Great forum here and lots of helpful folks.
Make sure before you go to put some Sta-bul or Berrymans in the tank to keep the gas fresh and the carb from getting gummed up. Before you go, you might try some Lucus Deep Fuel Cleaner and run the bike around a little, it really helps clean things up and sometimes saves you from having to rebuild the carb. I have noticed a difference within a couple miles after adding that. Starting, idle and performance were better and the carb has never had to be taken off yet.
Enjoy that bike! And thank you for your service.
