Took the Maxim out for the first ride of the year. Primed the bowls and tried the starter. Cranked and cranked. Acted like it wanted to catch a few times. Figured I flooded it. Pulled the plugs (they were black/sooty and smelled slightly of fuel) cleaned them off and reinstalled. Bike started within 15 seconds. Ran a little rough for the first 30 seconds and then smoothed out. Took it out for a good hour and ran like a top the whole time. My bike just does not like to sit for any extended time whatsoever. I have a feeling its running a little on the rich side. I just need to convince someone to do a little carb clinic in my neck of the woods lol. It's good to be riding again!
