2011 Ranger 800XP Won't Start

Went to use my Ranger today only to discover it will not start. The engine cranks over normal but there is no attempt at starting. It was running normal when I parked it a couple of days back.

I am sure that it could be many things but would like to ask you guys for a few more common failure points to start checking.

Glad you didn't take offense at my humor! I am thinking maybe you have a wiring problem somewhere? If it fails to start again try the starting fluid trick without touching anything else. If that works then IMO that would point to a fuel delivery, bad fuel or perhaps bad spark plugs.
Hook up an auxiliary fuel soarce. If you don't have a spare electric fuel pump get one to supply new clean fuel from a can. A spare fuel pump hanging around is always handy to have anyway. I am just saying this off the cuff since I do not have a shop manual handy to reference anything about the stock fuel pump, I assume there is one in the tank and the fuel delivery can be simulated.
I only run no ethanol in mine since it sits for long periods sometimes while I am away at work. I learned my lesson a few years back with ethanol fuel in my boat, drove me crazy for a year until I emptied and flushed my tank.
