Fresh from winter storage. What should I do? Gas?

Hey all -

About to break my Puch out of storage from the winter. I did nothing to it at the end of the last ride. It has sat in a garage (non-heated) all winter. What should i do to get it ready to ride?

Thanks for your input,

J.R.

Thanks for the link. I have already checked it out and it mentions nothing about past gas from last season.

Did I miss something?

First drain all the gas from your tank and dispose of it then mix a new batch with proper gas/oil ratio and follow the previous instructions. Over time gas in he carb will evaporate leaving a gooey mess in the carb so after putting in the fresh gas, if your bike does not run well, you must clean the carb. Jim.
