99 Yamaha Big Bear Sign In

I HATE the GOUT!!! Gout is BAD!! It HURTS!! O K, I"m done ranting. While I was down with GOUT in my right ankle, the 4 wheeler sat in the chickenhouse for about 12-14 days. I use this to pull my lawn mower, it cuts 5 ft @ a time & we cut about 5=6 acres. Went out to start it and it acted like it would like to but no. Plenty of fuel & air but no fire. Checked the plug, changed the plug, put a spark checker in between the plug and cyl head and there is no fire. Anyone know where to go next? I quit there and hobbled back to the house. It's a 1999 Yamaha YFM 350 Big Bear 2 wheel drive, bought new and has never had anything repaired, just serviced. Thank you.

Well I don't work on bikes CH so you probably know more than me in this area but considering it ran fine, sat & now has no spark. I would probably be check the grounds & wire connection for corrosion or moisture, especially if it got wet.....

Got my sympathy on the gout....Got a buddy with it and it sure looks painful...

Kill systems, ground, bad coil.
My best three guesses!
