A1 Batteries will only last about three years without charging, after that they die, the plates sulfate up and will not charge. Even in the driest of conditions the chemical reaction will die over time as the lead plates calcify once this has happened it is almost imposable to get the batteries to take a charge. Also charging the batteries could cause a short in the battery and cause it to explode recommend you replace them

A2 Yes change oil pull spark plugs spray a light oil like WD-40 in the cylinders to lube the rings same with the valves. Oil and condensation from water can cause a acid in the engine crank case and cause damage to engine bearings and pit piston rings. 2a As for the gas remove the fuel line and drain fill with new gas, as well add some lucas gas treatment before fueling up with new gas this will stabilize what fuel you won't get out. Also apply lube to throttle cable and throttle linkage, also to the clutch and brake cables, work the cables so they are free. A light machine oil is good for this.

A3 add a small amount of oil to drive train and drive a few miles and see if it tightens up.

Q4 Just follow the fuel line to remove fuel or buy a vacuum pump to pump out of the tank.

A5 are you speaking of the choke valve or the run switch?

    Sure it would be ok to replace with after market as long as they are rated the same amperage hours, and I have owned many motor cycles including a BMW but can't remember the model number, I have had a couple or RMX125 and some suzuki dirt bikes two Honda bike and took a year in motor cycle repairs but that was in 1989 and things have changed since then, , so I helped what I gave you was enough to get you buy. Since I didn't see an answer I thought I would post something. My BMW was a road bike with drive shaft drive so I can build engines trouble shoot transmissions and electrical problems but don't know all the bikes out there just like cars and trucks, there are at least 300 different manufactures around. Helped build a hydrogen driven Honda switched out from gas and have built a few electric/hydrogen cars so I can't know everything just wanted to be sure you had some good answers-That I did know, as You saw i had a question mark on that question. c-ya and hope this helped you.
