Question about 1999 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm
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.

if you can get to your battery, trace the red positive wire, until you find the fuse, or look for your fuse box, / pannel, and have a look in there.
