DRZ400SM won't keep running

Recommended Posts

Please help. 

Motorcycle has not been started for 4 years. Starter turns motor over, it starts occasionally - then dies. May run anywhere between 30 seconds and 5 minutes. Does not seem to respond to throttle most of the time (sometimes it does briefly, other times if given gas it just dies immediately). 

Any advice on where to start? I have never worked on any motorcycle before. Should I just take it to a shop, or is there anything I should try first?
