Ugh ok so after I drained all the coolant out of the crankcase from blown gaskets, now the bike won't start at all. Checked spark, getting fuel, even changed spark plug. Any other ideas people? I need help!!!

Turn the fuel petcock to the "ON" position...... make sure there's fuel in the tank.

 

Wait.  Did you say you blew a head gasket?

Are you sure it's getting spark, fuel, and air?

It needs all three to run basically.

I'm sure it's getting air, but make sure it's not getting too much fuel, but getting enough.

Stick your finger in the plug boot and push down on the kickstart.

You'll know if you have spark or not...

You don't have an exhaust plug do you?

And did you fill the bike with oil a couple times?

Make sure your carb isn't stuck wide open. I've had it happen before after I blew a head gasket and sprayed a good amount of carb cleaner and gas in the chamber and started it once to find out it was full throttle.

Also, have you torqued the head correctly and made sure everything is to factory spec? You can blow gaskets if you head isn't torqued right.

Other than that, kick it a bunch without the choke. Bumpstart it and if it puffs and sounds like it wants to start, do it again. I found it's one of the only ways to get em to start after kicking it forever. At least then you'll see what's wrong with it.
