If you can leave it in dry storage, remove the battery and put it on trickle charge or better still get someone to trickle charge it once a week for you for a few hours or until it is charged and reads 13.6Volts.
The rest will wait.
When you return, change all the fluids before trying to start it, including break and clutch fluids!
The battery should survive and that will be that. A bit of a polish, check your tyres and off you go.

Runs on both cylinders, but after 20 minutes one cylinder shuts off. changed plugs, fuel, filter, fuel line etc

I would suggest you check the compression on both cylinders when one drops. If you don't have a compression guage, AutoZone has a loaner program, you leave a deposit and when you return tool, they give all of your deposit back. If compression us good, something is getting hot and shorting..could be a simple ground wire..but I would just want to verify that its not a loss of compression when it heats up

Why does my engine run perfect for 5 minutes then rough?

Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Does the choke stay open? The motor could be overheating, too. Make sure the heat sink blades are free of junk.

Think i need fluid in forks of my balius H reg. 1987 i think!

I am not familiar with the Kawasaki Balius model, but nearly all front motorcycle forks have two small hex head fill plugs at the top of the forks. The fluid is usually a very pure mineral oil of some sort, but use only the fluid recommended in the owners manual. You can add fluid using a squeeze bottle or a large syringe, just make sure everything is spotlessly clean. If you continue to loose fluid, you will need to rebuild the forks. The job is fairly straightforward IF you can locate a rebuild kit. Once again, make sure everything is spotless or you will be doing it again soon. If you found this suggestion helpful, please don't forget to rate it.
