    07 12GS cranks but won't start

    On a ride in Oct bike quit suddenly. All lights come on, bike cranks per normal, but won't start. I've owned bike from new, its been well maintained, all recalls performed- i.e. EWS antenna (247) and fuel pump controller. I've posted on AdvRider as well, had some good feedback pointing me to electrical shorts/glitches. I'm posting here to broaden my search for direction. I appreciate anything you've got.

    Start with basics: Spark? Squirt? Timing? Compression? Then chase what is missing.

    Not starting

    If running fine when it quit. 3 things Fuel Air Spark. Check these first before looking for complicated things.
