picked up the bike wednesday

threw in some gas

gave it a shake to mix in the oil coating the inside of the tank

primed the carbs

chucked in the (still original) battery

choked it & hit the starter

didn't even hear it turn over

it fired up instantly http://www.maximumbikes.com/forums/images/smilies/spoton.gif

gotta like that!! http://www.maximumbikes.com/forums/images/smilies/clap_1.gif

checked the tire pressures & lights while it ran 'till the fan came on & off

waited 10 minutes... checked the oil (lovely clean stuff put in in the fall for storage)

loaded it on the truck & headed home

went for a short spin last night

only noticed one thing that needs some fine tuning

MY LEFT FOOT!!! http://www.maximumbikes.com/forums/images/smilies/mut.gif

it's a bit lazy shifting when just putting along http://www.maximumbikes.com/forums/images/smilies/dohx.gif

no prob while riding aggressively though http://www.maximumbikes.com/forums/images/smilies/spoton.gif
