First thing you want to do is check your spark plug gap. Improperly gapped plugs can cause a non-start. If all is good there, check the compression. The fuel-air mixture needs proper compression to ignite.

1997 Honda vf750c turning over but not starting


In order for it to start, you need to find out if it got spark and fuel. If you thinks it fuel, you could try a small shot of starting fuild into the air filter box. If it fires and then dies out it definitly lacking fuel. If it does fire up with starting fluid, you need to check spark. Remove one of the plug wires and install a spark plug on it. Gorund the plug to engine by resting it on a metal part. Locate the plug as to be able to see the gap on the plug. Crank engine over and check for spark at the gap. If no spark check kill switch. Ed
