Waking a bike up from slumber
Well, my buddy just picked up a bike from his boss... 2000 cbr 600f4 with 13,000 miles for 1500 bucks... Only bad with the bike is the fairing is cracked where the left turn signal mounts, and it hasn't been started in 3+years. I got contracted to wake it back up again, so I'm changing all the fluids, (oil, break fluid, coolant, gas) and getting everything cleaned and back in adjustment... It started right up once we charged the battery and got fresh gas in it, but will only idle and with the choke on full, and after working on it a while I've gotten it to blip a couple hundred rpms but it still always dies right after, so it looks like I'm gonna have to pull the carbs tomorrow. I was excited when he first told me the bike was an f4i, but obviously we can't all get lucky...
Any other suggestions on things to look out for/change/adjust on a bike that's been sitting so long?
