I hope I fixed my sig line correctly. I made sure the hoses were clear. I can get the bike to sputter but barely. I ran down my new battery cranking so much. I just changed the oil and installed new spark plugs. I think my next step is to remove and clean the carbs and i know there is a ton of info on this site about that but for some reason it just scares the bejesus out of me! Heard a lot of horror stories about carbs


If you have a battery charger go ahead and leave it hooked up while you are cranking it. It will help you have enough juice to turn the starter and create spark. Just make sure you unplug it once the bike starts.



Also, buy a can of starting fluid and spray some into the air intake. Take out the filter. That stuff does wonders on engines that have been sitting a while.
