not trying to be a wise ass or anything but - did you take the rag out of the intake before you mounted the carb? couldnt there be something blocking the exhaust? have you taken the rocker boxes off for any reason? maybe the valvetrain is not cooperating?

we knowingly watched a friend do the rag thing on his car & it was pretty funny to watch him get all angry that it wouldnt start.

remove the pilot jet screw....make sure that passage is clear. Some carbs had the jet inside the carb, and some had it accessible after removing the float bowl. If it is clear, gently bottom the pilot screw..then back out 1.5 turns as a baseline. Also check the float level. It can be adusted by moving the needle seat. If your bike is high in the front, the carb leans back and has a harder time getting gas when using the tickler. Also when tickling the carb, have the bike straight up, so both cylinders get equal fuel. Hope this helps

I am having the same problem with my t-100 with a
monobloc. I was told to clean out the carb and jets,
did that with sonic cleaner and the bike started on the
3rd of 4th kick. It ran for two days and now back to
the same old shit. I cleaned everything again, even though
it all looked good. And nothing. I think its time for a new
carb.
