Great advice....can I ask what I should do before I start up an old 2 stroke motorbike that's been sitting for a couple of years?


drain any fuel out of it, new plug/s fresh fuel...may (probably will) need carby rebuild...so expect that.

Would you bother replacing gearbox oil & brake fluid?


I'd change it all. Gearbox oil, Brake fluid, clean air filter, change plug, drain fuel and put new fuel in. If it doesn't run right you might need to take the carby apart and clean it out. You'll know this buy draining it from the fuel bowl. If it looks gunky then it needs a clean out. What bike have you got?


I've got a '76 model Yamaha RD400...It's a nice bike, but it doesn't get ridden enough & garage space is getting tight (I'm thinking about selling it, but it seems to be the only thing I own that isn't going down in value!)


That's a nice bike! If you ever think of selling it let me know. I'd love a little side project

Will do (it's 100% original so you have to promise not to butcher it into a cafe racer!)
