    1998 gp1200 no fire

    morning all ive got a 1998 gp1200 yesterday friends had it out riding. after about 3 hours it stalled assuming it was out of gas they towed it in. after refilling they tried to restart it spins well but no t even a try to fire.i tried to start it with some spray start fluid and still no fire. i checked the fuse and it looks good. i pulled a spark plug held it to a ground and i see no spark. im a shade tree mechanic at best where should i look next? help please im your willing student.
