On the Road Again! Help?
Been a long time since I came to this forum since an injury I had way back. I was also in the middle of getting a forum patch made when I went on haiatus. Which I will get back to if it is still wanted/not done already!
Now on to the main part of my post.
I haven't been on 2 wheels for what feels like nearly a year, and since it's about bike season again on Canada's west coast, I've been doing what maintenance I can on my bike ('99 v-star 650 Classic, only 8,000kms). I'm changing the engine and final drive oil, I put new fuel in the tank, and I have had the battery on a trickle charger. Now, the bike seems to be starting okay, but there seems to be a fuel leak coming from the petcock, as well as a miniscule oil leak that stopped after I started the bike.
Is there an easy fix for the petcock leak?
Also, what else should I do for a maintenance checkup before the riding season?
