I have a 2000 Yamaha xl800 and 2002 gp1200.
They sat for two years untouched. :skullbones:

I picked them up and now trying to get to run well.
First thing is obviously new batteries, wont crank.

I checked spark and sparks good.

I guess my question has a few parts:

1) Before I buy a carb rebuild kit, is it absolutely necessary? and any tips on the rebuild? I hear its a headache...

2) The fuel must be bad by now, is there a decent product to fix it or must I drain the tank? If so how the hell would i do that?:confused:

3) Any other suggestions on how to get them purring once more?

thanks!:udaman:

OK! Good News!! :D

Daunted by the idea of opening up those carbs, and hesitant to buy rebuild kits because im broke, I went to autozone for a few cheap possible solutions.

I should start by saying I installed fresh spark plugs and batteries.

I purchased Lucas fuel restore (clean motor) formula and some octane booster, added about 3 gallons of premium to both skis and presto!

They took a minute to start but with some choke and throttle they lit right up!

So, thanks for your tips, hopefully this can save someone else some time and money!!
