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.

The fuel tanks are common to rust through, maybe that is where the dirt is from.

SOURCE: 2005 Kymco 250cc quad 4 stroke, all auto. Won't start

get a can of starter fluid and spray a short burst into the air 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

Hello,I have 1994 ford taurus that turns over but won't start.It has been sitting for a year. Also when I turn on the key a computer box under the hood,mounted just above the radiator buzzes. Please give...

They're shouldnt be any computers near the radiator. Your coputer would be mounted inside the car or on then fender/firwall (away from heat). Make sure the battery is fully charged and that the distributar cap/rotor are not corroded. Also make sure the gas hasn't gone bad (get water in it after sitting). Put some water remover in the tank and try to ad fresh gas if your not able to drain the tank. You could also have bad/clogged injectors after sitting but highly doubtful if it ran fine a year ago. Check the easy things I mentioned first. Spray som starting fluid in the throttle body while holding the throttle wide open when starting (need 2 people for this) see if it tries to fire, if it does try you are not getting gas or not good gas. Out the water remover in first and as much new/fresh gas as possible.

Water in my Quad Bike engine, How do i remove all of it ?

You do not need to tear into the engine. Just remove the drain screw (or drain plug) from the carb float bowl and drain the carb. Remove the tank and dump it out. flush it with a bit more gas. Remount the tank then fill with gas. Drain a cup of gas and check for water in the bottom of the cup. Keep draining until no water is in the cup.

You may need to remove and clean the carb. Sitting for a year can allow gas to dry and form varnish that can plug up the jets. ESPECIALLY if the gas valve was left on.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

My 1999 Cadillac Escalade has been sitting for about a year and it wont start and the battery is new what do i do?

From your brief description I presume you are able to crank the engine?
If all o.k. then I would be looking at fuel? if Petrol which I think possibly is maybe it has gone stale? You say 12 months if only a small amount of fuel in tank then you may get away with diluting the old with fresh, however it might not run too sweet until old fuel spent.
If Diesel possible Fuel filter change and check for Air locks.
