Here's an update on the bike since joining the forum and posting my member introduction. I'd say I'm a little over half way through the new bike checklist (Basic Checklist for that New to You old Bike
), and thank goodness for all the things it tells you to check.
I freed up the frozen clutch (thank you longdistancerider) but might need to end up replacing the discs as the clutch is still stiff and doesn't like to spin freely with the lever depressed (even with adjustment). Is that normal?
The fuel tank is back on (with new fuel lines/tubing), but when attempting to start the bike to see if it would now run better with all the love, no luck. There is spark on both cylinders and good compression, so I'll be checking for fuel problems after I post this.
One final question that is on my mind. I used 10W30 in the front forks like the FSM said, but I've never heard of using it instead of fork oil. Should I use 10W30 like the FSM says or would anyone recommend a better option for fork oil?
Thank you all for your time and your help! I thank especially, longdistancerider and ancientdad for personally reaching out to help me. I hope to get this bad boy on the road soon enough.
