Bike’s been sitting - Likely issues?
I have a 2010 Ninja 250R that I’ve owned since 2012. Last year, due to some serious family medical issues, I didn’t get it out at all, so it’s been sitting for almost two years (covered and in the garage). I’m determined to get it running this year, but know I’ll be facing some issues. I’m fairly handy, but never did more than change the oil and air filter myself in the past, so I’m definitely planning to take it to a shop for a proper tune-up. At the moment, it won’t start, but I’ve ordered a new battery (it was still using the same one that came with it when I bought it, so it was long overdue anyway) and am hoping that at least gets it running - will find out in a couple days!
Assuming I can get it started and to the shop, what should I make sure gets done? Are there things I can check on myself? I used to rely on a family friend for maintenance, but he’s no longer available. This will actually be my first time having it professionally serviced. I want to make sure I get it properly taken care of without getting ripped off.
Any advice on what to lookout for is very much appreciated!
