Long Sleep

Postby popawalker » Wed Jun 01, 2016 5:39 am



My 2000 SE has sat for 2 years, I had intended to rebuild the carbs and replace the timing belt when I pulled it into the garage with 98,000 miles on it. Things got in the way and now I want to get it back road worthy. I know I'll have to empty the gas tank, I'll also be changing the brake and clutch fluid along with new tires. Is there anything else I will need to do with it?
Thanks for the help.
Steve

If you wanna go all out,replace every bit of fluid in the bike,lube the drive shaft coupler when you replace the rear wheel.Use balancing beads in new tires.
Throw on a new set of timing belts while your down there changing the fork oil.
Are the carbs still a issue?What about the vacuum lines?
Don't leave it to me :lol: I'd have you working on it for the next month.
