04 zx10r not starting

Hi all,

Just recently bought my zx10r from an auction that it seems has been sitting at the tow yard since Sept 2016( from towing invoice), and just got a new key for it. Put the key in, and it starts cranking fast but does not crank over. Checked gas tank - can see gas moving around freely so ruled out gas problem. Took battery out, connected booster cables to positive and negative battery lines, still same problem ( was suspecting maybe faulty battery, but with this test I dont think so?).

Was wondering what to check next that could cause my bike not to fully start...maybe starter motor, alternator, spark plugs? Wanted to know what you guys would try next.

Thanks in advance for your kind help and let me know if you need any further details.
