Waking up an out-of-long-term-storage 250 starfire
« on: January 29, 2021, 03:50:26 pm »
As part of a lot purchase of parts and sleds that I bought last spring from a gentleman in Minnesota (see related threads), this all original 250 starfire was reported to not have been run for 20 years.  I replaced one bad carb, replaced all of the fuel lines, etc, removed a mouse nest from the muffler, and it started right up.   The sled is 100% original, with quite a bit of gelcoat cracking, but no major damage anywhere on the sled.   Too nice to restore, I have been trail riding it a bit this winter.   Not really a resurrection, but a nice wakeup??
