New owner in Southern Ohio

Hello All,

I brought home a '96 with just over 1000 miles on it. Bought it from the original owner who decided it was too small for his commute and parked it in his dads garage and threw a tarp over it.

Found this site trying to figure out how to get the gas cap open that had corroded shut. Look forward to reading the post and learning more about this bike.

So far I have cleaned and relined the tank, replaced the air filter, cleaned the carbs and rebuilt the petcock. It starts and runs but not great. Been petty cold here lately but I'll get it sorted bit by bit.

Thanks for all the great post and information.

Matthew

Seem I auto-welcomed up top.

Welcome again Matthew!

However, I am just a hop, skip and a jump from you down south in northern KY and a coach at Mid-Ohio. Lemme know if you are ever down this way for the good roads or if you ever have any interest in riding track or just coming to hang out.

Happy riding!

Hello all and thanks for the greetings. Csmith12 I may take you up on a visit to Mid Ohio. Always looking to improve my riding skills.

After reading several post I am going to go over all my vacuum hoses and triple check the functionally of my petcock this weekend. Try and get my idle to smooth out. With some luck and warmer weather I may even get a ride in.

Thanks again
Matthew
