Just pull the plug caps off stick a nail or somthing in the end of the cap leave a 1mm gap and see if you have ablue spark...If you have leave them alone..
When you drained the fuel did you drained the carbies before it was put in to storage? If you didnt you will have to remove the bowls and clean the Main, pilot and emulsion tubes........
Before you try any thing try removing the ari filter and spry a bit of fuel into the intake manifold (where the filter sits) if it trys to start make sure there is fuel in the bowls, if there is clean the carbies..as above..
