Question To flush or not to flush

Hey all.,
Noob owner and first-time poster so take it easy on my first go.😁
What does everyone think of engine flushes??
Have a 2001 600 thats been neglected and only done 5 miles a year for a few years. (Only 14000 miles on clock)
Is it worth considering or do i just change the oil every few hundred miles for a while?

Naw, change the oil and filter and ride. No need for a flush at all.
