600 F4i sitting Two Years

I've got an almost brand new f4i thats been sitting idle without any starts or a thing done to it for two years.

Any idea on things I should be doing or performing to ensure no damage on its first start ??

Anybody encounter this before, crazy I know. What a waste but an injury has been sidelining me for a long time....

Thanks!!

The battery will probably be the first thing you will need to replace, unless it has been stored on a Battery Tender.

Check the tires and if they show dry rot, replace them.

Check the chain. If it is rusty and dry, replace that and the sprockets as well.
