Today I picked up a 2001 ZL 800 ESR with 1000 original miles on it. Sled just had the drive shaft bearing replaced by the dealer about 200 miles ago so that's in good shape and the original owner had a 1.5 inch paddle track installed when the sled was new.

Next Steps this summer

  • Install 0704-886 0704-887 springs from 03 Pantera to stiffen it up and help prevent any sag
  • Shim and clean power valves to hopefully smooth idle. Is there a guide for this?
  • Top end recall was never done in 03 so replace pistons and rings with OEM parts
  • Powermadd Seat Wedge
  • Handle bar riser to match - How high can I go without cable issues? I was thinking 6 inch if possible
  • Replace fuel lines
  • Clean Tank
  • Clean Clutches
  • Lean out the mains one size from factory (I am just above Sea Level)
  • Replace the plastic washers on the throttle for the TSS
Anything else I should work on before next season? First sled I have had with flat slide carbs... anything special I should know?

Anyone know if a hood vent kit from a 00 ZR will fit this sled?


Thanks for the tip, I think I will replace all the bushings in the clutch so I know I am starting fresh.
