a few simple checks
Ok, I might not be able to come over right now but heres a few pointers. An engine acts like a huge air pump (whorehouse therory) SUCK, SQUEEZE, BANG, AND BLOW. Or INTAKE,COMPRESSION,IGNITION,and EXHAUST. Develop a problem with any of these and presto your engine won't start or run. If its cranking over nice and fast and it's getting fuel then cross those two off. Remaining problems could be but not limited to Weak or no spark, Weak or no compression, Improper ignition timing, improper valve lash *highly unlikely*, worn or fouled plugs, or maybe its not pulling the fuel from the carbs into the cylinders. This works on pressure differences so getting fuel to the carbs is only half the battle.
To be honest there could be lots of reasons why your bike isn't working, but I can't really be specfic without seeing it first hand. Check over these simple things and maybe you'll find your problem. If all the simple checks fail its possible you have the cams in wrong *improper valve timing*. If all else fails I'm in north phoenix on 31st ave. I'm always looking for side work so maybe I can help you out if needed. If all else fails give me a ring at my place (623)594-3304. Good luck to yas......
