Just curious. How much did you pay? Why did it sit for 6 years? These bikes are solid gold, and tough as a sherman tank, I can't believe no one noticed it in all that time! Have fun with it!

I bought it from a junk yard Star Towing San Diego they have lots of bikes that get impounded and then they sell them after no ones gets it out bc they are contracted with san diego PD dont know why it was there tho

i paid 1800 for it

Damn, $1800?! I need to do some junkyard shopping.

I'd consider changing the tires since they've been sitting out in the sun and slowly rotting for that many years.

Air filter
oil change and filter
idk your tech skills but drain your brake fluids nd bleed em
FRONT AND REAR BREAKS!!!

drain that fuel out put some fuel injector cleaner for bikes on there Chevron
PRO-GARD about half the bottle if its fuel injected if its carburated pull them out and clean them turn it on and let it sit listen to the revs and idle should be 1500rpms
Chain and Sprocket it sat there you go you should put as much
Coolant flush and new coolant in there flush that ish out real good you dont want no surprises
when you get some$$$ have your fork oil and seals changed
Battery toss that one and get yourself a new one to be on the safe side buddy
