Hi, first remove the spark plug and check for a spark, once thats proven check the fuel system, as said previously. Note: unleaded fuel is a nightmare in stored bikes. i was told not to drain the system, but to run the engine on a regular basis, draining the carbs leaves a residue in the galleries and also glues up the jets, you can end up wanting a new carb.

A bike stood for 3 years l would change all the fluids, oil, water and brakes. Hope you get it sorted.
