The stuff is NOT a pro diagnostic tool by any stretch...on the contrary can be destructive.

Properly cleaning the entire fuel system...tank, petcock and carbs (adjusting as needed) will offer reliable, ongoing performance.

I havenít ever tried using starting fluid to get it started. Havenít thought about that. Just needs cleaned. Sat for awhile and I went to look at it, got it running but it was rough. From 2005. 23k miles. I really am having a blast learning about everything that comes along with riding and not just going out and getting a bike to ride everyday. I enjoy learning the insides And outs about this bike and even if itís at a slow rate. Iím improving and Iím persistent I Know Iíll get it. Thank you guys again. For real.
