I'VE GOT A FASTSTRIKE 150. CAN I ADD ANY FUEL ADDITIVES OR ANYTHING ELSE, TO HELP LUBRICATE AND CLEAN EVERYTHING THE FIRST TIME OUT?

Hey jethro,
So you say you are worried about not having enough lubrication on initial start up after a long lay up?
You can pull the plugs and give a squirt into the cylinders with some of your two cycle oil. Put the plugs back in.
And you can add a little extra to the spin on filter element too.
Then you could ground out the plug leads and crank it over a bit with the choke on to get it good and wet inside.
It may be a bit hard to start but your engine will like the effort.
Make sure you are using TCWIII oil and that you are injecting the carbon free additive at the proper intervals for longevity and optimum performance.
