Default Re: Finishing First Build - Leftover Parts??

Here's a followup on my current progress. I haven't gotten the engine to fire yet and I have no idea what's preventing it from doing so. It turns over fine, clutch seems functional, I switched out spark plugs, tried 2 cdis, and checked the carb for fuel flow. I'm pretty new at this, and the only things I can think of now are pressure or fuel somehow not being used by the carb.

However, I've tried pulling the spark plug out of the engine and giving the pedals a good push to see if it's sparking and I have yet to see a spark. If the plug is new and cdi is good, what is preventing it from sparking with a good push?!
