What would you do..??

I found a 03 Sprint St with 50 miles on it. It's been sitting for quite a while. My guess is , it's been stored with all the fluids in place, I'm not sure. What do i have to do to 'bring it back to life"? Thanks for your help.....

Re: What would you do..??

I would drain any fuel in the tank, replace it, and get it started. Take it easy for a bit, and change the oil.
Unless it has alot of gas in the fuel system that has gone bad you should not have trouble.
Those bikes are cool, I rode and seriously considered an 04.
My son has a 2004 Daytona 955, I like it alot.
Reliability is not quite Honda like, though.

Here is something I wrote up about that bike. The Sprint engine characteristics are similar to the Daytona's.

Re: What would you do..??

Yeah, the gas will be the biggest issue. Since its a fuel injected bike the rest pretty much takes care of itself. I'd also take a look at the tires just to be sure they're in good shape and make sure the brakes are ok. You'll love the Triumph though. The engines are excellent and the handling is very good for a sport touring bike. If you want to check out a triumph forum for good tech stuff triumphrat.net is a good place to go.

You end up getting the bike up and going? They are nice bikes, nearly bought one several times before deciding on my VFR.
