Luxe has sat for a long time

So i bought my luxe from DLX via DBS and it has not been aired up of anything. I got it last december while i was on deployment and now im just days from being home, is there anything i should be worried about or does it just need a new coat of lube. Also would you guys have any idea if i should change out the battery or should that still be good too.

I know this all sounds really dumb but im a first time luxe owner.
thanks for all the help in advance.

Just check the battery for any corrosion, the battery on these things are pretty good, i wouldn't be surprised if it held its charge while you where away. I would recommend cleaning and re lubing the regulator and powercore. Once you've finished ENJOY IT, thank you for you service need any assistance feel free to message me

Clean it, lube it, charge it. It should be good to go.

I recommend getting an o-ring kit, not being able to play on the weekends waiting for replacement parts sucks.

First, welcome you home.

It depends to some extent on the condition it was left in, where it was stored and how long your deployment was, etc. However, in all but the most extreme cases, it should be 100% fine. Clean and re-lube the bolt system as well as the regulator and recharge the battery and you should be good to go. Keep in mind they often sit for a long time in stores or warehouses before being sold.

I would check to see if the o-rings are stale or dry or if the battery has corroded
