    I've done the following; installed new plugs/wires, ignition coils, battery, fuses and had the carbs cleaned. My bike will start one day but not the next. What else should I investigate?

  3. check your battery too. don't know if you are kicking only or what, but a low battery makes my bike a devil to kick over. I ride it for a few and get a charge, and all is well. then while I am idling her around futzing on her, I lose the little charge I got and it's back to having to jump her off.

    Mine didn't want to start either, turns out my timing was off. Check your timing, and get an old bike guru to hold on to the handlebars when you kick!!:D:thumbsup:
