Running for first time in months (Fazer, not me)
« on: 08 December 2018, 02:46:21 PM »
Hi Folks


Not been around for a while, hope you're all good.


I've also not run the Fazer for months (probably sell it in the NY, TBH).  Do you think I need to shove a little oil in the cylinders before turning it over by hand, or just start the thing?


Ta,
Andy

plugs out oil in cyls and crank over with plugs out first, if your not running it --more oil in and plugs in hand tight only, --when you are going to run it plugs out crank over--then plugs in and fresh petrol in the tank--then start it and let it run up to temp.--jobs a carrot.

Cheers Buddy


Wasn't sure it was necessary with modern Jap engines, but I'll do as you suggest.

How many months we talking ?
If it's only a few, I think having the plugs out and putting oil in the barrels is a bit OTT.
