1994 V-Max wont start

We've tryed everything. Choke on 10 seconds worth of cranking then choke off 10 seconds of cranking. and nothing. 10 pulls with choke on 10 pulls with choke off nothing. Put new plugs in it nothing.... Had the gas draned before it was put up so we put in fresh gas and nothing. Held throttle wide open while cranking and nothing....

Thoughts? Haven't tried ether or any of those methods yet. Thinking it might need a carb cleaning.

Cleaning the carbs every season is pretty much mandatory. I'd bet the idle jet has a tiny bit of crud in it, which is more than enough to keep it from starting.

start with the basics.

is there spark?
is there fuel getting to the cylinders(plugs wet)?

more than likely carb related. skip the starting fluid, pour a bit of gas down the spark plug holes(if you have spark) and see if it lights.

well that was easy!

be sure and verify its running properly. not a bad idea to check the cleanliness of the carbs. something made it hard to draw fuel and burndowns are costly!
