I'm on a roll lately. My son got a free GS550 with under 4300 miles on it, sat since 2007. Carbs fitted on it started right up and sounded like brand new. My buddy picked up a decent RD350, 1975, sat since 2008. Carbs cleaned up and it started 1st kick (really). 17K on the bike. Charging test shows 13.9 volts across the battery. A-hole got it from a transferring supervisor for 100 bucks. FOR AN RD350! Now this Goldwing that started and ran decent right off the back of the truck, sat all winter. It's a rat bike, but still...... Plus both of my Guzzi alternator conversions worked out very well. It's a little scary because things have a tendency to balance out. I don't know what evil lurks.
