We replaced the battery but LX50 wouldn't start. Next day, it would start, run for a few minutes, then die. Giving it more fuel would also kill it. Did this several times.

We drained the gas tank thinking it's bad gas (daughter hadn't ridden it for a year).

Not sure what to try next--put in fresh gas, check a filter, other?

Any help is appreciated.
