How old was the gas in the tank prior to the month long park under cover ?
Did the bike run fine before this ?
Check for spark by pulling a plug with the boot attached and hold the firing tip near the engine block. Crank the motor over with the starter
a few times. No more. A spark should be seen across the tip.
Make sure you hold the plug with a glove on. Keep it very close to bare metal. Like a bolt head . Check both one at a time is fine.
If it's firing on both cylinders most likely the issue is fuel related.
If it's not firing on both Cylinders, Replace the plugs and try again.
Check for stupid things like the kill switch on the throttle grip. Make sure it's off NOT ON.
Make sure kickstand is down and Transmission in Neutral .
In any case try to get someone to help you drain or pump out the gas in the tank. And then put fresh gas in.
This would be a good start to getting it running again.
