Waking up my bike from a very long slumber - May 9, 2019, 04:29 PM

I am just now waking up my bike from around 4 years of storage inside my garage. Im asking for technical guidance on the should dos of getting it back to proper working order. Im looking for viable alternatives like: condition the old gas vs syphon the old gas vs drain tank and clean it vs just let it run until its out of gas completely then refill like normal, etc. Same line of question for things like oil, suspension, coolant, brakes, etc.

Bike: 2003 GSX-R750
Shortly before it went into storage mode the following was done:
Oil Change
New Tires
New Front Brake Pads (still have to install rear)
TODAY I just installed a brand new battery

Please guys, dont recommend I get a new bike. I still want this bike because I love it. Its not cause of money. Id pick my bike over a current year one mostly for comfort and it feels great to me.

Thanks in advance to all.
