2006 K1200s turns over/won't start
Bike sadly sat for the entire summer, tried to start it up, battery was dead. Bought new battery, bike turns over, but won't start. Like it's not getting spark or not getting fuel. Never had a starting issue before except a dead battery, but not a problem starting it after. Bike is well cared for, in perfect condition, only 8800 miles, I've only put about 1k miles over the past 2 years. Never any repair issues, has always run perfect.
Watched video of an older k-bike that sat for a year or such and would turn, but not start. They took the spark plugs out, and squirted 'oil?' into the cylinders. Then put everything back and it starts up. He says the issue is cylinders are dry? IDK?? His is a different bike, the cylinders are on the side, so I don't even know how to get to the spark plugs, LOL!
Thanks for any advice
