Hi all,

Since I can't post in the FAQ section yet and cant find an answer to this question, I will post it here.

I am bringing home an old barn find this week. It has been sitting for at least a couple years, although have been told that it was cranked over and started last year but not for any length of time.

It is a 1985, model unknown at this time.

My question is this: What is the logical and prudent sequence I should follow to slowly and safely bring this bike up that would not cause any damage. What I mean is something along the lines of..
step one, drain and replace the fuel,
step 2 replace the fuel/air/oil filter
check this for condensation
squirt some oil into the here
let it set for x amount of time
then crank it up
adjust the carbs...etc etc

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton

Welcome to the forum Rik. The Technical forum is where to post this. The FAQ forum is just for admins to move useful posts into. The moderators will likely move this to the tech forum for you later.
