I laid my xb12r over about 2 weeks ago, i cranked it up about a week ago and it started fine. i waited for the parts to come in and i put them on and now it wont start. I tried to push start it, nothing. i tried to jump start it off my car and it tried to start but wont turn over. im thinking maybe the spark plugs? i dont know, but it snowed a couple of days ago and froze and the bike was outside. now its 70 degrees and i want to ride it, but it wont start! any suggestions?

Tried to jump start from car, and it wouldn't even crank? If yes, then try pulling and cleaning your battery terminals, reconnect, and try and jump start again.

If it cranked over, but would not ignite, then that's different. Plugs would be a good place to start. I would just walk through the three things... fuel, air, and spark, and see what is not getting in there...

what parts did you put on it? usually when something runs before i mess with it, then it doesn't i retrace my steps and find out what i did wrong. probably an honest mistake. good luck.
