    to properly repair the cracks and not have to worry about them coming back or getting worse, youll need to and down the cracked area to get as much of the crack out as possible, then get some epoxy resin and some cloth, add several layers overlapping the entire cracked area by a few inches,then sand down and repaint.

    if that filler you used isnt made for smc, it most likely wont hold. the vintage kawasakis are made of sheet molded compound or SMC and require very clean sanded surface and epoxy based fillers or resins. if the filler you used works with smc then you should be ok.

Also got a fiberglass repair kit and layed one layer of fiberglass on the cracks I have. Plan to add one more layer to make sure it’s solid.

    got a 650 motor with a stock pipe, still need a different carb because I don't want to run the 28mm carb it came with. Got everything needed for the conversion, just need to make a bracket to mount up the 650 electronics. For paint, I'm thinking royal blue on the top deck and maybe some graphics.

    Finally got it painted. Now it’s time to clear coat it and put it back together. Looking for a good conversation prop and carb setup. Have parts to trade.
