Um, welcome. A bike that's sat for ten years can be very problematic. Especially if you don't know what condition it was in prior to sitting there.
Hopefully you paid very little for it. First off you should drain and clean the tank, and the carburetors. Check all the fluids, replace the oil, and the battery.
From there it's a matter of chance as to other issues.

The air filters are another obvious thing to look at. After 10 years the foam filters may have turned to dust. Mine sat for 3 years once before I revived it. But 10 years is a LONG time. This may be a fun project to bring back to life or a money pit nightmare.

Its up to you to decide which it will be. Have fun.
