You could try some gas or starter fluid sprayed into the air box..lid off...if she starts = fuel issues to start..carbs need to be cleaned/rebuild/gas tank cleaned, new fuel filter, fuel pump issues..so many possibilities..you have to narrow it down by checking things. Good spark to plugs?? Yes a half dozen cranks can kill the battery once it drops below 10v's it can't start the bike, backfire could be valves out of synch firing with valve partly open..

I think I would, 1st-loosen exhaust at head and try starting (possible exhaust restriction)....2nd-check compression and timing (belts installed incorrectly).
My exercise bike is a goldwing.
