Starting problems on 2001 Superhawk

My superhawk recently quit starting. I was putting some carbon tape on the ankleguards, and I moved the bike around to the other side of the lamp so I could see the other guard (it was dark).

The engine ran when I did this. THen i finished the guard and got on and attempted to start it. Starter cranks and motor turns over, but it doesn't catch. I followed the manual procedure for a flooded engine, to see if that was it, and no dice... someone help me :-(

I've had the same problem with my hawk, a '98 model. Ran great all summer, then sat for a week. Went to start it, turned over but didn't catch all the way. Then I tried again and could tell something was wrong right away, starter sounded different, will crank the engine but no turnover what-so-ever. Very frustrating. Need to take it in for service.
Let me know if ou found anything out, I will do the same.
