    I have an '86 sporty,883.Haven't started it for about 2 weeks,and now it won't start.Tried starting fluid,but no go.Pulled a spark plug,grounded it to the engine,and turned it over ,but I didn''t see any spark.Where should I start looking for the problem.Also,when I pulled the air filter,it was soaked in oil.what gives there?Thanks in advance......

    Check for power to coil first, check wiring out of cone area for power, oil in AC could be over full or venting issues in heads
