Finally got a bike!

I had my friend ride the out of it on the freeway, sound mechanically wise, rear brake not working like it should, and some low idle problems, but that was about it. So I bought it and we go to his house to get it in the bed of my truck, so I don't have to worry about taking him back home from my house. Ran fine the whole time. I get to my house, get it out of the truck, and that's where the problems began. Looks like I'm gonna have to bypass the clutch safety switch and manually operate the choke lever off the carburetor, since the choke cable is pretty much FUBAR'd. Couldn't even get it started. Oh well. Here's a quick pic.

Anyone have any experience with this bike? It's a 96 RF600R. Is the choke lever located in a place where I could easily operate it with the fairings off? I don't expect to adjust it while moving, I'd let it warm up enough to open the choke before taking off.

Well the choke lever was broken off, so someone ran a cable with a that you pull out, I can't pull the far enough out to close the choke. You have to mess with the clutch lever to get it to crank.

I would take the fairings/tank off and take a quick run through all the lines. When I first got mine, Had some throttle stick. Bought new lines, ran them the right way, and lubed all the other ones. Bad clutch/throttle/brake lines can cause some serious problems.

Sounds like a steal otherwise though! I like it.

I stay near 59 and the beltway, on the SW side. But I'll definitely take you up on your offer. Another thing I've noticed, is when the motor's not running, it won't shift into 1st unless I roll the bike a little bit. Didn't have that problem when it was running. Is that normal? Also, what is the "P" position on the ignition for?

I am off the beltway and Pearland Parkway, almost to 45 on the south side.
Well I figured it stood for park, lol. But what exactly does it do, besides locking the bars?

Depending on the bike, it might turn on the headlight and marker lights without enabling the ignition. I would not leave the key in the P position, it might drain the battery.
