Hi, I just bought a 88 warrior last saturday - Looks like it sat for a while.
The battery was dead and the fuse was blown when I bought it. replaced both - seamed ok.
Today I was out riding, and it started raining. after a while I noticed my reverse light was on. stopped, and found myself without power to start it again. good thing my bike has a pull start also. looks like another blown fuse? (i havnt checked yet, it was pouring down rain when i got home) Why was the reverse light on? The bike was running fine, just no electric start. Whats this all about?
Another thing is when I start the bike after it has been sitting overnight it puffs out a little smoke. Just for a few seconds then it fades out. looks like burning oil. what is this caused from, and is it anything I should worry about? The bike seams to have good power, although when I changed the oil I found metal in the filter. (not to mention the airbox was filled with acorns!) I was thinking about putting some Restore oil treatment in the oil, is that ok or no no?
I like the bike though, it rides better and has more power than I expected. (last bike was 350X 3 wheeler - 3 years ago)
Also, what do I gap the spark plugs at?
Thanks for any help,
