02 Swing, 18kmi – won't start...
The bike cranks, instrument panel lights up (3/4 full), can hear the fuel pump run, even gave a couple putts when I first tried to start it.  
History: I stopped riding it in Nov., it fell over on rt side during winter, the battery was low so I brought it in and charged it up – holding 12.75v. Also replaced the cable for heated gear that feeds through and comes out under seat.
 
Pwr of postive...cleaned the plugs and it's fine – NOT! Plugs have gas on them (replaced press reg 2yrs ago).
Not so much, more like 2 $7 sparkplugs + a crosstown drive and I HOPE it's running.
Did spark test and have spark. Think next step will be to jumper from truck, after that pump out old gas, maybe check air filter.

Anything else i should be checking?.

You say the plugs were wet with gasoline.
That means either too much fuel or no spark.

You say there is spark at both plugs. Then you have either flooded your engine or you have too much gas from another pressure regulator problem.

You say your bike fell over in the winter. Perhaps that caused fuel to flood the pressure regulator.

My suggestion: If the plugs are now dry, try cranking the engine and see if it starts. Don't crank for more than 5 seconds. If it doesn't start, hold the throttle full open while cranking for another 10 seconds. If it then starts, you know it was flooded. You will need to pinpoint why it was flooded (tip over, gasoline/ethanol separation, turning the throttle while cranking).

If it still doesn't start and the plugs are again wet, perhaps the fuel pressure regulator failed again. Check the vacuum hoses to the regulator for tight fit. Then pull the vacuum hoses to each throttle body. If there is any fuel in the vacuum hoses going to the throttle bodies, you have another fuel regulator problem.

From experience... Check the usual suspects. Make sure the kickstand is up and the sensor says so. Also make sure your brake sensors are both hooked up and working. (If you squeeze each brake separately, do the brake lights come on?) My starter sensor on my left brake (US) came loose once after installing a velcro system to hold a drink. It took me longer than I'd like to admit to fix it despite having plenty of power, gas, and a real desire to get home even in the rain.

If the bike hasn't started in a while, you may find your gasoline has gone bad on you. In any case, you may just save yourself some hassle and take it to a qualified Honda motorcycle mechanic and let them do a spring tune-up for you.

Good luck. :-)
