more than likely the tyres are flat and perished at this stage, the fuel will be ruined also, you'll have to drain the fuel system and empty the float bowels in the carbs too and top up with fresh fuel, check sparkplugs, oil etc, basically all fluids, brakes might be a bit seized up to, if you hit the calipers with a hammer a few times it might free them up, but dont use much force.

oh on another note any specific brand of tires u think i should use?
I think it will be a case of what tyres you can find to fit it! the front is a 110/17 & rear 130/17 but the rear rim will take a 140/17 - but not much choice for those sizes over here when i had one.

i believe i have a decent selection. I was running shinko 003 but they suck. always felt like the bike was coming out from underneath me. I was thinking about a set of pilots but not sure how they handle.

I am using Pilots now, they are great, put about 2k on them so far:thumb:
