Are the spark plugs firing ? Did you add a stabilizer to the fuel prior to storage?? If the plugs are firing, I would suggest that you drain the fuel bowl on the carburetors, disconnect the fuel lines and spray carbs full of a good carburetor / fuel injection cleaner and let it set a couple of days,then try to start again . If it still won't start, youmay have to disassemble the carbs and clean them in carb solvent.
If your bike has fuel injection, the gunk buildup from the gas may not be your problem. LAST RESORT Take it to a bike mechanic.
Hope this helps

check spark plugs,check for spark. check fuel is good. possible needle and seat gummed up in carb float bowl. disasemble and clean with brake or carb cleaner.do not change float level. re assemble ,you can use the cleaner to help to fire the motor with a shot through the carb. make sure you cleaner says flammable. good luck.

It sounds like it is time for a new battery. While the regulator could have been damaged during the jumping procedure, the symptoms you've outlined still point to a bad battery. Motorcycle batteries do not fair well from a complete discharge. Sometimes removing the all of the acid and replacing with new acid will provide another year of service, but not always.
My reasoning for the thinking it is the battery is because of it not being kept charged over the winter and it was working fine before then (charging system usually does not get damaged from non-use). If the bike died when you removed the cable while it was idling, this would suggest the battery as well as a magneto based charging system is very weak at idle and relies on the battery to supplement it during periods of idle. To test my theory, jump the bike off, rev it to 1200 to 1500 RPM and disconnect the jumper cable. If the bike continues to run but dies when you let it idle, then the charging system is functioning and the battery needs to be replaced.

Check to be certain the new battery is good. They can be bad from the factory with an internal short. Next check the fuses. Chances are there is a blown fuse.
