The clutch is not slipping and I bought an NGKB6HS. Kicked in right away 2 times. I came to a stop sign and pulled the clutch while it was running. Figuring this is how you idle, and she refused to come back to life, I cleaned the spark plug off and tested for spark again, also I dismantled the carb and reassembled it. Its the NS speed carb, there seems to be a problem getting fuel into the engine because when I prime it the gas goes down the hose when I push down and when I release it gets sucked back up in the hose. I've read that the tank can create a vacuum. But I don't want to start drilling all Willy nilly lol. Let me know what you think. The clutch also doesn't get pulled 30degrees. Its more like 10-15 but it can be engaged and disengaged, I think. First bike so I don't know much lol tell me if this matters too. But for those 20 minutes when the bike ran I felt like I could accomplish anything lol. I'm looking forward to getting back on the road asap

Loosen your gas cap and see it runs. There's a common problem with gas caps not being vented properly.

Are you still trying to run this thing on 16:1 gasil mix? And what oil exactly are you using, not motor oil I hope?

Have you pulled the plug and with the gas off pedaled it around to blow all the crap out of the crankcase yet?
It is fruitless asking for help and ignoring the most basic but most important stuff.

I switched it up to about 25:1 and its high quality 2stroke motorcycle oil.I tried to start it and it seemed like no gas was getting into the engine I smelled the ne sparkplug w NGKBP7HS and didn't even smell like gas, I poured a few drips of the mixture directly into the engine still wouldn't start. Took gas cap off still wouldn't. Than the spark plug cap from the cdi fell off and I don't know if connecting the wire directly would be a good idea or not. I'm at my wits end on this hunk of junk

stripping back the insulation will allow you to wrap the copper wire around top of plug, then put a nut there to hold it
