How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former glory.
while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language, swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive to some people
If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be reported to YouTube my channel is viewed by young and old alike, please bear this in mind.
Kind Regards, John OHanlon.

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

Yamaha XJ550 first engine start in 10 years
I like seeing if i can get old bikes running. I feel every bike has a soul
and deserves a second chance. This bike had been left out side and had not
been started in 10 years! I took out the spark plugs and poured WD40 and
engine oil into the cylinders, let it soak over night, then hand turned the
engine over nice and slowly. I changed the old engine oil and cleaned the
spark plugs. Next, off came the carbs for cleaning, there was a centimetre
of crap in the float bowls! I checked the auto cam chain tensioner. Some
fresh fuel and a battery, and she's ready to start.
