Bikes been in storage for 3 years... advice on a starting procedure!?
Soo my bike has been in storge for over 3 years now and was NOT winterized, nor any preventive maintenance, and id like to hear some thoughts on things to do and/or watch out for. I guess ill provide some specifics to let yah know what im workin with.
Got a lil story as to why ive been sperated from my baby for so long. So its a 2005 ZX6R w/ Full Akrapovic, revalved w/ racetech, PC3, Ignition module, k&n, custom billet cams (very trick$$$) along with 20 other common mods and put down 129whp @ 60°F 300ft elev. So i was 18 and has this monster of a 636 and decided to run form the cops, which i had done 50 times before, and i got away. Sweet. Well my girlfriend was with her drug addict friend when this happened and i called her to pick up the bike from where i was and got pulled over. Her friend had no problem tellin the po where they were headed with a lift gate equipped truck and tie straps after the office saw the blunt roach in the ashtray. Needless to say i found another way home and that c word agreed to testify against me in court. After bad counsel i was found quilty and hid the bike til they stopped asking for it lol.
While it was at my buddys shop the place caught fire. Over 1.5 million in damages including 3 rz350s, a few dirtbikes, standups, and few ducati monoposts. My bike was the only thing to survive, i mean only thing, his 80ton ironworker was twisted like a pretzel. So i brought the bike to a local police staion (ironic) where moms bf worked and has sat since. I did not do any preventive maintiance, had a full tank of gas, and fresh oil but was just put away wet.
Now i plan to flush the tank and maybe give each cylinder a lil squirt of penetrating oil and maybe replace brake fluid, and pump up the tires but anyone have any other advice or things to check before i go to ride this thing.
And yes i know im an asshole for running but hey, i learned from this one. Dont wanna lose my licence for 3 years again. Ill be joining NJMP track to get off. Already got the leathers and cant wait to look like a fool on Lightning!
