This could be a fuel issue or spark issue,first check a plug to see if you have fire at it,if you do, then it will be a fuel issue.

But im thinking if it is trying to start,it will be a fuel issue,fuel pump,or possible fuel filter clogged.

I had the same problem on mine not too long ago and it sat there for about a month and a half cause I was working out of town. When I got back, decided to spray some starting fluid in it. It started right up and cut it off after a couple minutes. Started right up thereafter.
