thats what we are here for
before you do much of anything to the bike look in the gas tank with a flash light. If the bike has sat for more than a few months the gas could be gooped up from the 10% ethanol degrading into jell.
If the gas is not clear and esp if it looks like coffee, drain the tank and cycle the fuel pump with the line off the carbs to blow that out too. Dont start it up or ride it with bad gas, you dont want goop being flushed into your carbs. If you have already been running it, and now you realize the gas is bad, that is not the end of the world either....
Nearly all of the issues with bikes that have sat for a long time are the fuel decomposing, and 2nd is the battery getting too oxidized to hold a charge and start the bike.
