i have a couple of these chinese atv's also ... and yeah, if you leave them sitting they start having problems with the carb. your starter is probably fine. your carb probably just needs some cleaning and yeah, you might need a new battery, they always put these cheap @ss batteries in them!
what part of town do you live in, and I'll tell you where you can go. I know of a few places.

i bought it last november and stored it at work on a pallet rack untill that xmas eve i took it out and tired to start it and the battery was dead, so i put it on a battery charger. took it home and hid it in the shed till the next morning, went out there while he was getting bundled up thinking he was gonna ride w/me on my fourwheeler i tried getting it to start and wouldnt start again.... i figured it was p.o.s. battery, figured i'ld weld a new bracket to hold lawnmower battery to it. tried jumping it off my 4 wheeler. nope that didnt work either. press starter button and it would turn over slow, then bind, though it was bad connection to battery so i tried bumping starter w/jumper cable same thing, removed starter tapped it w/hammer put it back on turns over just fine, spray starting fluid in carb and will fire and run for few minutes and die, so im sure the carb needs to be adjusted.

if you want i can walk you through the carb cleaning procedure in this thread, it's really not all that complicated as long as you pay attention to how you took it apart. all you'll need are some basic tools and some carb cleaner from wal-mart or the auto parts store. Also, it sounds as if you have a bad ground wire somewhere drawing current causing the battery to die. check all of your cables and wires, and then double check them again. if you remove a connection, clean it with contact cleaner(not a must but you might as well) and add di-electric grease to prevent future corrosion and debris intrusion.

, I dont know any places on the NE part of town. I know of a shop in the NW and shop in midtown and one in Katy, but nothing over there. cleaning the carb isnt hard ... but you have to be careful with that spring loaded pin ... its a beeoch!
as far as the way its turning over slowly ... ive been having that problem with one of mine too ... i bought a new battery, and it started up fine ... rode it for a day. the next day it was doing the same thing! Im starting to hate these chinese atv's! but you cant beat the price!

A little Sta-bil in the gas goes a long way towards keeping the gum out of the carbs.
