i finally got my 00 r1 running perfect. since it has carbs i know modern fuel isnt the best for them but is there any way to keep it running well? i know alot of additives do more harm than good so anyone know a tried and true way to prevent gumming up and or wear on the carbs?

Never let carbs sit more than a week without running the engine. Even a week is stretching it. The fuel bowls will dry up, especially in the summer months. A carbed bike is like a puppy. Neglecting it is certain death.

And yet I started a bike I had not run since 2003 last week with no issues , I have other bikes that sit for months and do not get used .. and they fire right up without a problem ,just a shot of fresh gas in the tank and off I go ...The secret ,, the huge big trick ,, switch the fuel tap off when you park it ... it really is that simple .
