comment Start Motorcycle Garaged for Over a Year
If the oil has been in there for two years already, I'd wait until you're getting ready to start it. It's not that big a deal either way, if the engine isn't running anyway, you'll get rid of some potential moisture accumulation in the sump but if we're only talking a few more months I wouldn't worry about it.

comment Craftsman Bolt-Out and similar tools
Also keep in mind that the material they're made of is most likely harder than anything else you have in your garage and that includes your drills...

comment Which is stronger: solid sockets, or two piece sockets?
I completely agree, and neither of the sockets above look like a proper impact socket to me.

comment How to degauss a distributor
The fact that it keeps running if you keep the RPM up instead of letting it idle suggests to me that it's not necessarily an ignition fault. Have you check the idle control valve?

comment Carburetted motorcycle stalls when accelerator is applied
Ride the bike, do a plug chop. If the engine is running rich, the plug will be black, if it's running lean the deposits on the plug will be almost white. "Bambi brown" is usually close to a good mixture. If the mixture is really rich, you'll also be able to smell it. For the symptoms you describe, it's either a little lean or really rich.
