Wouldn't think new plugs are needed... but yeah, fresh gas. Check the air filters...yep (have seen photos of mice making a home there)
Toss in some seafoam for sure....

|Brooklyn_Vulcan||I would think a series of things would need be checked...after battery ...new plugs...possibly spark plug wires too..air filter elements...gas in tank that might have gelled over ..pending how much you had in tank before storage...just a various check list...and if you dont have a garage ...wrap her up in blankets ..put two poly tarps over the blankets...and just once a week...make a visit ..start her up....hope you get it to run...as you stated....season just about to start...|

Buy this battery: (its a Yuasa USA made AGM with a different label stuck on it). Then order a battery maintainer the terminals are in the exact correct spot and orientation for our bikes. Do NOT buy a battery by search for a part number as you will find subpar and chinese batteries still labeled with the number below.

In the off months remove your battery and keep it on the $24 battery maintainer in the winter. Your battery will last 5 seasons and always work when you need it.

|JimmyMac||Thanks for the advice, all. I'll try a jumpstart tomorrow, and see how that goes. If it fires up I'll be off to pick up a new battery, Knifemaker. I live in a 110 year old house with a very small backyard with no garage. I just bought the bike this past summer, and was thinking about paying for a storage unit for the winter. I wish I would've listened to myself. I've drawn up some plans for an insulated shed that I plan to start building in the next couple weeks. I'll be ready for next winter for sure! Thanks again!|

|Goofyfoot2001||You definitely need to load test that battery. If the battery is good and no blown fuses then clean your ignition switch, it's corroded in there.|

(Actually 4 months shark)
Big mistake leaving it outside.....your battery is likely toast. If it wasn't the battery, I'd check the main fuse, but I'm pretty sure the battery has gone to battery heaven.
Getting a false reading from a charger can happen, but you should get yourself a new battery and a new charger. ..
