2004 gs500 won't start

My brother just bought a wrecked gs500 and it won't start. It has a new battery, good gas. It turns over but won't turn on, I've heard there's a tip sensor but I don't know where it's located or how to reset it. I've tried to search and found nothing. Any help is appreciated.

Im telling you first thing check the compression. Spray starting fluid into the air
box and give it a crank regardless if carbs are dirty i will give you some crank,
maybe even start. If it doesn't do anything check the compression dont waste
your time on cleaning carbs if the bike has no compression trust me been there done that.

Check the plugs for fire first. That will tell you many things. If there is no spark compression wont matter a bit. You will also see if the plug is wet or dry. If its wet you know you're getting fuel.

Well there is compression, and when I pulled the spark plugs out they had gas on them. I will pull the air filter off and try spraying started fluid and see if that gets me any where. Camaroz the bike is in greenspoint if all else fails I'll give you a call. Thanks. I'll try tomorrow morning and keep you'll posted.


Edit: plugs do have spark, shocked the out of me.

when carbed bikes are on their side the gas tends to mix in with the oil, if you have shity gas shity oil its never gona start, if every thing is in good shape and theres compression it will back fire really loud , dont use the choke and dont gas it when your starting it you have to clear them out

Sounds like the carbs need to be cleaned.
