Yup, not a runner, but the price was right. Well it would fire but stall within seconds and fuel was pouring out the overflow, ya for stuck float valves!
It has, like most barn finds, spent some time in storage with old gas in the carb. Judging buy the build up I found in the carb bowl, I would say it sat for close to one year.
My freind scored a bucket of carb/parts cleaner from work last night. The carb is getting dissasembled and cleaned tonight. Of course our carb has already ben tampered with I notice the brass plug is already drilled out and the plastic choke cable fatener thing is gone. So, now i have to find a way to secure the choke to the carb.
Things coming in the mail so far: via EBAY.....FTW
1. New brake and clutch levers.
2. new choke lever for left handlebar control, from KLR650
3.new throttle tube for a 96 KLR 250...hope it works.
4. UNI dual stage filter
hopefully this stuff will arrive shortly and we can start reassembly.
Cam stopped at cycle accesories last night:
1. renthal grips
2. new NGK spark plug
While we are waiting for these parts to arrive we will be doing a lot of grinding sanding and painting! hope to clean the frame up real nice
