The bike turns over and most of the time there is a spark, but more often than not there isnt one, the AA man seems to think it is the pick up sensor, if it is i can only find one for sale as part of the spater any idea where i can get either just the sensor or a 2nd hand spator from ?

I am thinking that the kill switch on the handle bars is in the kill position. Most bikes have on the rh side that you can flick off in an emergency and it kills the motor. many times I have been caught with mine as it can move when you are pushing out the bike.
yes there is a way to test if there bad but its some work first take off the gas tank,then find your spark cable,trace them back to your ignition coils that may be were the problem is coming from.(im having the the same problem with my 1988 katana gsx600f) now how to test if there good or not is eazy.First; pick a ignition coil to check. Second; pull off one of the spark cables then the park pug make sure u do it one at a time.Third; now that u have the spark pug out of the engine plug it into the spark cable then try to start the bike will your doing this make sure the spark pug it close to touching the engine so that u can see if its sparking if it is go on n check to see if the other three are working. thats how i found my problem....now how my bike was acting before well it started but didnt want to start started it kept trying to die so i check the carbs the wiring n the fuse n nothing. now i tought it was my wiring because every one was telling me that so i replace my maintance harness n still the same problem. so one day i was thinking to my self "man what is going on in my babys mind". so i tryed to start it n listen for any weird sound. as i sat there listening i could only hear the bike trying to fire on one igniting.well it sound like there was enough power n i just charged the battery so i knew it wasnt that which lead me to the problem which was a bad ignition coil.... i hope i have been some kind of help well thank for reading n i hope u find out what your problem is...
hi do you still have thee metal case around the spark plug cap? if so remove it with a pair of plires as when wet the spark will earth out inside the cap, if the problem persists unscrew the cap from the lead try earthing it out and check here for aa spark, paul
You have done good - This is a shot in the dark but if the bike thinks the bike is in gear with the kickstand doen (kickstand relay) the bike will not start - look for a voltage from the kickstand relay (at the kickstand)
If it wont do anything then it is likely that youve popped a fuse
But it sounds like the battery isnt being charged properly. Make sure the voltage across the batt terminals is at least 13.5v at tickover rising to no more than 15.5v at higher revs
if the bike is undamaged it would because its been on its side probably fooded take a look at the spark plugs and give them a clean while they are out turn the engine ver 2 or 3 times replace the spark plugs and then try the engine
