Default 95 RR returned to the road

Some tips on cleaning fuel system to get your bike running great again. picked this bike up a month ago after 11 years stored in a garage with fuel in the tank. Bike was in perfect condition but would not run at all. I started by removing the tank and a little starting fluid to see if it would fire, which it did. Removed the tank to drain fuel. Petcock was clogged and tank pre filter was disintegrated. Cleared debris out of petcock to drain tank. Tank was coated in varnished fuel and slightly rusty. Flushed tank with water then plugged petcock with a plug cap and filled tank with white distilled vinegar to the top. Let it sit 5 days, would peek in and shine a flashlight in to see the progress. Drained the vinegar and added some baking soda and water to neutralize the acid. Flushed the tank for a while with fresh water then let it drain. Then immediately put a gallon of 2 cycle oil gas mixture in to prevent flash rusting and sloshed it around. Removed and stripped carbs all jets and emulsion tubes into a gallon of carb cleaner and let soak over night. Took the carbs and fuel lines and submerged them into a 5 gallon bucket with 2 parts pine sol one part water and soaked overnight and flushed with water and blow out with compressed air. It works great except stains brass a little black no biggie. 4 carb rebuild kits from eBay, new fuel filter. I also installed a factory apk jet kit and +4 advancer and a new black widow pipe. Bike runs flawlessly and pulls hard.
