Just like the little Suzuki, the Kawasaki had been fighting me for many months. It ran initially way back when, but then had a sporadic spark. Turns out it just needed a condenser. So after soldering a new one in, and installing a new set of point, it fired up to life. Awakening the entire neighborhood (it was 1pm) and keeping the mosquitoes at bay for another year. I forgot how damn loud it is without a muffler. I guess I know what my next project will be, building a muffler.
