Last year's fuel, just dump that and drain the old fuel from the float bowl and tank.

When cleaning the carb be sure to take the jets out
If you have poor starting, a common problem, the fine drilling taking in fuel from the enrichener is often the problem. Riders often clean the jets but miss that fine drilling which is in the starter circuit.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if you have dirt in the tank itself and the fuel tap also.

Yes I have a maintenance manual and it mentions those fine openings in the enrichener circuit could be plugged or the slow jet could be plugged. The fuel line has an aftermarket filter installed by the last owner and the tank is clean inside. I emptied it last summer and it was clean as a whistle inside. I'm pretty sure a good carb cleaning and some new gaskets and fresh fuel will do the trick. Just need to find the time.
