Spraying starter fluid into the intake tract while cranking is a great way to confirm that the air and spark part are working. It bypasses everything involved in the fuel delivery. If the bike lights up easily on an intake spray of starter fluid you know that your problem is fuel delivery.

You could unplug the headlight to reduce electrical system draw during this test.

Thanks - was able to get it fired up after charging the battery. The battery came with the bike and I have no history on it. It ran ok - great over 4k. Feels like it's missing under 4k. Has a very "partial" exhaust note, almost sounds like a high revving thumper under 4K (but above idle).

One step at a time.

Just bringing this to a close. My issue was the battery. Replaced it and have been zipping around since!
