2002 honda silver wing has been sitting for a while. I fire it up every couple of months with no problem. I have replaced the battery one time. This time I tried to fire it up and battery was dead. Left it on the charger overnight to charge up. Checked the fuses were good and put in new gas still wont fire up. Please help.

Is the motor turning over? If not you need to get the battery load tested. If you used a regual automotive charger on a motorcycle battery you might have fried the battery since the car battery will take more amps than the motorcycle batter.

My Honda silver wing has got a fully charged battery but it won't start

Hi, Cieran and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC,or BAS).
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box if applicable.
17. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
18. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.

Cycle has been sitting about 6 months. when i start it gas pours out from under tank. I mean a lot of gas - it would drain the tank in a couple of minutes.

Has to be a faulty tap, they work by vacuum, or a crack in the fuel line. I would start by replacing the fuel line. check the link.

If that model has a fuel pump, you should check the fittings an seals on it. Specs are oddly worded for 'Fuel Control'.

My bike sit for 2 months and now it won't start.

Yes the fuel can get old sitting in the carbs, as they are vented.
With luck you may be able to open the drain screws on the bottom of each carb and drain the bad fuel and it may start.( a squirt of aerostart fluid may help it fire)
Sometimes when fuel dries out in carbs it leaves a residue which can block jets, this needs the bowls removed and cleaned.
Charge up the battery while you do this, as i have had batteries that put out enough amps to spin the starter motor, but this drags the voltage down and the electronic ignition wont fire.

I just bought a 1982 honda goldwing that has been sitting for 1 year. It has a new battery and head. It wouldn't fire at all and I adjusted the valves and it runs but only on one side. What could it be?

Sitting would most likely be bad gas in a carburator. Verify that the spark is good, look for mouse nests in the air box, and make sure the carburators are not gummed up with old gas....assuming that it didn't run good before the valve adjustment.
