2006 Suzuki ltr 450 sitting for long time what's best steps to get running?

Recommended Posts

So basically my 06 suzuki ltr 450 has been sitting around being destroyed by the sun because of broken bolts on hub and some pressures from the law. Now I am determined to get it back as healthy as possible in the best but cheapest and most efficient way as possible. So unfortunately the gas has sat in it and it hasn't been started for a long while. All I have done so far is take all the body plastics off and drained the remaining gas that was in it, which was unbelievably foul. Just reaching out for assastance on the best way to go through and restore my old partner in crime. Much appreciation for anyone willing to assist.

Change the oil and spark plug also. Check the air filter. You may have carb issue if it sat for a while and may need a good cleaning.

      Just bought (Tue. evening) an '89 Suzuki 250 4wd that has been sitting out the last 5 yrs. It's complete, including the shift knobs, battery cover, and headlights. It has the optional cooling fan on it (probly stuck - didn't check), and the engine isn't locked up. Plastic looks good and isnt cracked. Racks aren't bent up. Shift lever works, the foot brake moves (needs oil - have to pull it up by hand), and there's black oil and no water in the engine sight glass. Guy was asking $125 and gladly took $100 for it. Anxious to get started on bringing it back to life. Been wanting one of these for years. As soon as I can get to it (working on a junky "Jackel" right now - Chinese Yamaha Timberwolf). I'm going to pull the tank off it and clean it, clean & possibly rebuild carb, put in new plug, and a battery, then see what happens. If nothing, will keep going until it runs. Feel free to respond if you want to, I'm mainly just excited and wanted to tell somebody.
