The entire area under the carb/intake was saturated. Rolled it out of the garage and tried to crank it out of morbid curiosity and it spun over once and hydro-locked. Yay, the "failed vacuum petcock" issue.

So now I have a cylinder filled with gas, oil that is contaminated with gas, and a petcock that has to be replaced, and no time to do it. At least it's non-ethanol.
Sounds just like my 4wheeler, but it was ethanol!!!

You reckon it will hurt anything any worse to leave it sitting until Saturday?
no. i would go ahead and pinch off the fuel line or take the tank off so it doesn't keep poring gas in there and maybe if you can get to it take the plug out and clear the cylinder, but the gas in the oil wont hurt a thing, as long as you don't crank it up.

either ethanol or non ethanol gas, left sittin, is bad on . i've starting adding marvel mystery oil, or 2 stroke oil, or sta-bil to non ethanol fuel. and run carb dry with petcock off.

Anti, drain oil when you can. run it a while and change it again. good luck and holler if you need help

Bike had an oil change Dec 30 and fresh gas on New Year's Day. Stays on a battery tender. No signs of a problem until Sunday.

But yes, it does sit too long, which is why it's for sale.

Looks good. That style will look really sharp on the Tiger. And plastic bags are so much better than aluminum.

Quickshifter is on and dialed in

Big thanks to KLRcaptain for setting it up for me. I know he enjoyed the spirited tune sprints on it Sunday morning. we kinda had the Hinds county sheriffs department befuddled as to where the bat cave was

Nice looking piece of go-fast equipment


KLRcaptain coming in from a tune session, law not far behind


Finished product except for real tires being added


Talladega here we come in two weeks!!!
