Question about Motorcycles
If it spits fuel, i would go for appropriate carb adjustment. Looks like it is giving in too much fuel.

Sounds like a weak battery. Swap batteries and see if it will start.
Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Is the gas valve on? Got gas? Check fuses. Got spark?
Clean the fuel system
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

this may or may not be the same as mine, but I have an 03 XLH 883 and it comes to find out that the Ignition location and componeets is a lot different in most models. Finding parts and information has been a travesty at best. First thing is, everyone uses a different name for the same thing. On my model as it turns out, the Crank/ Cam Positioning Sensor is the same as the Ignition Module. On other Bikes it is mounted elsewhere. From all the reading and searching I have done, each of the symptoms are slightly different, as well as components mounted in different locations. unfortunaly there is alot of confusion on this topic even though it seems like it is fairly common. the new module was quite difficult to locate and replace. PLus the directions/ wiring are quite vague and cloudy. The first Module has 5 wires but the new one only has 2. It is not clear which wire goes to which side of the coil, so be careful when you hook it up...

I would check the battery strength- if it is all lit up and you are getting ignition but it isn't starting, I would look to the battery first.
Have you tried jump-starting it with a car? Works for my K1200RS!

if its only on 1 cyclinder and your sure the carb and sparks ok then the next step is to do a compression test to see if the fault lies with the engine, i.e. valves, rings etc,
