Thanks for the advice guys. I actually just took the covers off the bottom last night and pointed the hose from the carb cleaner into the jets and sprayed it a few times.

On the one corner near the gasket there was some buildup (the bike was ran for a while but then sat for about 4 months not being ridden). I cleaned it all out of there real good.

I'm going to just get all new fuel and put it in today and see if she fires up.


Should I fill the tank all the way and should I dump STA-BIL (fuel stabilizer) in it (since it's winter)? Also, once I dump it in, should I run it for a while and just shut it back off or should I leave it run, turn the petcock to OFF and let it run out of fuel on its own until it stops running?
