Hi - I own a GZ250 but have been looking at used S50's to purchase. The cleanest one has low miles for the year (read it has probably not been run enough) but even after the seller had dealer "check it over" the exhaust "spits". Primarily when cold according to seller.
I know its hard to access from a post like this but i'd love opinions. Is this primarily a case of run a few tanks of gas through it? Maybe add carb cleaner? Or is this "spitting" indicative of something more? Maybe carb breakdown and cleaning?
I'd appreciate any input. I'm no mechanic and the best my local dealer will say is "$600 dollars labor" to cover the basics.
Thanks in advance.
