2 strokes sitting for ages makes me think about rusty cranks and bottom end bearings. I understand that some premix oils are much better than others at preventing rust during storage. But living in a humid area any seeing spots of rust on cranks I taken out (when I used TTS), I've become paranoid about it. So when no using for a while, I leave our 2-strokes stored with the piston at TDC and hoping the reeds seal the other side reasonably well. Also using muffler bungs and 800T oil.

It actually generally works to free stuck floats if you turn the fuel off.

It was an old shitstir, but it also does work as it drains the carby. The small amount of fuel left in a carby tends to get stale quicker than that in the tank.


If you lay the bike on it's side you end up with a fresh(er) carby full of fuel.

Dumps some fuel in the crankcase for quicker cold starting.

Lay it on it side, drained the tank out. Filled it back up and it fired up after 5-6 kicks.

Near every Sunday for the last 3mths we been riding tight goat tracks. Taking the 125 out was a bad like idea as it very hard work riding in shit but thank god it has nice smooth suspension. I struggled with no brakes compared to the CRF which stop on dime. Scared the shit out of myself lots trying to pull it up and bushed a few trees here and there. Got home and when to sleep within 30min. Going keep taking it out riding as it stop me being lazy.
