I figure I will pull the fuel filter out of the tank first, it all looks clean in there peering through the cap. If I have any trouble with the carbs I will just put in the spare Mikuni rack I have from the first bike's swap to FCR's. The belts need a look, valves checked 200 miles ago, the tires are two years old but "new" - so, they will be ok for a few weeks. Have several spare batteries, brake pads are new, all the electrics (regulator, ignitors, spark wires, etc) were all just done before he stopped riding. New chain and gears 200 miles ago and they look it.
He said he drained the carbs and shut off the tank soon after the riding stopped so maybe it will be simple.
The guy he bought it from is the original owner and a long time well respected Porsche mechanic here in town. The 200 miles the second owner put on it are not significant.
