Tank: Is it full and was there fuel stabilizer added to the fuel. If not there is more risk of corrosion. If this is the case, the less you run it the better. If it ran last year it will run now unless some rodents got in and eat wires etc.
If you get it at 1.5k its probably ok. I would take the tank off, clean it, take the fuel pump out, inspect and clean before any further attempts to run the bike. Then reassemble and start with fresh gas.
Whiles the tank is off, check the air filter to make sure no rodents were in there. And just check in general for condition of electrical wiring and connectors. If they are clean and have good contact, add dielectric grease to them and re-assemble.
Change the brake and clutch fluids.
