My name is John Paul, I'm from Richmond VA, and I am honored to be posting on this forum. I can see there's a lot of dirty hands who help a lot of people.
I am currently enjoying a 1984 ZN1100LTD. However, today at work I spoke with someone who said he was selling a 1992 Vulcan 750 that had sat for many years. Well, I bought it, a new muffler, and two helmits for $500 and need your expert advice to help me 'try' to start it properly. I will have more information and pictures this weekend after I trailer it home.
Needless to say I suppose I'll need to drain the fuel if there is any, try to rotate the engine manually to lubricate it after adding oil, install new plugs and cables as they looked pretty rusty. Yes - unfortunatly it sat outside for many years. Maybe 10. It only has 923 miles and he just let it sit there partially covered. I can't imagine the waste of the bike like that sitting there and he paid insurance on it all these years!
The paint job is in great shape, the tires are still inflated, there were wasps in the saddle bags, and corrosion all over. Elbow grease will make it shine again and I'll be sure to take before and after pics for yall.
Enough already. I'll anxiously await any advice you all may have. I will send pictures Saturday evening.
Thanks again and I look forward to reading you,
