Hi Twinie,

Can you please tell me the brand and type of this awesome Red Bull helmet. I would love to have one myself.
Thanks in advance.

Hoo, so much to look for... I suppose the battery and starter are good, and that you have gas in the tank so:

Did you connect the Facet correctly (i.e., the Facet outlet to the carbs and the inlet from the tank? It wouldn´t be the 1st time people revert this...
Also, is there a spark at the plugs? Check this by removing one plug on each cylinder and holding the plug tip real close to the engine head cover. Then crank the engine with the starter button and see if a spark jumps. If it does, then the coils are good...
Check you didn't turn the fuel cock off... I'm just stating the obvious here...

The bike worked with the facet properly, the tank is full and I guess the reg-rec is fine.
I think I'll check the plugs first.
Could it be a faulty CDI?

It could, but the only thing I can think of that would kill your CDI (apart, from maybe using the wrong kind of plugs for a long time and at high speed and a faulty REG/REC giving off high charging voltage) would be a lighting bolt caused by a short circuit somewhere within the CDI circuit wires.
The AT electrical system is protected by fuses, so that is unlikely, unless someone has been tampering with the fuses and changing them for higher Amps... So check the fuses for correct rating and for continuity with a multimeter... wiggle the fuse legs from side to side to make sure there are no micro-cracks in the fuse legs. I've seen that happening with a fuse for the tripmeter... If the fuses are OK, then look at the spark plugs. If you do have a spark jumping from at least one plug from each cylinder, then the coils are good and so is the CDI (at least the side of the CDI that governs the ignition coils).

But the easy way to check for a faulty CDI is to borrow a good-known CDI from a friend's bike, a bike that you know is running OK and installing it on your bike and see if it now runs... Basically, before going nuts, try the obvious and easy things first... pump correctly hooked (don't forget to check the fuel pump relay located to the right side of the REG/REC - this relay is also commanded by the CDI), fuses OK, spark at the plugs... assuming as I said the starter motor runs... if it does, then the clutch and the side stand switches are OK and you don't need to check those...
