Well i thought of stripping carbs on the vs 800, 4 to 5 years stood out in rain, spiders dead flies, wet soggy leaves and the odd things which decided to end its life in every craves. Anyone who has done the carbs will have had the same fun i did. Spark plugs were  stuck solid, engine oil like treacle, drained radiator ,smell and colour of an old pub toilet. So here we go old pit bike tank with fresh fuel,(other tank waiting to be cleaned out). Turn the key choke out press starter and wow SHE LIVES, blow me over with a feather, still got lots to do but well chuffed  gut Will try to put some pics later. Keith

Excellent! I have a 1980 Honda CM 200 Twinstar waiting to be resurrected. It was rained on, snowed on, although it,  was in a carport, for 27 years.  Some one broke the ignition and the steering lock trying to steal it. That's why it was neglected. Engine is frozen. Amazingly, the fuel tank still had gasoline that smelled and looked like gasoline. One spark plug broke when I was trying to remove it. I left the other one alone. I shall work on it once my garage is completed. The air filter element had turned into a powder. A squirrel had made a nest inside the aircleaner box, where it stored acorn nuts paper towels and what not. It's going to be fun. The battery was stolen too. Since it's also a kick start, that shouldn't be a problem as long as ignition wiring is not damaged.

I guy that retired from our shop last year told me he had a mouse nest in the heater box of his Saturn VUE, then DIE in there! He only found out when several cats started circling the his car for no reason! Said the smell was horribly intolerable when he turned the heater on; had to strip out the entire heater assembly and clean to get the smell out!
