Cleaning up a motor thats been sitting around

Postby Jer » Sun May 20, 2012 7:09 pm

Juspt picked up a 2009 er6n motor with 700kms on the clock, from a wrecked demo. This motor has been sitting around since 2009, out of the bike on a garage floor with all hoses exposed, etc.
I am wondering what i should do to make sure this motor is still in good condition. I plan on flushing the cooling system with distilled water, and pouring a few litres of dino oil through her, but is there anything else I should be doing. any info would be appreciated. thanks.

Shoot some Fogging Oil into the spark plug holes, and crank it over a few times without
the plugs in.

Thanks for the response. I'll try that!
Hopefully the previous owner did that before putting it away, but i doubt it.
