    Motorbike restart

    Well got her fired up......basically drained all i could new oil, filters carb cleaner(why not i thought) plugs out oil poured in and left to soak....... Now for the fun part....battery in plugs out some tissue over ports....now i have to say i expected oil to come out everywhere when turning over but no just a put put across the cylinders and 4 bits of tissue moving so me thinks thats all good 4 pistons must be moving.....lol So next plugs in all hooked up check everything tight and here we go....3 short turns umm choke on and longer turn smoke but nothing ...ok next turn put put splutter smoke everywhere shes alive ........ Let her tick over for prob an hr sitting nicely at 1000 revs and sounds fairly good....need to book mot and i know will need to gently ride and check brakes etc but all in all many thanks for all the tips and help...... Oh yea my neighbour came out....thought there was a fire with all the smoke.....lol
