Sprint ST (99-01)


18 May 2017 14:52
Thanks everyone. I had a sunny morning today so was able to do some more playing around.

It was very wet around the gas filler on the tank (not sure what you'd call this bit?). I rodded the drainaway with a guitar string, then drained the tank before pulling it off.

I put some seafoam in the tank and the damn thing started first time. Can I chalk this up to water getting into the tank? I'm worried that this won't hold up to the next south west soaking.

Thanks for the advice on the Easy Start. I will grab a can on the weekend. I'm also going to order some replacement coils as a backup. Is there anything else I can do to try to safeguard this against non-starting in the meantime?

Thanks very much again - this forum is a real life saver.
