Welcome and thanks for the pic! Sweet bike!

Give her some love before you put her cover over her. She'll appreciate it.

I noticed the fuel tap is in the ON/RES position. If you find the bike flooded while starting, it's common to build in the routine of turning the tap to OFF 1/8th mile before parking it for extended periods. It's a fuel expansion hydraulic thing. You'll save your cylinders from getting the oil washed off the cylinder walls, you'll save fuel lost unnecessarily, and the bike will be easier to start the next time. ;)

Welcome. sounds like that could be a bargain. Can't see form the picture ... but if the calipers are 6 pots, save yourself some time & money on 6 pot seals ... just buy some 4 pot calipers. I did 6 pot seals on mine, still didn't like the brakes, ended up buying 4 pots. .. so the 6 pot service kit was a waste of money.

Thanks mate are the callipers interchangeable with the 4 pots from a srad 750 when i was messing with old gsxr 750/1100 slingshots i seem to remember folkes fitting 6 pot kawasaki callipers so would imagine they should fit vice versa

Yes, certain years of certain Suzuki models. Bandit, probably some GSX-R. And some Triumph ones too (some will say "Triumph" on the caliper). There's plenty of posts on the subject, use the search at the top right of the page.
