Cool Just got a bike!

I just bought a 91 Bandit. It looks amazing the only problem is that it needs a little work but its all good. I was wondering if anyone knows someone or is familiar with a 91 bandit? I was told it needed some carb work. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance everyone!

At the moment it's not rideable. Well it's having trouble starting up. Ill attempt to start it and it will crank but only for a few seconds. I was refered to motorcycle unlimited they said they can work on it.

Is this the red bandit 400 that mariano (someone on here) was selling? If so I wanted that bike so bad...

GL on the bike! Be safe!
