Question about Suzuki LS 650 Savage Motorcycles
Have you checked the spark plugs? Take a look at Them. Also, you might try grounding one while it's out to see if you're getting spark when you crank it over. This will eliminate an electrical problem

This could be a timing issue. I would remove the ignition/points cover
and check for freedom of movement in the timing advance mechanism. A
timing light will determine proper action. Shine on timing marks and
rev engine. Mark such as "F" will move as engine is reved and some
other marks such as "| |" will line up with timing mark.
If removing points/timing plate, mark plate position and where points wires go and remove points/plate/condensers as a unit. Test mechanism by twisting cam the points ride on. It needs to turn easily about 1/8 turn on its shaft. Look for free movement against spring tension and returns quickly when released.
If you disassemble advance mechanism, note cam position in relation to points. It can be assembled 180 deg out and not run. It must be free of grease and lubricants to work properly. Be prepared to adjust timing after reassembly.
It could also be carburator. The idle jets are seperate from the main jets and if they're cloged , the bike will idle but not rev. Cleaning the carbs can be done at home too. Refer to service manual because of the difficulty level.
Have a great day!

Your bike has got accumulated enough gas in combustion chamber due to which it is not starting up. So you are thinking in the correct direction switch the gas off for some time and try to start it later say 2 hrs. Meantime I will check out if it is possible in the layman style to remove extra gas.
