Well....purchased new in 2011, 6 thousand trouble free miles put on the rig in the Jacksonville FL area until medical issues parked the G5 Bullet in 2017. Fast forward to last Monday and I purchased said project and dragged her home to Charleston SC. Come with me as we rehab thisBullet and get her back on the road.
I separated the sidecar (which is another restoration for another thread) so I could get the bike on my lift table. I removed the seat, side covers, and racks in anticipation of sourcing new bits. I re over the spark plug and gave a few squirts of penetrating oil to before turning g over the engine by hand.
I drained the oil (very dark and smelled a little gasoline-ish) and replaced with 30wt just to get running and then after 1 heat cycle change again with correct weight and new filters.
I put a gallon of ethanol free unleaded and a quart of Sea Foam fuel additive to try and loosen up and dissolve any varnish deposits on bottom of empty tank and hopefully rehydrate the fuel pump. tomorrow I will pour it out and try to get the fuel pump to move some go go juice.
I will replace the battery tomorrow as well......wish me luck. I will try and start without the spark plug to get some oil circulated and see if the injector is injecting.
here are a couple pics.
