    09' FZS sat for 2 years in pieces stuck valve?

    finally got the time to put this ski back toghter it started right up but ran extremely bad like it was running on 3cyl, I nursed throttle for 5min or so then all of a sudden it cleaned up, you could hear this happen, then it started running smooth.

    my question is did I hurt anything by running it on the 3cyl till the oil got moving and up to head to free the valve.....just courious if this will cause harm to the cam, I kept it like 2,500rpm nursing it for like 5min

    I would like to say no, this happend to a friend of mine due to not fogging it when he put it away for the winter time, he brought his 09 fzr over to my house to "summerise" it, had a dead battery etc. new battery later got it started and did the same thing u said, we just let it idle on the hose for a bit and raised the rpms a little bit then it went away. I told him to change the oil and plugs, then he ran it all summer with no problems what so ever...

    Joey you should be ok. I would run some marval mistery oil or seafoam it the first tank of fuel to help lube everything up valves , guides, and piston rings. Tommy Jordan
