Water is probably leaking onto your engine somehow and shorting out the plugs.

These are infamous for side stand switches that allow the bike to shut off and more importantly not start when side stand is down. Even worse is that it can activate even with side stand up. So either pull it off and short it out or clean up the connections.

Is the gas tank vent hose clogged or blocked. If so this will create a vacuum in the gas tank and the fuel won't gravity feed into the carb until the vacuum is released. Another possible cause is vapor lock in the carb due to heat. Check all your fuel vent lines for clogs (i.e mud).

My Moto Guzzi has been charging for 2 weeks, battery ok, lights come on, press start and nothing, tried to bump start a no go. ?

Hi, Adam before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Fuel pump does not start and spark plugs does not produce spark

I would first check with a voltmeter for the correct voltage to the fuel pump. Or I would hook up an external 6 or 12 volt (depending on the required voltage) to the fuel pump and see if gas is pumping to the carburetor. If you see gas or if you then hear the fuel pumping, I would then try start the motor with the external voltage still connected, then disconnect it and see if the motor keeps running. If it stops after you disconnect the external voltage, then you check the source of your voltage. It could be a corroded or broken wire or an open fuse up underneath somewhere.

Riding in temperatures more than 30 degrees C the bike cuts out after about 5kms, engine will fire then stall straight away. wait 15 mins and it starts again and runs fine for another 5 or so kms, any...

Sounds like the fuel pump is getting too hot and then it's causing vapour lock, therefor starving the engine. After the bike shuts off the fuel pump cools down it's allowing the fuel to flow once again. On my 2000 V11 Sport I solved this by shielding the fuel pump with an insulated foil wrap from a car parts store. Now the fuel pump stays cooler and I never had vapour lock again. Of course if your fuel pump is located in the gas tank then my suggestion will not help. Hope this helps.

Pushing the starter button results in only a click-

could be a kick stand switch or neutral safety switch. i would check both those as well.
