I would start with the fuses, then check all connectors for looseness and corrosion. Check the plug wires for damage. It could also be something like the kill switch, but that controls the starter. check the red w/black stripe wire at the coils for 12v with the ignition switch on.
Hope this helps

Battery

Doug covered it pretty good, there is an ignition fuse. Only other thing if it has set for a while and the battery is low try jumping it. If the battery falls low while cranking you might not get a spark.

Yes, Sugar Bear thinks Doug and Dave have pretty much covered things that could getter goin again, from the old school guy, go with what those boys say, think you will be happy Dave talked bout the battery needs to be full, he is totally correct, Sugar Bear dealt with that very thing, little things make a world of difference.

I guess I was assuming (bad thing) that the starter was turning the engine over. Usually means the battery has enough juice to start the bike. if all is well. But the battery could aslo be an issue.
