Are the new plugs firing (i.e. is there spark?) if yes then it is a fuel issue. when you turn the bike to the ON position can you hear the fuel pump prime? if yes then you have an issue with the efi. either way you should have a dealer look at this. as it is an 2008 model it should still have a warranty.

all in all take it to a Certified Dealer!!!!

2003 Buell Blast starting problem

It may depend on what you call choking the engine off. If you actually choked it off you may well have flooded the cylinder and plug with gas and now have wet plugs. Often in high performance motorcycles like your Buell even with a new plug that has never been fired or only fired few times it it gets wet it may still look brand new but refuse to start the engine because it got wet. SO, try new plugs and do not choke it off when you want to stop it.

98 nissan pathfinder 3.0 wont start new distribitor no fire

What do you mean "the battery still no fire"?

Do you mean that there is no spark at the spark plug?
Have you pulled out a plug, grounded it and cranked the engine to check to see what colour (if any) the spark is?
If there is no spark at the plug, then either change the plugs if they look to be in very poor condition, or change the coil.

Wont fire

You have to check of there is sparks at the spark plug and also if the fuel is being injected to the combustion chamber.
Crank start the engine for a short while and thn remove one spark plug, if fuel is injected you will see tht the plug is wet.
To check for sparks to the plug, wipe tht plug dry if its wet due to gas, thn earth the spark plug body to the engine and crank start, if theres sparks you will see.
If you both of these thn it the engine must fire.
I guess one is missing.
Hope this helps!

Engine wont start but turns over battery is ok can smell a little fuel which i assume means my filter is not blocked just wont fire up

If it smells fuel means that you overfilled the cylinders with gas.Take out the spark plugs and check if they fire.That way you are checking the ignitions coils too.If they fire,install new spark plugs and crank the engine with the choke pulled and no throttle at all.Assuming that your carbs are cleaned and corectlly adjusted.
If the coils don't fire then you should check the pulse generator sensor and make sure that it's pulse is transfered all the way up to the ECU.

95 sportster wont start. Everything was running fine until now.

do a basic test .try starting the bike, then take out a spark plug. is it wet or dry? if its dry, no gas getting into the combustion chamber. if its wet, place the thread of the pluged in spark plug against any engine metal, crank the engine and look for a good blue spark. no spark or an orange spark means ignition problem.

Had the head redone, new Carb fitted, new distributor cover and leads new spark plugs, crank timing set to mark (0)and cam timing (2e)set to mark on head. the engine swings, fires from the carb, spark on...

Sounds like you have your timing off. If it is backfiring, that means that 2 of your wires are crossed, causing the plugs to fire on the exhaust stroke versus the compression stroke. Recheck your timing.

Bike wont start

What do you mean "take out 1 plug"? Spark plug's plug?
Spark plugs are renewed?
You should also check the gears/sprockets that connects the starting motor with the crankshaft if all of them can spin freely around their pin.
