Smile Howdeeee! From Burntfox

Howdy, yall!
I was sent here by Squoddybody, she is a coworker and I consider her a good friend.
I have came here as I have been gifted by the motorcycle "Gawds" with a 2001 ZX11 Ninja. As many of you know this bike was the last year of the ZX11. Unlike many used bike I am very intimate with its history as it was my Father in laws, it has aprox 11K on it. It's in rough condition as last time it was rode was 2009. Since then it has had a carport fall on it because a limb fell on on the carport. Fortunately, it only got a few minor scratches and a small tear in the seat, thanks to how the support beam landed.
This leads to the next year, when the same tree, dropped another branch on it, this time it tore several spots in the seat, and put some lovely character marks on the tank. All the fairings/bodywork are in great shape, tank has some rust spots and dents, new seat is on its way, as well as the quadcarb off a wrecked 97' ZX11(for the price I could not pass it up and having a spare carb for any bike is never a bad idea imho). I have wrenched on Harley's with my brother over the years, but never worked on water cooled bikes let alone a hyperspeed bike like this one. I aint skeered to bust my knuckles and get my hands dirty. This being said I will be asking for much help as I get this beast back up an roadworthy (also getting myslef back on two wheels again is something I look forward to). So bear with me and I appreciate all the help that I know i will get.

Thank you,
Burntfox

You should cut that down, just out of spite.
