With that sort of condensation in the top end, you could reasonably expect to have water/moisture in the oil. For the relatively small price, I would replace oil and filter.

Assuming the motor's intact and in the bike, I would make up a spray bottle of 20:1 fuel/two stroke oil and spray into top end, leave overnight and then run the next day.

Others might have a more 'modern' approach:wink

^ Agreed, just change the oil - it's cheap enough.

Next time a bike is gonna sit for awhile or is in extended storage, pull the sparkplugs and spray a little fogging oil down into the combustion chambers. This is especially important if you live in a high humidity/salt water location.

You can use something like this, for example: https://www.goldeagle.com/product/sta-bil-fogging-oil/
