Default Another 850R no start

I have a 96 850R. That just died. Has gas at the rail and good spark. IAC is good. Will crank but not start any ideas?? Have to remove battery so no stored codes

removing the battery shouldn't clear the codes. U Check the fuel injector relay (up under the radiator cowling)?

I actually had the plugs laying across the head while testing for spark and got a nice little flame out the plug hole while crankIng so i guess fuel pressure is good. Haha

Unplug the MAF? I mean if you're getting fuel into the cylinder, and the spark plugs set it on fire.... It's not dead, it's merely a little confused.
