I am brand new to riding and I have just recently(a week ago) purchased a used/new to me (it only had 647 miles on it!) 2009 Vstar 950 tourer, I am thinking it sat a while without being ran and I think there might be a tank of bad gas or the possibility of a clogged fuel filter. How can I know for sure without bringing it in to a dealer and paying a ton for the diagnostic test? When starting out it feels like it wants to hesitate (almost a chugging feeling as if you are in too high of a gear) in first and the start of second gear, and with the throttle open about 1/2 to 3/4 it will then fully engage and take off (leap forward). Does anyone have any sort of knowledge that would be able to help me out with this one a bit?
