Looking to get some minor work done on my zx9. Might have some bad gas in the lines that needs cleaning out. Just don't want to get ripped off. Any suggestions. Im in NVa. Thanks

You could do it your self. What makes you think you have bad gas lines? ZX nine has carbs right? You leave gas in it untreated over the winter?

Well drain it all out, time to get your hands dirty Carburetors might be gummed up, I would get some carb cleaner drain all the old gas and lines. Does it crank over? Add some fresh gas see if you can get it to start.

I agree drain the old gas out of the tank and carbs put some new in and see what happens. Cleaning carbs aren't to difficult.

How long has the bike been sitting with the gas in it? Does it run? If it does not start or run be prepared to spend around 600 bucks. It ain't cheap but a shop will pull the carbs apart clean them and flush all the old fuel out and change the fuel filter.
