03 won't start

Alright...Here we go

Bike started cuttin out on me one evening when I started it..Reved it for a minute or two and then it ran fine...

The next morning it wouldn't start, and I haven't been able to get it started since then. I replaced the spark plugs and the battery, and the fuel pump engages and I can smell fuel when trying to crank it.

It turns and turns and turns, just never fires or anything, sounds like it almost wants to but never does.

Even tried using starter fluid but I didn't get anything from it then either...

Any ideas would be great

im sure someone has a better answer but if this was me. i would pull one of the spark plugs out and leave it hooked up. so you can see it. crank it and see if you see sparks. i do this on cars to test your basic no start. spark, fuel, air
