Post 2011 zuma 125 sitting for 3 years
ive had my zuma in my garage for about 3 years without starting it. i took it out and obviously the battery is dead. i got a new one and it started like its brand new. no weird sounds or anything on idle or while riding it. checked the dip stick and its clean and not low. gas is below a quarter. i changed the oil in 2013 to amsoil synthetic 10w-30 and rode it for a about 100 miles before storing it in the garage.

question is should i change the oil anyways? people are telling me to just top off the gas and get rid of the old gas. im just lazy to do it if i dont have to


thanks

I would drain fuel out
if its turned to varnish inside that will clog up filter
and maybe injector

and put fresh fuel in

I would also change the oil too, and gear oil

your looking at like $7 to do all this for a bike worth at least $1800

and maybe 1/2 of time



also remember rubber parts go bad over time

tires, drive belt, hoses

brake fluid could absorb moisture depending on the environment its in

make sure the paper air filter hasn't rotted out

its a yellow paper behind the metal screen


if you have nothing but a metal screen you have no filter

if you do see the yellow paper make sure it looks all even and not flaking apart or super black and dirty

there is a nice washable direct replacement here
