Just 3 things are needed to fire a cylinder..
Spark
A bit of fuel
Compression
One or more is bad.

Maggie1; When was the last time the motorcycle was running? When I left my '78 GL-1000 sit idle for two years after my surgery, it did not want to run either. I never drained the gas or did anything to my bike at that time, except, it has always been garage kept. I did a complete carb rebuild, and if immediately started right up! 2WheelBoy
