Default Should I get my injectors cleaned?

I bought some 370 CC RC injectors about a year ago from another forum member. The injectors were only used for about 3700 miles before he sold them to me.

They HAVE been sitting in a box beside my computer the whole time collecting dust. Should I be worried about them being dried out? I'm planning on (finally) installing them soon so I'm trying to avoid noob mistakes and engine explosions.

Quite easy to test:

Just put 12v on them. If they click, they work. You might wan't to fill up the tank and add some injectorcleaner. Stick to the right mix. Stay off-boost if you do not trust it.
If the engine idles nice and does not shake when idling, the injectors are fine.

Thanks, I'll give the 12v test and see what happens. Don't have boost yet, so no need to worry about that.
