A friend of mine bought this Sportsman. It was really nice but hadn't been run for many years. Here is some of the stuff I did to get it running . I poured Marvel mystery oil down through the spark plug hole. It had no spark so I sent The alternator and coil to Arizona to get checked. The alternator was good but the coil need of some work and I got a really good deal on getting it fixed for him. I changed the oil and the spark plug and cleaned the carburetor. It started then after I kicked it a while and ran great. The old tires kept losing air so I bought new tires, thorn resistant tubes and rim liners. While the wheels were off I greased the bearings and check the brakes and there was a lot of pad left on the brakes. It runs great and is fun to ride. The inside of the gas tank was rusty so I put a bunch of nuts and bolts in there and rolled them around to knock off the rust and cleaned out the inside of the tank. Then I installed a fuel sediment bowl to catch anything that tried to come through.
