Nope...
Every year has the potential, the carbs and petcock are the same on all....

Just understand that the older the bike, the more it may have sat unused... the lack of use is the main cause...

And object in motion tends to stay in motion, or so it seems.... :beerchug:

Don't worry. The fix is easy and fairly inexpensive.

when will you check out the c10 you want to buy?
