Default Re: My Bike Won't Start

Post some photos of your engine. I'll approve them regardless of your post count.

I agree with MBR in that you don't have a good electrical connection to the spark plug.
We usually suggest to get rid of the kit supplied spark plug boot and replace it with an automotive type. That will require a new spark plug or at least one with a cap on top instead of just a threaded post.
Get back to us and post a photo if possible.
In the mean time drain your fuel tank and carburetor and start again with a fresh batch of fuel and oil mixed in a separate container and shaken well before filling your bike's fuel tank. Don't use the recommended 16:1 ratio. That's too much oil. Go to 24:1 and you'll be good.
