Thanks for the tips. I forgot to mention that this gas tank had a dose of gumout in it, since I just bought the bike and wanted to flush the carbs in the event it was needed. I'll change the spark plug out when my life settles down a bit and I feel like diving into tank removal, or I'll do it when I buy the crash bars and install them. SLO-KLR I'd love to meet you someday somewhere and go over the bike information, tip, etc. ,maybe even do the .22 cent full engine overahaul! Maybe even ride divide peak out here, or some areas up in SLO that look interesting on the topos. Here's yet another couple questions: Is the engine tuned to 87 octane and therefore you shouldn't use higher grade? (my boat engine is, and you shouldn't use higher octane according to specs). Or should I use premium anyway? Secondly, what are the best looking crash bars, for the purpose of laying the bike down now and then and not denting the tank and radiator? Thanks for all the advice.
