It sounds like your ingition switch has failed. This is fairly common if you have a key fop that flaps in the wind. Pretty eash to switch them out. A HD switch is about $60.00 I got an after market that was $20.00.

It's got to be a problem with gas, air or fire. If electrics are all good and starter is turning over, check the air filter and make sure it's getting gas.
