I you are getting spark and a good one at that and it was running and just quit I would look for fuel next and long before tearing a motor apart. Also if I ruled out a fuel and spark problem I would check for valve adjustment next You may be able to find some answers by the change in valve adjustment from last time. You can also loosen all the decomp adjustments and find out if you have good compression. You will be able to tell when you try and kick it past tdc on compression.
IMO a valve problem that was not a major failure would not stop the motor from running. Maybe I am missing something.

cheers m8, I took the bike into the shop to have a full service done prior to me taking the bike on any long days out.Full service as in plug filters valves checked etc etc.The shop has not done any work as they wanted the bike running before hand. I asked if they could do the service anyway to eliminate any of the above factors but they have refused,could it be the bike shop have no idea what they are dealing with??

Skinny,
I had a similar problem with bike not starting and also thought the stator.
However stator was fine and the problem turned out be be a oring in the float valve sticking and not allowing fuel into the floatbowl.
To check for this pull the bowl off the carb and turn the carb the right way up and check to make sure that the needle in the float valve moves freely up and down and does not stick in the fully up(closed) position.
Hope this helps.
My bike is also an 03.

Regards
Stolliberg.
