After storing my 1997 Speedster with twin 85hp Rotax engines for over a week, both engines flood with oil making them often impossible to start. Any suggestions?

Sounds like check valves are bad in the oil pumps, or there is a seal gone somewhere..... Take the spark plugs out of the heads, attach the wires to the ground posts on the front of the engines ( so you don't get a spark) be sure that the engine compartment is WELL VENTILATED- then cover the holes with something like a towel, and have someone turn the engine over. If the cylinder is full, it will likely spray oil everywhere. Install fresh plugs or clean yours. Rinse, repeat. Check out worldofpowersports.com for repair parts for this. Find a repair manual for more info!
