DL650A 2013 won't start

We have put it in dealer mode, code comes up as C00 - no fault, yet the bike still won't start. Looked at the tip over sensor and that seems to be fine, checked the clutch and that also seems to be okay. Was thinking of looking at spark plugs however we're not sure where they're located, does anyone have any advice for this situation?
Tried the garage but they cant do pick ups because their van is busted ?

Not much info.

Did it run fine last ride? If so, GW always suggests cranking it with throttle wide open and see if it will fire. Often it will dry out the cylinders.

What do you see and hear when you turn the key? Healight? Fuel pump? Instrument cluster? Anything on the display? Battery voltage?

When you say won't start do you mean won't turn or won't fire?

... Need a little more info to help remotely...

Reporting precisely what is going on is what we need to start with as Marcham has written. We don't know if it was sitting there like a dark lump or was cranking like mad without firing.
