Spark plugs not firing

the spark plugs on my dyna are not firing- rode it in the morning and then in the afternoon (approx. 3 hours later) I went to move it and it would not crank- I have checked the circuit breaker and fuses and they are okay- battery is fully charged- but the plugs are getting no fire- did a lean sensor reset and this has not helped-
anyone got an idea what could be wrong or what I need to check next?

If it's not cranking then that's your first troubleshooting step, how do you know the plugs aren't firing? You can't just hold the plug on the head and check for spark

Not only that but plugs have to be in te head to fire, ckp reads the slowing of the crank on the compression stroke knowing when to fire, you can hold the plugs against the head and check for spark, but you have to install a dummy plug in the spark plug hole as well
