Start with a compression check and then make sure that it is getting fuel.

^^^^yep, remember you only need 4 things for an engine to run, fire fuel air and compression. it has to be lacking one of these to not run.

When you have done all that and still come up empty, try this:

Cut 3 sections of common soda straw (can be stolen from McDonalds, 7-11 or whatever),

Cut them equally 6" long. Pull out all three plugs and stuff a straw in each hole. Rotate any one of them to TDC. Measure each one from the top of the head cover to the end of the straw and record. Stroke the crank to the next cylinder to TDC and measure again and record the numbers. Do the same thing again with the last cylinder and record. When you have done all this, compare your results. The numbers should jibe. What you are trying to do is measure stroke to check to see if your crank is out of phase as in a perfect world the crank stroke is concentric. Its a bit neandrathal to do it this way but it works. If you are several degrees out of phase you should see it in the differences of measurement. It wont tell you how much but it will tell you something is fucked or its ok. The best way is to do this with a TDC finder and a vernier caliper but this meathod will at least tell you if things are really out of whack. Should be within 2 degrees I think, Jon knows for sure. I used this meathod to determine a misdiagnosed crank out of phase on my XCR8.

Heres what had happened to me back in mid 90s, I bought a '95 XCR6 with pipes, heads and trail-ported. I was racing against a friend locally and somehow, I slapped a drivebelt. What I didnt know, it would causes havoc on the crank. Less than 2 weeks later after a night out of riding, it rode home fine. Next morning, when to start it up, the sled wouldnt run, not to mentioned it keeps backfiring. I found that the carb on the clutch side came off the boot - put it back on, same thing, backfired and blew the carb off again. I didnt even understand what was going on. I took it to the dealer and he told me I twisted the crank. I ended up with a new crank and the sled ran good once again. The dealer told me, with the XCR6 I had, the next time the belt snap like that, I should have my crank checked to make sure it stays true before running her again. WL.

Pull your carbs off and visually check your pistons. A broken piston skirt will really make you scratch your head.
