    If the bike has been sitting for a while, I'd drain it.

    Putting seafoam in it now won't hurt it, but without mixing it real good can't be sure it's mixed in. That is usually done at the gas pump.

    Best thing I used on a chain was kerosene to clean it. but you need to know if it's a standard chain or some o-ring chain.

    I found the carb holder on partzilla and ordered it a couple of days ago. When I went to check the condition of the air filter I found the the housing and filter have been replaced with 2 unifilters. These are just a single foam cylinder with a rubber flange that clamps onto the intake of the carb. I went to unifilter's website, but I'm still not getting a warm fuzzy about them. Any suggestions for replacements?

    skip the sea foam and just clean the carbs and change the spark plugs. carbs are easy after you do a few LOL. the uni filters are alright, just clean and oil then every so often.

    sounds like they are similar to the K&N oiled filters, so when cleaning don't use and air hose to blow dry them....this will tear the filter medium and reduce the effectiveness of the filter......and get a good filter oil from the autozone or o'reilly....

    Yup, air dry only. Nothing wrong with them at all.
