Yeah, it has oil in the trans. Per the manual, I tipped the bike over a few degrees with the drain screw removed and instantly saw oil come out so it looks to be full (and fresh too).

I think the fuel might be fine though. Instead of letting the thing idle for a while on the stand as I had been doing so far, I decided to get it started while peddling and see if I could ride it around the block a few times. It started without much of a fuss and I could indeed ride it around. But the idle issue still exists. If I let off the gas and try and coast, it just dies within a few seconds. And this seems to be the issue regardless of the position of the idle screw.
