Charge the battery, change the spark plugs, and don't start it unless you're going to ride it, to get it nice & hot.

Take battery to battery's plus and get it checked out.

It sounds like it has been sitting a while. I think it is probably best to get a new battery, spark plugs, air filter and fluids. Drain the fuel tank and get fresh gas. A good Injector cleaner wouldn't be a bad idea to add to the fuel.
