Welcome to the forum! I believe you're are getting some good advise. If it's been sittin' don't forget to empty/flush fuel tank and replace with fresh.
Check out the air filter and box and check for any little critters that may have gotten in there.

Second that... I would just pull the carb and soak in carb cleaner for a day or two and blow it out. Should be good to go AFTER you repalce the fuel. Also, after sitting a year I think it would pay to go ahead and stick a plug in it...Welcome to the forum!
