Default Help!! bike will continuously crank but not start 08 Harley street glide

So I went out this morning and started my bike And it had a little trouble starting but it started I drove it to work and it sat for maybe 8 hours and I walked out on my break to started because it was cold it was about 45゚ outside and when I tried to start it a cranked and Cranked until the battery die so I had my dad come jump it but it still wouldn't start loading it up on the trailer And brought it to the house I put a new battery in it and it's still will not start it just continuously cranks and does not ignite the voltage seems to drop the but I would assume it would do that due of the could continuous cranking. thanks in advance anything helps!

Welcome to the forum.
Fuel and spark are where I’d start. Are your plugs getting wet?
i have a Harbor Freight spark checker, goes inline with spark plug and lights up if I’m getting spark.

A buddy had same issue, some jerk disconnected his fuel line. Couldn't tell unless you were specifically looking at it.

Pull and clean the "fuzz" off of the crank position sensor. Reinstall and give it a whirl.
