Unhappy LT cranks over but not starting?

From my automotive days, it seems like there is no spark to fire, although if there is a control on the fuel pump that could be the issue. I had the 12k service done, rode on a 2500 mile trip, bike sat in the garage for the past 4 days. Tonite tried to start it, no go, cranks over and over, but won't fire. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure the fuel pump is starting.. when you turn the key on you should hear it start. Your cranking so most of the key and emergency switch is set right..

Make sure you don't run down the battery.. don't know what year you have but the relay that keep the starter cranking can weld the points shut once the battery gets too low.. was a fix for that and a production change.

bossxii,

Do you ever get that "funny feeling" about certain things. This might not be the culprit , but could be, or maybe.........................
I knew I'd heard this somewhere before. Check these threads.

check the following:

Reverse switch...should be forward
neutral if side stand is deployed
kill switch off
neutral if centerstand is deployed
