no start

Welcome limoboy, have you tried EASYSTART spray into the airbox? Has this bike not been in use for a while ?

Can you smell fuel anywhere ?

Hi Limoboy and welcome to the site:smile

Try draining the carb float bowls into a clean bowl to see if there's any water or debris in there .Is the fuel pump working ? replace the old spark plugs with new ones as flooded plugs very often become very unreliable, open the air box and check the air filter isn't blocked, in the day your bike suffered with a problem with the fuel pump fuel diaphragm tap located at the bottom of the fuel  pump,if all fails check it out,as it was an early problem.Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:
