2002 ZX6-R, 2034 miles...

So, the bike hasnt been ridden hard for a few months. Started periodically... ran fine. Then, today, the guy Im buying from, who I know well, is going to deliver to my house. Starts fine, idles... He jumps on to put out on street.. as he gives throttle, bike slowly dies with a poofing sound. Tries to start it, all it does is hispeed click. Engine doesnt crank. Fuel filter not clogged. Slight amount of water in fuel. no lines clogged. However, when trying to start, no fuel pumped out of fuel pump to carburetor. Also, found that ground on battery did not have nut attached. Dont know if that matters on motorcycles. Also, had battery issue last year. Compression start; engine tries, but wont catch. Any ideas? Were in Germany, US Army, so hard to find dealer to talk it over with.

The engine DOES crank on push start, but it doesnt catch... it just winds down til you stop.
