try a different plug, then try shootin ether thru the carb. if that wont fire up then you have elec. issues

Alway's start with the little things first, because most of the time that's all it is. First, try a "new" plug. If still nothing, check the coil wire and cap. Then check all the electrical connections and the switches. If everything is getting a good connection, then you may have to go a little farther, like checking the stator, cdi, coil etc. 9 times out of 10, it's always something simple. Let us know what you find.

tried different plugs, and like I said, it has spark, but I will try again, its a good workout trying to get that POS to run.

Just for giggles, turn off the gas and kick it full throttle a few hundred times just to make sure its not flooded. When you put that thing back together, are you sure you put the timing chain back on the right teeth?.

just one question. have you set the valve lash? :shock:

Did you check the ignition timing? That kept my 200x from running once, it was like 180 degrees off.
