Got the rear tire mounted on the bike tonight. Just have to align it. Then I thin the only thing left to do is an oil change and hopefully after this weekend I'll be good to go.

Bob, I'll echo once again that the lift is always open.

Thanks man. I should not need one, knock on wood, but will give you a call if I do. Thanks again!

Ok, got the rear tire aligned and tightened. Bike runs but REALLY rough right now. I'm hoping it's just from the gas sitting all winter. I might go this weekend and buy a pump and try and pump the gas out of the tank and put fresh gas in. Fingers crossed that does the trick.

I actually poured some in and ran it before storing it and just added some more last night.

Thanks Shawn. I got the old gas drained. I forget how easy it is to drain my tank and have no clue why I don't just drain it every winter.

Wish I did...still have a 1/4 tank of Sta-Bil'd gas in the Deuce. It's running like ass. I'll be glad to have this tank burnt, a fresh tank of premium, and a dose of SeaFoam.

Stabil never did a thing for me. The bike, lawn equipment and so on never ran at all after a winter of Stabil in the gas. Sea Foam it'll at least run but runs rough for me. Next winter I think I'll drain the tank and shoot some Sea Foam right into the gas line to the carb and let the carb suck it in and hopefully that will do the trick. Or I'll just drain the tank and carb. But I'm not letting the gas sit all winter again. Hopefully that is all it is anyway.

I stored both bikes with a full tank and Seafoam, no problems with either one.

seafoam for the win.. i stored with seafoam and she runs like a raped ape.. i just had the stabil vs. seafoam discussion on another forum.. they were more interested in perpetuating drama than the actual facts..

no i didn't fall - the clip-on broke on the trailer - strap must have been too tight and hit a bump or something? new clip-on shipped from south florida today so i should have it friday-ish..

I wanted to use SeaFoam, but Sta-Bil was the only thing available unless I wanted to drive 40 miles to Meijer. One of those things you wish you would have remembered to pick up before you trailer the bike 150 miles away.
