So, She has been sitting since Nov 09 in the shed. Had lots of trouble starting her last fall. Starter should be fine. It got rebuilt only 4 years ago, and it was running good when I parked it. Pulled it apart to see if the starter connections were okay. I pulled the wires off the coils and put dielectric grease on all conections. Put it back together, new Westco battery. No start. It turns but never catches. The other symptom is gas comes dripping out of the right carb. I pulled off both float bowls to see if a float was stuck, nothing. Valves? I was told long ago by my mechanic and his assisstant that the valves close up more over the winter and you should do them in the spring. Sometimes I believe this and sometimes I don't. The valves were done along with the rings last fall. Argh, this bike is a pain sometimes. I just want to ride! I guess I should go back to the basics: fuel and fire.
