My 1989 GL 1500 Won't Start

I went out to fire up the GL this morning and it wouldn't start. It's been sitting for about a week because of weather. It turned over fine but just wouldn't fire even when choked. Any suggestions?

Was there a battery tender on it.?
Usually a no start but cranks is a low battery.
Volt meter test during cranking should be above 11 volts to fire the bike.
