after that amount of time with no usage, it would be wise to completely disassemble and clean your brake parts. Look carefully for any sign of pitting and/or corrosion of brake cylinders & pistons, both master and slave units. If you make it past this with no trouble found, replace ALL the rubber parts in the entire brake system, they will likely be hardened from lack of use, and may not seal completely. Flush the brake lines with new fluid BEFORE you put it all back together!

Good luck,
