2003 Preditor 500 wont start!! turns over has Spark PLEASE HELP

Anyone that can tell me why even with starter fluid it will only turn over and over and not start would be helpful, i replaced the coil already but with fire i dont want to spend the 250 bucks for the computer. Any suggestion?

Have you adjusted the freeplay in the throttle(ETC)Electronic Throttle Control?It may not be opening.That will cause that problem.This is something to try before you spend $250 bucks.

"If" the ETC adjustment is the problem,yes you would have to adjust it.Do you have any freeplay in the thumb throttle at all?
