Is it sparking? Have the coils got a good earth? If so, is the plug getting wet? If not it may be a fuel blockage. Open the tank in case the breather in the cap is blocked creating a vacuum. Is the fuel tap working? pull the line off the carb/throttle body and see if it flows fuel when turning the motor over. Is the choke stuck on? Give the ignition switch a spray of contact cleaner, likewise the kill switch. No luck?
Use a compression gauge on all cylinders. Bit low? Put a bit of oil down each plug hole and compression test again. If the reading gets higher its likely to be rings, if not it'll most likely be a tight valve clearance.
Still no joy? Next move on to ignition. Find TDC on no.1 cylinder and check the static timing. Has the pulse coil/interruptor slipped on its mount? Will the bike bump start? If so it could be the source coil.
Still nothing? Give me a ring and i'll come have a look at it for you.

Most of the girls that guys go after are like this. The "9's" and "10's" of the world are emotionally high maintenance usually.

Sorry- but not all women think like this. You got a problem- tell me, I am not a mind reader, if you say you are fine - I believe you. if you act all moody and rude for no reason you get a one day pass, then either cheer up or tell me what the problem is. Or leave- Whatever...

Ahh the battle of the sexes. So much fun to play. So awful to lose. And as men... we always lose... so why play at all?

Even if he does tell her he gets a, "You love that bike more than me!" So when they break up she is going to mess with it.
Fun thing is to read the first entry as a male voice.

"See...my husband and I don't have this issue because we actually TALK TO EACH OTHER! If he has a problem with something, even if it is something I am not interested in, he still tells me and vice versa."
She's probably the kind of woman that rolls her eyes whenever he talks about anything man-related.

"Motorcycle won't start... The new iteration of ignition system board I installed last evening seems to not be putting out as much current as is needed by the compact, per cylinder coils. Fell back to the previous version and got spark but, not fuel as that board was blown by the new model injectors.
I'm going to up each power channel's trace width by another .2mm and etch another board after getting material for the copper electrolysis tank.
-Remember to up the current in the tank a bit to strengthen the through holes.
-Buy 40 4A diodes and 3 microcontrollers.
Chick is looking a little down. Can't wait to get this thing running and take her for ride. 600cc's and 150HP at over 100MPG just from modernizing the electronics. This will put the factory in the black!"
The next day, she told him she was leaving. He never finished the project...

And if you asked him why he didn't explain what was bugging him, he would have said "Why would I? She doesn't know anything about motorbikes."

The story of my life has been written in two paragraphs.
This is such an absolutely typical example, repeated almost verbatim the western world over.
