Glad you got it going !

It's up to you if you want to clean the engine out you can put in a cheap 10w40 oil minus a pint and put in a pint of "MMO" Marvel Mystery Oil and run it easy for 150 mile shifting alot and then drain it and put in a good 10W40 Oil! Unless you live in 110 degrees, like Phoenix you really don't need 20W50 with a radiator bike!

Make sure the anti-freeze is "Silicate free" ther's alot info about it on this web site just use search (coolant or anti-freeze)!

A good 80w-90 gear oil will do fine, some guys run synthetic Oil and Syn Gear Oil, that works too!

Tires may have a slight flat spot from sitting, you'll know when you ride it!

Can get a exhaust gasket "Generic" from Napa or other place to maybe help that leak out, usually they just need tightening a little, not too much!

They may have gone through the carbs but have them out of Sync!?

Make sure your "Vacuume hoses are not off or loose or cracked (Vacuume advance etc)?

Make sure the air filter isn't clogged, may have been over looked?

Didn't mention if it has new plugs?

Make sure choke isn't sticking on a little!

Have fun Bro ! Pete:clapper:
