Exclamation 2003 CBR won't start, need assistance

I have a 2003 CBR 600 RR
It has a full tank of gas in it (since the last time i rode it)
It has spark
Fuel pump sound works when key is turned
The battery was recharged today (02.26.09)
It turns over


It wont start


I started it like 4 or 5 days ago while I cleaned out the garage, came home today and wanted to give it a start but it didn't want to start up. I kept turning it over and killed the battery. I went got it fully charged, came back and tried again and got the same result. EVERYTHING seems to be in check (see list above). I tired over and over and everytime it would just turn over and do nothing but waste battery...

Could this be because I flooded it????

Thanks for the help guys!

How do you know it has spark?

Your plugs could have gotten fouled.

Ok, I went back home today to give it another try. Nothing. So it's not flooded. It looks more and more like the spark plugs i guess.

What kinda sparks do you guys recomend?

Also, how hard are they to get to? I remember someone posting a PDF of the CBR manual anyone have that? It'd really help me out!

Thanks!

**Please post manual sites here**

NGK spark plugs are good.

For a 03 600RR it's IMR9C-9HE for the Iridium IX's

to get to them you have to remove your tank cover, then tank, then air intake box

it's cramped in there though so you'll need an array of different length extensions
and plan on bustin your knuckles a couple of times

Thanks for the part number on the plugs!

It did sit for a while. It sat in a warehouse for about 3 months (honestly) without getting started (i know, not smart at all).

When I got to the warehouse to move it to my parents house it started right up. No hesitation. Put new gas into it, rode it home, and put it away. A few days later I came back to clean out the garage so i needed to move it out of the way. It started, I moved it and put it back.

Come back like 4 days later and it doesn't start.

I have an 03 manual in PDF format. It says I have to remove the right and left fairing, move the radiator away and get to them like that. Doesn't say to take the tank off. Which would be easier????
