2010 Honda crf250r sitting for 5 years...

Jan 1, 2017
I have a 2010 crf250r with 15 hours on the engine that I bought new in 2010. I rode the bike once per year for the last 5 years for about 20 minutes at a time but has mostly been sitting in my folks' garage.

I will be able to ride a lot in 2017 and want to make sure I take the proper steps to prepare the bike for a good season of riding. What should I check over and look for before I jump into a season of riding? What are some common problems that could occur with this type of engine due to inactivity.

Any help/advice you guys could provide would be much appreciated.
