    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.

    supa and BW,, do i need to bitch at,,, er ,preach to, anti, about letting motocicles sit around with old gas ?

    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:deal:lol3.

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

    Big thanks to KLRcaptain for setting it up for me. I know he enjoyed the spirited tune sprints on it Sunday morning. :D we kinda had the Hinds county sheriffs department befuddled as to where the bat cave was :lol3

    Nice looking piece of go-fast equipment

    Thanks! It should work good for commuting to work and around town!

    We need to line up a group ride/camp to go watch a track day sometime. Bet that would be a blast!

    I always liked a top box for work commuting it made the lane splitting so much easier than side bags.

    Yea y'all come to one I think steelpony and dan650 are coming to a barber event. It's free to get in at a NESBA run event. Talladega charges I think 5 or 10 but may not even charge depends on the prick at the gate house.

    We will be at barber April 13-14. That will be with NESBA. I'm skipping may-July so after April I won't be back on track until end of august thru November.

    I may need to mark that on the calendar. Been wanting to ride over to the museum again and with family in B'ham to stay with, might make for a fun weekend.
