You could have many issues with a bike that has sat for that long. Mainly fuel system trouble. As to why it won't turn over after trying to jump it...first place to look is your fuses.
Not much information to go by but make sure the engine has not hydrolocked from gasoline leaking past the needle valves into one or more cylinders. You cannot compress a liquid and the engine will lock if the cylinder(s) get raw fuel into them.
An indication of a hydrolocked engine is a click followed by a buzzing as the starter tries to turn the engine but can't.
Pull the spark plugs, make sure your ignition is off, and turn the engine over by hand. Lift the rear tire off the ground, put it in gear and rotating the tire by hand. If the cylinders have raw gas it will come out of the plug hole with some force. Do not pull the plugs an try to turn the engine over with the start button as gas flying out the spark plug hole may become ignited by sparks from the plug wires / plugs.

1998 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm owners manual


Hi, Apriliasyd the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Honda VTR 1000 Low fuel sensor problem


Hi,

On most bikes, the fuel level sensor is inside the tank and basically is a dampened float. The entire assembly could be accessed beneath the tank and would be connected by a single connector with two terminals. This pair of wire would then go to the instrumentation/cluster to trigger the fuel level gauge or in your case low level sensor. Often the connector would become loose or the terminals corroded. The sensor inside the tank could be tested with a continuity tester (DVM/VOM)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
