Urgent--bike won't start!

I sold my bike yesterday, and the guy is coming to pick it up tomorrow, but suddenly it won't start!!! We changed the oil in it, put a new battery in it, and now it won't start. It was starting before, but would die if we tried to give it gas, so I'm assuming that's because it needs the carbs cleaned (which we told the buyer about before he gave us money). Now my concern is we can't even get it to idle! In a minor panic here!!!

air, ignition, fuel
air filter clean? choke operating? spark plug fouled? getting fuel? Try starter fluid or carb cleaner?

Pretty much backing up what Chris said. Engines need air, spark and fuel to combust. You're not getting at least one of those. What year is your Ninja?

Oh man, good luck! My Ninja 250 has been pretty reliable so hopefully it's an easy fix.

Im guessing since this guy hasn't been back here he got his ninja 250 to work.
