    Just happened to fall into this thread. Fascinating and great progress by Ice-ken.

    I've been trying to find a good low mileage Mito or RS (dearer than Mitos in UK) for a similar project. Will now keep a keen eye on here. Cheers!!

    Never mix 2 stroke oil of different varieties ! Different oils can react, ie castor oil can react with mineral oils, and castor oil turns into rubber after
    many years in a tank ( and absorbs water )
    Also its not unheard of, sabotage by a jealous/previous owner/ ex wife or all 3 ! ( a friend of mine had his RG500 sabotage d by his ex wife!)
    Its always worth draining the oil tank on a new purchase, also your oil pump could be damaged by having to work extra hard sucking through
    a blocked filter (and foreign particles might get sucked through the filter damaging the delicate oil pump seals ?)
    Great work you found it before really serious problems !

    Fantastic restoration. I plan to get a new lock set also as Iíve only got 1 key and my current gas cap is looking a bit tatty and will be out of place next to my new old stock gas tank cover. I could try to refinish it myself but I think Iím better off getting the new OEM lock set.
