HI there! Can you try spraying some carb cleaner into it and see if it tries to start?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
yeah it tried to start, down to relay or fuel pump. go figure 20 bucks or 200.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 8 years ago.
If you remove the bottom of the back seat,you will see the cover for the fuel pump.You can use a test light and check for power back there.Make sure you have a helper with you though.The fuel pump will only get power for a couple of seconds if the engine doesn't start.At least if you check for power you will know whether it's the $200 or not.Also,don't forget about the fuses.There is one for the fuel pump as well.If it is blown,it normally indicates the fuel pump is shot though.Hope this helps!Thanks
