    check fuel isnt dodgy, most likely is after sitting for so long

    drain fuel through fuel tap
    put some fresh fuel in and top up oil, coolant ect
    clean carb
    stick a new sprak plug in there or clean up the one thats in it with a fine wire brush
    try bump start it
    charge battery

    good luck, iv found that most bikes that worked fine before and have been sat for yrs start without a problem but the above tips wud definatly help

    + maybe put a bit of pre-mix in the spark plug hole just to help with lubrication of the piston
