    What happened there? My one won't idle and just stalls after a minute. Planning to do a service once the spark plug tool comes, none of my spark plug tools fitted. Might have to look at the fuel filter. Rear wheel isn't spinning freely as well sigh..

      I think it is just 25 years worth of rust from the tank that accumulates there under the pump strainer.
      As for your idle issue what sort of service history does it have?

        Rear brake master assembly mounted back up. Thanks to Gamma for the perch and lever that I still owe a 6 pack for.
        Before.

          Last service was 2 years ago and stored away.

            After 2 years it will be due for belts and check the rocker arm surface as well. Fuel filter is a good idea and check throttle bodies, lines, fittings. I don't hold a lot of faith in the plastic quick connections after 20 years. Here are the stainless ones I replaced with. Same manufacturer by the look of it too.
