Being in the Navy, I was deployed at sea for the last half of 2002. I stored my WR400 (98) on a stand (wheels off the ground) in my garage. I put Marvel's Mystery oil in the cylinder, made sure the gas contained StaBil (even ran the bike a bit to ensure the enriched fuel made its way to the carb), and packed the airbox with plastic bags over the air filter...so, after returning from a combat deployment, I had intentions on replacing the worn out chain, sprockets, and front tire. I greased up the swingarm real good while I had it off, and replaced the rear wheel bearings as well. Finally finished today, and now the moment of truth....... Will it start??? I asked my wife what she was wagering for number of kicks before it starts. (the average had always been two, hot or cold). I didn't drain the gas or anything, and low and behold it started on the second kick!!!!! Unreal....I seriously expected SOMETHING to not work right. It smoked really bad until all the oil got burned out of the cylinder, but after that, it screamed. Gotta love Ole Blue!!!!
