1st things 1st
 
I just bought a 1995 Buell S2 Thunderbolt this past week. It is my very first Buell and only my 4th Motorcycle. If these questions have already been answered somewhere else in the forum please forgive me in advance. It is a rescue project. It has been sitting for some years now and particularly outdoors for the last 10 months under a row of oak trees in the countryside. My question is this. Besides the obvious (clean fuel tank, oil tank, new lines and hoses, drive belt, tires etc...), what do you folks recommend to check, or replace first? It is not running at the moment so what would be some things to check before trying to start it and avoid unnecessary damage? Thanks in advance.
