Have you checked to see if there's water in the front cylinder spark plug well? Damp plug wires? Old spark plugs? Clogged air filter?

Begin... the rest is easy.

Is it showing any interest at all, or just cranks with zero sign of life?

Have you tried holding it WOT while trying to start it? If things aren't adjusted just right....they sometimes need a little more air to start, and can wet the plugs. WOT will help dry the plugs and it will start....if it is going to.

The spark will stop if you move it away from the engine.

As Ken said you need the plug earthed to get a spark. Check your battery, ironically you might have enough volts to turn the engine over but not enough for a decent spark. Charge it up overnight and try again.

Not sure what you mean by this, are you saying that your plugs spark even when they are not connected with a lead. Now that is odd!

Hi dunnie, did you get your bike sorted as it sounds the same I am having on my 2006 model. Changed the stator, changed the front coil, changed ecu, changed the battery, still no joy. Think I may have got water in front cylinder when I washed it! Must be the weather we are having here in Kent!!
