Thank you for all your help Alex. It was fun to get to know how a motorcycle works. A Good learning experience.

I'll let you know the outcome goes.

Update. Cleaned and put the carburetor back on the bike. Drained the fuel tank. Gas was clear and clean. Started the bike just cranks.

Ran a compression test with my finger and i feel a light amount of air/pressure. Ran a compression test with a gauge and full throttle: 0 PSI. added a bit of oil into the cylinder and ran a test: 0 PSI.

So I believe it must be internal engine failure. I have a good battery. Starter is working. Carb is clean. I have Good fuel. Air filter is clean and exhaust seems good. I have spark. All wiring is connected.
Looks like I've checked all my boxes.

Do you know of a Good trustworthy mechanic who can open my engine?

Yes I have spark.

Just took the carb apart. It's CLEAN!... I should be happy but Dam a ditty carb would've made my day. When I removed the top, it did not spring up. The diaphragm was stuck to the top. I put it back together and then took it off and it sprung up. Maybe the diaphragm was stuck?

Gonna clean it and put it all back together and see if it will start....if not do a compression test maybe I blew the cylinder. In hindsight I remember seeing the Red Temp light go on when it shutdown on me on the highway.

Side note, can you tell me how many volts your bike is showing with the key on. I'm getting 12.4-12.5v. That should be enough or do I absolutely need 12.6v

Oops just sent it twice.
