Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
8. Check 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 if necessary.
9. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
10.. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
11. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC,or BAS).
12. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
13. Faulty fuel pump fuse or relay.
14. Tilt sensor needs a reset.

Oil got change. Bike will not start. Change the plugs in it. Check for spark. Act like it want to start but it won't start

if theres a spark at the spark plug then your problem is with fuel. take out spark plug and pour a cap full of fuel down the hole,put plug back in and try to start it. if the bike starts you could be lucky and it will keep running. if it dose not then you need to check fuel lines and carb.... putting a bit of fuel in the head should fire the bike up and hopefully fill the carb and lines to keep it going

I have a 2003 Harley Davidson 1200 sportster,

Cab or injected ?
If carb looks like an leak at the Oring manifold .Try to start and spray any carb cleaner to the manifold close to the cylinder ,.any change on idle would be an air leak!

I have a 2001 cbr 929 had fallen down in garage did not hurt it but now will not start two days later turns over and pump turnes on still no fire

Try replacing your spark plugs. The cycle fell over so they may have become wet fouled with gasoline. If money is an issue then take the spark plugs out using the wrench in the tool kit, heat them up with a torch, check that they spark, and put them back in. If after getting the bike started with the old plugs, it runs rough, replace the plugs with new ones.

Hi problem with my gsxr 400 replaced the engine but the engine was running before i transplanted it into new bike now the engine will not start it is sparking and when u put petrol or easy start into the...

there is not too many combinations of firing order to check.
one coil fires plug 1 and 4
the other coil fires 2 and 3
just turn the flywheel past the pick up for 1,4 and make sure the coils are correct
the only other things that could happen in a straight engine swap are exhaust and inlet gasket leaks and incorrect fuel line , vacumn hose.
I assume all the wiring is replaced in the correct plugs

I changed plugs oil fuel filter engine turns over but won't start. Are plugs pre set or do I need to take them back out and gauge them?

plugs are normally preset,not sure of your bike but sounds like you may have put plug caps on wrong plugs and firing order is now wrong. if its a 4 cyclinder bike , 1-4 fire together as does 2-3 . # 1 IS L/H SIDE OF BIKE SITTING ON IT

Following my bike's fall, the bike will not start ...

Hard to say depending on how hard the bike fell etc. If you damaged the stator in the fall that would be one explanation for it not starting and the battery not holding charge. If it's got fuel and spark it will start. If you have a reasonable amount of fuel in the tank the petcock won't create a problem unless the fuel is off, but there should be enough in the carby bowl/s to get it to fire and run. Any problem of excess fuel in the combustion chamber after a fall should dissipate in a few hours. Try and ascertain if you have a spark by taking a plug out, reconnect to the lead and put it against the head so it earths and kick over. Don't touch the plug - nasty current and dangerous, especially if it's CDI. You will soon see if you have spark or not. If the spark is OK it will be a fuel problem. Also, if it has a kill switch check it wasn't accidently bumped into the off position in the fall. Good luck

My sons stopped his 2006 vtx 1300 at the gate to open the gate, bike fell over onto a mulched unpaved ground. On it's left side. But won't start. Any troubleshooting suggestions? Thanks

ok start with switchs kill switch,side stand switch, clutch switch. if the motor is spinning but won't fire clean or replace your plugs, when if tipped over it could have flooded the motor and fouled the plugs.
Let me know if this helps, if not we'll take the next step
