Hi I am new to this forum. Hard to navigate at times so plz forgive mistakes. Thanks for accepting me.
My bike has only 5000 miles but has not been running for around 11 years. Garage stored. Trying to get it up and running so may be asking questions. Hopefully not too many. I’m situated in Leamington Spa UK.
Thanks Tony.

Hello Tony. Welcome to the forum. Yeah, 11 years is a long nap. Quite probably the fuel in tank has devolved into sludge over that time. So do drain what’s left and then add a can of fuel system cleaner* and refill with fresh fuel. Hopefully it’s start but in the event it doesn’t the tank will need to be dropped and and fuel pump will need cleaning/replacing. Lots of helpful information here on the forum if you use the Search function.

*Here a link to some fuel system cleaner info:

Hi Tony, there are a few of us scattered round the UK.
After 11 years of inactivity you've got a few chores to do to recommission the bike. Hopefully its just going to be fluids, tyres and a new rubber band - none of which complicated.

Welcome Tony; Eleven years is a long time for a bike (scoot) to remain still.You definitely have to clean gas tank(metal) to rid rust and maybe soak fuel pump in Marvel Mystery oil to get it pumping again . Good luck and keep us updated .

I wonder whether you primed the engine before turning it over for the first time. I would suggest that the oil has had a long time to drain away from all the bearings and other moving parts. Even after an oil change I always remove the spark plugs and run the starter until the oil light goes out. I hate to think of bare metal against bare metal until the oil gets moving.

Anyway, good luck with bringing the SW back to life. There is some work to do but it would be worth it. This forum has all, if not, most of the bases covered.

Welcome Aboard Tony. I guess I was pretty lucky when I got my 08 SWing from my sister in FL. It had only been sitting idle for 2 years with a totally dead battery. I trailered it back up to MN and put jumper cables on it from my pickup. It turned over about 3 times and popped right off without any missing or sputtering or smoke. Once I got it up to date with lots of TLC it ran great without any problems. I also topped the tank off with 91 Octane to mix with the 1/2 tank that was already there.
