Smile Re: bringing my schwinn back to life

Welcome to the forum hcrft

Question: what kind of gear grease should i use ?
I just use high temp wheel bearing grease.

Question: should i get the shift kit BEFORE the tuned pipe? or does it matter?
Cannot think why it should matter?

Question: and most basic of all, i cant remember the oil weight and oil to gas ratio
I've been running 40:1, some run 32:1

What about cleaning the carb and gas treatment for the engine because they have been sitting?
I would remove all of the old fuel and mix a fresh tank. If its been sitting long, you might want to pull the fuel bowl off and make sure the fuel has not gummed up.
