My wife Kari got a new bike this week. It is a 1982 Kawasaki KZ250CSR. Picked it up for cheap, wasn't running when I got it. The previous owner told me that they had the carbs cleaned twice on it and still never got it to run right. After some digging around it turned out that when they cleaned the carbs there is a little rubber plug that goes in the carb and it was missing. I plugged it with something that I had lying around the garage and the bike has been running like a dream ever since.
I think it is time to buy her some real riding gear.
