First, I would like to preface this by stating that I have already searched for this issue, but other people seem to have had slightly different issues than me.
Right, so I replaced my cylinder head, and I just put the bike back together sans plastics. When I tried to start it, it would crank, but to no avail (my battery was pretty much dead, enough so that it would die when I tried to start it). So I charged the battery, and tried again: still no start. Then I noticed that I probably flooded it. So I tried starting with WOT to clear it. I did this about 15 times for about 5 seconds each time, then tried to start it normally again. Nope. So I took out plug #4 and pressed the threads against the block and tried starting it. No spark. I did the same with 4 old spark plugs as well, but only with (coil?) (the thing that plugs into the top of the spark plug) #4.
Everything is normal when starting (fuel pump primes, no weird indicators on instrument panel, all lights work, and the starter is engaging). What could this mean? Bad battery? Bad relay? Bad (coil?)? Something else that I could have overlooked? I will take some pictures tomorrow afternoon for reference for you guys.
Thank you everyone.
