Damn finaly!!! For three days I've been in the garage kicking and kicking. Double checked everything, Mike AKA surfi- biker came over and he kicked on it too.
Well today I decide to take a close look at the basics to make suere I didn't miss anything. Checked and rechecked the timing, tested coil, plugs, and plug wires, regaped the points ect. Then I checked the carb, there was a small leak at the supply fitting and it seemed that the float was stuck. So I pulled the carb to fix those small probs. Didn't think they would keep it from firing but I figure what the hell right?
Well when I get the carb off I look in the intake and I see the blue rag I had stuffed in there to keep the bugs out!!! NO wonder the fucker wouldn't fire.
Well I pulled the rag (which I'm going to frame) bolted everything up and tweaked it a bit. After a bit of kicking it fired!!! MAN WHAT A RUSH!!! Tested it up and down the street a few times and noticed a intake leak so I parked it. I'll replace the seals tomorow, make a few adjustments to cltuch and idle and ride dady ride!!
Special thanks to Mike, I know he reads this board so maybe someday he'll pop in and introduce himself.

For now I'm going to open a Negra Modelo and enjoy the glow. I'll take a pic or two soon.

Are you serious!?? That is funny shit right there!

After you called, I thought about it for a long time, and was just as stumped as I was when we talked.

Remember what I said? "Go back to the beginning, and start over.. Its probably something stupid" haha

Congrats on getting it up and running!
