Klr 600 1984

Hi all
Just bought a klr 600 1984 model as a restoration project.
Done a re spray in original colours , waiting for decals to finish off.
Bike was a total pig to start when I got it ( kickstart only model).checked electrics , corroded , cleaned them and ok . Stripped down carburetor and found that the choke was only opening to one third . Bingo I thought , adjusted cable so it opened fully and it now starts on second kick.
Haven't had my first ride out yet as paint job isn't quite complete . Looking forward to re living my youth on a trail bike
