Greetings from Arizona

Hey guys,

Just introducing myself.

New to the state of AZ (been here 8 months). Looking forward to some good riding.

I ride a 2002 919.

Just getting back on it after 5 years of no riding. Health conditions took me out of the game for quite some time. I'm lucky to be standing on my feet.

Needless to say - the bike sat for 5 years. (selling it would have been sacrilegious). And now shes got some problems.

I'm going to comb through the threads & look for some solutions. Im half way there - just need to trouble shoot a bit more. Any help would be much appreciated - as this is why I am here.

Thanks for reading,
Good riding everyone.

Arizona's a good place for biking! I lived there myself for a few years.

The big issues you're likely to run across with the bike sitting for so long is the fuel turning into varnish and clogging everything up, and the rubber seals, gaskets, hoses, etc. hardening and cracking from the hot, dry weather. I'd start with the fuel system and go from there, since there are products specifically for removing gasoline varnish from fuel systems and it's not very difficult. All the rubber is going to be more time-consuming to look over.
