local mechanic needed

Hey lads, I had the bike lying idle for the last year. Put in a new battery and started her up today, but as soon as I close the choke or give it throttle it dies. I am assuming the carbs are clogged up! Anyway I haven't used a local mechanic in a while so I am wondering who could ye recommend. I need the bike picked up also. I am in Dublin 22.

Put fresh petrol in it and take it for a good hard spin.

Add some redex in your new petrol. May help to clear out the shite..

Redex?, aghh jaysus....hardly worth it.

Carbs might need a cleaning. Or try taking air filter out and running it without; see if it runs a bit better, filter could be clogged up
