Advice on starting...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Haven't rode or started my 08 CRF 250 since September last year - recovering from an ACL op. Not going to be able to ride it for another 3-6 months but feel I should start it up.

My question is should I just start it as normal or should I be doing things a bit differently as it has been left so long i.e. dump the fuel thats been left in it...

Cheers

Chris

yes definitely get rid of the stale fuel and put fresh in. check all your oil and coolant levels are ok.

press and hold the kill switch and kick it over quite a few times say at least 8 poss 10 to get the oil up to the cams etc without it firing. then just start her normally, dont run it on the stand for long after that , modern engines do not take well to being heat cycled whilst stationary, they heat up very quickly
