Bike is cutting out on me

This is the first day i fired my bike up in about a months time, and rode it to the shop today. I needed a new front tire, so i started to warm up the bike and it took near an hour to let me hit the throttle before it cut out again. It stoped on me in gear twice on the way to the shop and twice coming back. The guy at the shop said i should run all that old gas out of it and try some fuel filter and good gas. What do yall think i should do, because it ran fine a month ago.

you should put that fuel additive.....for bikes that sit too long. don't remember what it's called though. also if you have a carburated bike....letting it sit too long is not a very good idea.

Put some Stabil, a water dispersant / octane booster and some fresh gas. Unless your carbs are stopped up it should fix it.

if neccesary, get a cheap fuel transfer pump from autozone ( plastic hand pumps are like 10-15 bucks i think. ) or just pull the tank.

bad gas sucks, there was a thread on here a while back talking about the new ethanol ( i think ) in gas. It tends to seperate after a few days of sitting and can cause problems.
