1998 zx7r starting issue

Hi all hope you can help. My ZX7R wont start, it turns over but wont fire. Iv checked and its sparking on all 4 plugs and its getting fuel to the pump and to the carbs from the pump. Iv only had it a few months and its always been hard to start and very hard to start when warm but now not at all.

The previous owner had it Dynojetted to match the full Micron exhaust system along with a K&N Filter. It was aparently setup correctly on a Dyno and have a read out as proof. It had been standing for a while when I bought it so I have drained the carbs and cleaned them out and are now like new but still it doeasnt start??
Any advice would be great... Thanks Waza

I sometimes try a "SMALL" shot of starting spray just to be sure its a spark issue and not fuel delivery. If that does not get it to fire then start looking into electronics.
