What going on everyone?
Let me start by giving a little background of my situation and what I am looking to do.
Back in 2007 I ended up blowing ther main fuse underneath the seat on the bike but did not know it until about a year later. See my wife and I were going through some very tough times financially and we didn't have the money to get the bike running and spend to get it right. After sitting for so long, I opened up the fuel tank and realized that it was rusted on the inside. So I broke down the bike and took off the fuel tank and pump. I determined that neither one was good, so I have just bought a new tank and pump from a board bro... (Thanks Dean) Now that my wife and I are in a more stable financial situation, I am going to do what I have wanted to do for years. Fix it and get it back on the road. Now I already have planned to do a oil change, new plugs, and also a radiator flush. I am also replacing my chain because the original one is just rusty and nasty and needs to be done. Here's my questions:
With the bike sitting for so long, should I take the fuel rails and clean them out? What do you suggest I use to clean them with? I would assume that this is needed to be done, just not sure how to go about it.
What other things should I look to do as I go through this process? The bike has been broken down in my garage for a year. All the fairings are off, and I basically have a frame, motor and wheels. What type of oil, plugs etc do you suggest?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
