Here She Is
Well guys,here is the finished product.In my intro,I posted a pic of this neglected scooter.It sat for 5 years after it's owner passed.Needed a lot of cleaning.Vac petcock was not working,opened it up and found the small O-ring had deteriorated and was stuck in it's bore,I cleaned the O-ring and bore.I know I should have replaced it but it works.Cleaned the gas tank,put new gas in.Lucky no gas in carbs when stored.Drained bowls after testing petcock,gas was clean.
Brakes were not working,master cylinder had congealed fluid,scooped it out and cleaned what I could.I had some Skidoo Dot 4 so I filled it up and let it sit over night.This stuff seemed to dissolve the old crap.Could not get it bled properly,so I checked the calipers,one piston was stuck.I was able to pump piston out and cleaned exposed part ,did the other side too.Bled all the old fluid out,finally got pressure.
Bike started very easily,but was making some nasty noises in the top end until oil got up there.Ran it until oil was hot,changed oil and filter.Did the fork oil and rear drive oil too.Lubed all the cables
Very smooth motor,pretty good power.
