Hey All - So I recently convinced my wife's uncle to give his '91 XT350 that has been sitting in the garage for years. Had to ship it from NY to FL - but worth it... This is my first bike, so I am definitely new to everything....looking forward to learning. As the bike has been run in a long time, battery is dead and tank has some minor rust inside. I have the tank off it has a bunch of vinegar in it, which seems to be doing the trick. I'll empty it tonight to see the final result. I got a Clymers + owners manual to read up on. My plan to start was to: - get the tank rust free - change the fuel line - clean the petcock - clean the carb - change the oil - change the air filter - change the battery - change the spark plug - compression seems ok - just tested with my finger - will get a compression tester, if needed. Does that sound like a good course of action to start with? Any suggestions or other things that I need to check on this first go around? Also, the bike is definitely dirty. I want to clean the entire engine and bike in general prior to doing anything else. With the seat, gas tank and side covers off, Can I spray the bike down with water? Don't want to damage any electrical components/wiring? What is the best way to properly wash it? Recommended cleaning products, degreasers etc. Any and all help is much appreciated. Here's a couple pics of the XT350.
