Just got a 2006 XL1200R with 690 miles on it (garage qween) I cant get it to start.:cry It had dregs of gas in the tank and the fuel was "on". I'm thinking clogged carb. but i'm not sure. I have a shop manual and plenty of tools.:coffee I would like to try and fix it myself.:laugh: I'm kind of scared of jumping into this project cold as i have never worked on a motorcycle before, and i don't want to screw it up.:swoon Is there a mechanic nearby who would help me if i run into a problem i cant figgure out? Santa brought me V&H shortshots to put on it :bigsmiley36:and as long as the carb is off for cleaning i would rejet it. Baseicly its a new bike, just been sitting for too long. I am reading all the tips in these forums as fast as i can. I hope i can get it going before spring.:bigsmiley22: Mando.
