Thank you all for having me and my 2008 V-Star 650. The bike has 483 original miles on it, and some issues that go along with resting instead of running... Hopefully I can solve my lazy front cylinder problem through the forum.

A bike that was left parked for years with gas in the tank might need the carbs cleaned

but first get a pint of SeaFoam from Walmart and run an ounce per gallon (4 ounces per tank) thru the bike, maybe for 400 miles, and see if it clears up.

If the bike has old gas in the tank and it could be more than 6 months old, drain that out first. I dont know what to do with old gas, maybe put it in your car, one gallon per tank of fresh gas, to get rid of it.
