I take it you mean you made a promise to someone (significant other?) to hang it up. You should have sold the bike if you were serious about this!

It sounds like you are on the right path. Have you tried firing her up to see what happens? I'd definitely change the oil and fuel, but after that run it and see what happens. Probably a good idea to flush the coolant too at this point. Doubt the plug has anything wrong with it. Maybe also clean the air filter and make sure it is oiled?

I did the same thing, almost, didn't make a promise but the time and money involved in SM racing was obviously not supported.
I'm glad you;re getting back in the saddle. I will be too shortly after I move out although I have to get myself a bike as the others were sold to pay bills.
A wise man once said to me, "Women come and they tear you to pieces, motorbikes will always be there. Don't lose that passion." I didn't. It just went on vacation for a while.
Good luck with getting back into it.
