what year SVis it? does it turn over or is it dead at the button???? check your ignition fuse..probably not the main fuse if u have panel lights...
you say you haven't ridden for 13 yrs. I take it you are doing the obvious?
Clutch in, not in gear and kill switch to run?
Modern bikes have kill switches everywhere to stop you binning it. Especially when pulling away.
If you are doing these then a check of the clutch switch and side stand switches are in order on your post 2003 FI 650.
