found a "new" 98' STX 900, start-up question
so i ran across a brand new 98' STX 900. It has never been run and is full of oil and topped off with it's first tank of pre-mix as it would have left the dealer. The ski was bought but NEVER run. it was stored inside, so there is no weathering, mildew, etc. it's absolutely perfect.
i plan of draning the fuel tank, flushing the fuel system, and blowing out the carbs. I'll refill with 40:1 premix since it was never run/broken in.
I think oil has no shelf life, should i bleed the system and blow out the pump to carb lines?
Should the oil in the mag cover be replaced or checked?
i was gonna spray the cylinders with oil to help the rings/walls if they happen to be stuck or rusted from sitting. I saw NO signs of moisture so i'm hoping this will be ok.
anything else that should be addressed that i'm missing?

see if the motor cranks first, other than that I think you have it covered.
