Winter time Blahs!

My son's 900 custom will turn over and acts like it's ready to run but is getting no fire! We checked the gas it's fresh and being supplied. We checked for spark and there is none. I ride bikes but have worked on them very little. More of a car mechanic. I'm not as familiar with the systems on a bike.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thumbs up Fixed it!

Actually we took the battery out and gave it a nice long s-l-o-w charge and today it started up on the first try and ran perfectly. I guess unlike a car or truck, it just needed to be FULLY charged.

Thanks for the suggestion!
