Check the fuses and then see if you have spark to the plugs. Got spark, then check fuel flow.

Check the kill switch ........ the first time I knocked mine the bike coasted to a halt ....... took me a few minutes to work out why.

Second thing is check to see if there is petrol in the tank ........ silly I know But ......... :oops:
