Laid Up for 2/3 Years

Post by swindo221991 » Thu May 29, 2014 10:34 am

Hi All,

My 1999 L9 Zxr has been laid up for quite a few years now and I want to get it back on the road.

Im going to give it a full service (or potientially get a garage to do it), but is there anything in particular that needs looking at/ checking/ changing?

Tyres could be dozed and cracked

I'd be checking the condition of the chain too

Throttle action needs checking....................... what fun when it sticks

is the clutch lifting correctly ?

Horn lights, indicators, brake lights all working ?

fuel filters clean ?

And before i rode it I'd be making very sure that the brakes are fully functioning

So many things to remember
