Sounds like either dirty carbs or a carb vent issue.

Check the oil level. Sounds like they may have overfilled it. Your crankcase vent will dump oil into the air box in this situation. This oil, if enough of it, is then sucked through the carbs. The oil level should be just below the actual full mark on the sight glass to prevent this.

I'd take it to a shop that knows what they are doing. An 05 with only 10,000 has done nothing but sit. You've probably got some crap in the carbs that needs to be cleaned out.
