I've been tasked to revive a friend's CBR600F3, it was sitting in garage for almost 10 years with the oil pan off, he stripped the drain plug threads and forgot about it. My plan of attack is to reinstall the oil pan and pull the plugs/valve covers and oil up the cams/lifters/cylinders, then slowly turning over the engine to lubricate those surfaces. Good idea? I was also planning on changing the coolant with a fresh fill of Honda coolant and changing the oil/filter as well. I do suspect the carbs are plugged up thanks to CARB gas - he thinks Sta-Bil might have prevented the gas from going bad but I want to drain the tank, see if I can get anything out of the float bowls and it's turned rancid I'm gonna have to clean up the carbs. How difficult is it to clean up carbs on these? Anything else I should take care of to get this bike out of the garage?
