I had to jumpstart my bike today. After getting power in the battery so the motor turns over, it won't fire.

Not sure where to turn.

I have owned the bike for 8 years and other than a vacuum hose on the petcock problem, I have had very few problems with this bike. Now I am trying to sell it, I feel like I am having a Hurbie moment and she doesn't want to go.

Today took it up and down the road just to make sure everything was still functional

You went up and down the road, which if it was very short did not charge the battery.
Loose battery connections maybe.
You jumped it and it cranks, no start.
Was it turning over fast enough??
Tripmeters reset to zero???
Air and Fuel and it needs Ignition.
Check...
