    Dr 650 sp444a won't cold start

    Hi everyone, I'm sorry I don't know this forum well I'm from France and having a lot of trouble with my DR 650... Let me explain. This is a 1992 sp44a Dr I bought this summer. 30000 km, had a bit of trouble to start the first time I got it but it was okay after I got the right technique. Immediately I noticed it was a pain to cold start but after it had started I could kickstart it no problem. Anyway when I left it to go back to work in Paris it was running great and okay to kickstart. Before I left I unplugged the battery and poured gas stabiliser in the tank with the gas. Came back two days ago for a 1 week holiday and I planned on riding everyday. First I had to change a fuse cause I it broke after I plugged the battery. Then I tried to kickstart it for ages, didn't start. I have no decompression lever but I reach the etc, kick a little further to pass it, then let the kick go up again and kick the hell out of my bike. Nothing happens and soon enough it feels gasoline. So yesterday I tried again after having unbolted and cleaned the Sparks and it started after a hundred kicks, stalled, started again immediately and the stalled again. Since, impossible to start it again. The Sparks are new from this summer, when I had a hard time starting it. I'm guessing maybe the Sparks caps ? Or maybe there is too much gas reaching the chamber, the Sparks are really quickly wet when I try to kickstart it. I'm desperate, no garage will look at my bike until I go back to Paris 'cause they have no time for it and I don't know what to do. Check the electric arc on the Sparks ? Maybe i do the Ring thing kicking it ? I don't use the starter and usually don't touch the gas when kicking but sometimes when I'm too desperate I do give a little gas and... Well nothing. Could I have your opinion ? Also when I clean the Sparks, put it back and kick several times, when I take it off again they're already black.... I know nothing about bikes I'm Keen to learn tho. Thanks anyway for your suggestions. Best, Tristan
