Question about Harley Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide Motorcycles
Check crank position sensor or immobiliser system as you have not spark at the right time. Immobiliser may be a battery problem in the key unit. Have the codes read

Did the bike fire at all when you sprayed starting fluid? If so you have a gas supply issue. Make sure supply line into carb is OK, and maybe you need to take carb apart and make sure the jet passageways are clear.
If it did not fire after spraying starting fluid, then you have a spark issue. Either new coil, CDI box or it could be a weak battery as well.
By the way, be very easy on using Ether/starting fluid on the bike. Too much of that and you can detonate you engine pretty easily. I would squirt a bit of gas in the carb and stay away from the starting fluid.

Testimonial: "No it did not start, when i sprayed fluid into carburetor. I also sprayed starting fluid onto the spark plug and still no change. the battery is new. Do you think it might be Crank position Sensor? if so where is it located?"

it the bike has been sitting for a long period of time. the carb. can gum up. pull the carb. off. clean it up really good. insuring you get all the small ports clean. then try it again.
every dirt bike i've had requires a oil wetted air filter. dont forget about that.

remove all of the old fuel using a siphon bulb and hose. Put in brand new fuel and make sure the line from the tank to the carb. is flowing gas. if not clean or replace the fuel line

remove the drain plug from the oil pan, you will need either a 3/4" box wrench or a 5/8" box wrench and the drain plug will be facing forward on the the oil pan. It is easiest to remove this drain plug from under the right side of the bike. put drain plug back in after about 10 m,inutes of drain time and tighten to 18 ft. lbs. Dont forget to change the oil filter as well.
