I just picked up a 110 postie last night. It has been sitting for awhile an ran when parked

Anything I need to no before trying to fire it up? Fresh gas and oil check. Anything I should do.

  • Just slowly move the kick starter at first to get the fresh oil moving to all parts

    before actually starting it

    Others may have more info

  • Ok sounds good I can't wait try it but it's 730 am still. Thanks. How many miles can these things go

    This one has 31000 seems all original. Has the canteen gas tank.

  • Well I topped up the battery with distilled water. Checked oil. 5 slow kicks with the key off. Turn key on. Hit the choke. Kicked it over. And it fired right up

  • Signal lights don't work though

  • Congrats on it firing up.

    Hard to kill a postie hehe

  • Now I'm gonna go test ride it

  • Signal lights should work when you Rev it a bit. I would assume. The battery is stuffed.

  • Yeah. I'm thinking new battery. The bike runs great though
