I wanna bring this one back to life. I have a neighbor that's a professional race car/performance vehicle mechanic, and when I ran into him in the garage the other day, I started telling him all about my bike and what I was doing to it, how it hadn't been run in two years, and how I was bringing her back to life with all sorts of new fluids and checks.
He asked me if I had turned the engine over yet and I told him no. He suggested marvel mystery oil. He said that some of my valves had been sitting in the open position for two years, and that he thinks it's a good idea to add marvel mystery oil to the list of things I do before I run it.
I finished the oil change last night with mobil 1 syn. 10W40, a new bosche filter, and a new drain plug and washer, and my chain has been degreased and lubed with motul degreaser and lucas chain oil.
Tonight, I'm going to drain the stale fuel and replace it with some fresh shell 91, as well as replace the old air filter with a K&N.
I was just wondering if anyone can chime in with a yay or nay regarding the marvel mystery oil? Or should I just fire her up when I'm done and be good with it?
(I have engine ice coolant and some dot 4 brake fluid I plan on doing later, maybe this weekend or something.)
