SOURCE: wont start
3 things are needed for combustion (compression, fuel/air mixture & spark). if fuel is making it to the carb and out the drain tube, then it might not be a fuel issue. i'd turn to spark and see if that fixes it. it has for me on dirt bikes and ATVs. one minute it was running, shut it down for a break and when trying to restart, nothing. changed out the spark plugs and viola'....she's alive again. never had luck with NGK plugs.
worth looking at the air filter too. make sure you can still see light through it when holding it up to a light. and you should feel/hear a suction while trying to start it which means the passage to the carbs are clear.
try this. petcock on try and start it. try for a few seconds (<10 sec) to give a start. stop cranking and immediately pull out the plugs. are they wet? if they are, then fuel is making it to the cylinder.
take a look at the plug. is it black (like its running too rich?) or is it very white like a new plug (lean condition)? should look like light brown toast if its running right. throw in a few new plugs and give it a try no matter how they look to see if this works.

place a volt meter at light socket to see if you are getting 12 volts. check same at fuse. if both have no power, switch may be faulty, im assuming the lights come on when igntion turned on, so look there.

Does it work at all? What my issue on a 97 CBR F3 was is that when I bought it the speedo would act as a tach and when revving it would show that the bike was going up in speed sitting still...all it needed was a ground wire ran to the back of the cluster.
