Worried about Rust

I live in FLORIDA USA. The cbr600rr has been down for almost a year. Will the rust be a problem? Also would I need to check or change the oil it's new oil but like I said it's almost been a year?

Oil doesn't degrade in any meaningful way by sitting in your motor. It doesn't care if it's in a plastic bottle or the bottom of your crankcase.

Only way to get rust on intake valves is for water to have gotten on them. Probably very high humidity does it, I'm not sure. If it's minor hazing, which is what it looks like, it will disappear in seconds when the motor runs.

I'd spray a little light oil, Marvel Mystery oil if you got it, down there and crank her up. Unless you're partial to tearing your motor down to check and clean everything.

You should always include year of bike and mileage when posting questions.

The thing I would be most concerned about is the valve clearances. I would add the mystery oil to the fuel also, and after running it a bit, tear it down to check the clearances.
