It could be bad plugs, plug wires, a bad ground will do this as well. Check to see if it has the three main things.
Anther common problem is the crank shaft speed sensor. It will cause it to not spark and not start.

Did you check the condition of the spark plug? If the plug is good do a compression check; a very low reading could indicate a sticking intake valve (sticking open). The easyest and cheapest way to fix a sticking valve is to introduce 1/2 can of Sea Foam into the air intake manafold; just follow the instructions on the can except you will use 1/2 can instead of 1/3 can. That Yamaha motor from what I have found collects tons of gunk on the valve stems. Good luck.
