Yes change the oil. And clean the jets in the carbs. That's whats causing the bogging down.

Remove the carb , dissemble it and clean the varnish out. After so long in storage I am surprised it runs at all. Remove the petcock, ( gas valve ),water trap and clean it out. Next let one cup of gas flow into a container. Any water or rust in the bottom of the container? If any rust was in the water trap or the container then purchase an inline fuel filter to eliminate the rust getting into the carb.
If cleaning the carb yourself does not do the trick then take it to the dealer and have them clean it and install a carb kit. This should get you back on the road.

get a can of starter fluid and spray a short burst into the air intake...it should fire up...if it won't stay running or idle your carb is clogged from storage i presume...right? usually storage for more than 3 mos will clog a carb if you did not winterize it...Good luck to you friend...Tim
