Use Marvel Mystery Oil, it will loosen the rust that you may have incurred while the bike was sitting. Just one word of caution, if the mystery oil does get the pistons free I doubt seriously that you will have any significant ring seal left. You may be better off removing the heads to see if there is serious damage. You can easily bend a rod if you are not careful and it's not worth destroying the engine because of the rust issue.
What most likely has happened is your cylinders suffered from condensation which will promote the rust. The pistons will not rust, (they are aluminum), but the rings and the cylinder walls will. You may need to simply remove the pistons and run a quick hone through the cylinders, put new rings in and be good to go.
By no means should you attempt to push start it or anything remotely close. You can take a wrench and try turning the motor over by wrenching on the end of the crankshaft where the electrical stator is. A small amount of rust will stop the starter motor from turning the motor over.
Let the Marvel Mystery Oil soak over night before trying anything like turning the motor over. You may be very surprised and lucky if it works.
Best of luck to you.

St1300 will not run below 2000 rpm


your bike has three different fuel delivery methods...choke , low speed or pilots in the old days, and main fuel rails or mains in the carb days. your choke or idle circuit is not working. on fuel injected bikes you have a relay which you need to get checked to see if it's a possible contributor. best to take to honda dealer and they can diagnose the problem. hope that helped a little sir.
