I only had 2 cycle oil and decided to try it for my fuel mixture and of course the bike wouldn't start. I bought some 2 stroke oil today and mixed some more fuel and the bike still seems like it's not getting any spark. The spark was new and put in right before I tried to start it with the 2 cycle oil. Does the carb need cleaned? Not sure what to do.

2 cycle oil??? Maybe I'm misunderstanding something here, but 2 cycle oil and 2 stroke oil are the same concept. Your bike won't be kept from starting by running a different oil in the same ratio. Sounds like you've got something else going on there. Test the spark plug while it's out of the cylinder to see if you have spark when you kick it over (might need help doing this), then if you've got spark I'd say pull the carb and give it a thorough cleaning....how's the air filter? How old is the gas?

What oil, specifically, are you using? (list both kinds)
