  If you keep the area between the plastics and straps clean, they won't rub much.  I think they make a easy-peel stick-on clear film that you can put on the plastics to prevent damage.
