I could really use some help please

Ok here is my story. I took everything off my bike to have it painted. Put it all back together and now I have two problems. It cranks over really hard and only for a few seconds. I got a new battery and it does the same thing. Tried a couple other batteries and still the same. Other problem is I decided to pop start it and it started but cylinders 2 3 are not firing. It did start and run when I was putting it back together. The fuel pump primes. I switched 1 and 2 and also 4 and 3 coil packs and it's still the same. Then I unpluged them just to confirm neither were firing.
What kind of tests can I do to try to figure this out. I'm lost!

your bike was running proper before you took it apart to have it painted correct?
think of everything that you messed with to do this.
is it possible that you have disconnected something you are unaware of, or that you have not reconnected something you thought that you did. . .
generally when these things happen in this situation its a very simple fix.
take a minute or two to think about everything that you did.

Ya it ran after I put it together but it cranked hard. The bike sat all winter. I didn't get to ride it because I was waiting for a new chain and sprockets. I'm almost positive I have everthing hooked up. What could my hard crank problem be. It only cranks for ten seconds at most

well a common problem with storage is the quality of fuel. that seems to be the first thing to go. did you use a fuel stabalizer? have you drained the old or run it through to put fresh fuel in?
some poeple do not use additives but i use seafoam, i have always had success with it.

to get the timeline straight, correct if i am wrong:
you took apart bike, sent parts for paint, it was stored for winter, you put everything back together and then had these issues?

Ya the bike was parked for the winter took it apart to paint it a month ago. I started it a couple times with no plastics on but I had the hard crank problem so I thought it as the battery. the hard crank is my big problem that I don't understand

when you say hard crank what do you mean.
does it turn over roughly, or sluggishly. are you saying its just hard to turn over.
i dont fully understand what you mean

It rolls over like the battery is almost dead maybe Three or four cranks and then dead. Maybe ten seconds and then nothing. I have tried three batteries

ok.
you said you also switched some coil packs around. do you know if it was the same two cylinders not firing or did the misfire move along with the packs?

well its hard to think that its the starter going out , or something mechanical.

it seems more plausible that when you took the flastics off that you messed up an electrical connection.
get a volt meter and start at the battery and work your way through the systems. or at least take a close look to see if any of them are loose..

dropping to 9 volts is a big drop on the battery . more than it should be . you need to have the battery tested . if you had the case covers off the crank sensor is in there . if you pinched the wire or didnt install the sensor properly the bike will not run properly or at all all without this sensor in the perfect position . id look there and have the battery tested

The bike runs great but it start. I jumped to car battery and it starts. But it still rolls over slow. That's why I'm thinking ground issue
