Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
Take out the plugs and spray a good long shot of WD-40 into the cylinders, replace the plugs, but leave then disconnected from the plug wires. Gently kick start or electric start the engine. If it will ot budge, the engine is seased and will require dissasembly and serious rebuild. If it does move and frees up, drain the old gas, replace it with fresh gas and replace the spark plug wires and attempt to start it. If it starts, don't' be alarmed by it smoking at first, that is the WD-40 burning off. If all is well, the smoking should subside and the idle should settle down. If the smoking worsens, turn it off and take it to the shop. I can not be held responsible for any damage that occurs to this engine, try this at your own risk. Make sure you are in a well ventilated area too. Good luck, be careful.

Check your tyres, it depends on how you left them as to how they'll be now.
By now most if not all of your oil will be sitting in the pan, so you won't have any on the critical parts for start up. I would put it up so the back wheel if off the ground and put it in to a high gear say about 3rd or 4th then turn the back wheel by hand which in turn will turn the engine over, it will also free up the clutch plates which by now may have gummed up and may prevent the engine from turning over.
Once it all feels good, you should be able to crank the engine over to lubricate everything fully. When you decide to ride it, don't baby it to much. Be gentle on it at first and then literally blow the cobwebs out of it. Most motorcycle restorers do this. Treat it like you would a new engine. That means, giving the bike varying situations loading it up on a hill for example by being one gear to high, revving it out a bit, and going on a long ride. This puts an even amount of stress on the engine rather than just one type.
