This is my first bike andI just bought it from a family, and they obviously didnt care about it. The gentleman informed me the air filter had not been changed since 2006. The bike wont idle, it will just die unless i give it gas. The choke is half way out and wont depress all the way. It runs fine while im riding, just cant let off gas, though I believe its running rich. I have no manual for the bike so Im kinda clueless. What kind of oil does the bike take, and what other fluid's should I change to help the bike run a little smoother? Any help you can give is very much appreciated, Thanks.

Well, this is what I would do. First, buy a manual! Pull the carb and give it a good cleaning, make sure the needle is in good shape (personally I would buy a rebuild kit and rebuild the carb), get a new air filter. Change the oil. put in a new plug. I would change any fluids in the transmission and or transfer cases. Basically do all the stuff the previous owner probably didn't do.
