Default Re: Dead Bike

I'll be even more specific than they were. Fuel, make sure your carb is clean and the fuel flows good. Compression, make sure everything is torqued properly and there are no air leaks. Spark, make sure the plug is firing good by unscrewing the plug and holding it against the motor to ground the electrode on the end as you crank the motor over a few times.

Check that stuff and let us know if there are any problems. This problem has been handled before and some folks get a little bothered when a person comes along with a problem that's been solved before, in other threads. If you check those things we've listed your bike will most likely start when we're done.
