My "new" '09 XT250 sat for 3 yrs, should I do anything special?

Recommended Posts

Woo Hoo...what a great little bike!  I just got it today.  I read up a lot on them before getting it.  I don't have any problems at all.  The tires seem fine at all speeds, no wobbles.  Some folks say they would like a 6th gear.  I had it up to 70km in 4th, hit 5th and cruised at 90km/hr and it was great. Still felt like it had a lot left.  I don't think I would want to go much faster than that anyways.  I got it as a commuter.


Anyways, the guy bought it new in '09 and only drove it twice. He started it every year, He changed the oil and gas and battery this year.


It has 50km on the odometer!!!  It runs fine, but I have nothing to compare it too.  It idles a bit erratically......should I put some sort of carb cleaner in it?  Is there anything I should lubricate?  Change the plugs?

Any advice would be appreciated.
