Default How long do you let your bike sit?

Fired up my ZRX in the driveway yesterday and it ran pretty rough. Needed the choke for twice as long as usual and I had to blip the throttle for 15min or more til the RPMs smoothed out. Coughed, sputtered and belched (the bike, not me) until it finally ran smooth.

It sat for 2 1/2 months without being cranked which is the longest ever since I've owned it and I'm wondering if I should go into the carbs now. I leave fuel in the lawnmower engine over the winter without a problem but never a high performance engine like this.

That damn motard's got my attention now and the poor Kawi is stuffed in the corner. She'll forgive me come spring, I hope.
