KXF 250 won't start

Recommended Posts

The bike won't even try to start. Timing is spot on TDC. Getting spark on the compression stroke. It wouldn't even fire with a squirt of starter fluid. We replaced the head gaskets and installed a new coolant pump. I don't know what to try next. Maybe sacrifice a chicken and an exorcism.

It is a 2009 KX250F New head gaskets and new coolant pump. The bike sat for about a month and a half. It's getting spark on the compression stroke, the spark looks weak to me. Before these minor repairs, the bike ran good. Started on the second kick. Now it won't even fire, at all. I checked to confirm that the timing chain didn't jump teeth on the cams. The spark plug shows signs of fuel, yet it won't fire even with a little starter fluid. The cams are at 10 and 2 with 12 post between the top dots. I'm baffled.
