99 XC 600 SP

Do to a lack of snow in Minnesota for the past three years I haven't ridden my sled much.I haven't started it in a year I was wondering about the gas,oil and carbs should I bring it in and have the carbs cleaned and the gas dumped?What about the oil is it still good?

Gas and carbs???? YES!!!!!!!!! Unless you want to possibly put in two pistons later on. Oil? I'd just syphon the tank and put new in. Don't get any air bubbles in the lines.

Assuming it was stored in a dry environment then the oil will be fine, but you will want to drain the gas tank, clean the carbs and also put a new fuel filter on.
