    Do you have a compression tester? And leakdown tester are important tools to have for checking the health and diagnosing engine problems. If you can give as much information as possible the better.clean air filter and clean gas mixed32:1 if oil injection was deleted?

    Was the topend rebuild done with a cheap ebay kit? If so that is probably your problem. Unless carb is flooding. Or a very lean condition.can cause a bog also. When you kick it over does it fell like it still has good compression

    There is probably still gas in the crank area.with spark plug out and ignition off!!!!!! Gas off!! Start kicking. Holding throttle wide open and try to get more fuel. Out of crank area. Maybe leave plug and exhaust off overnight to evaporate some. Need to go get a 4pack of b8es plugs. The plug in it is probably fouled.if plug is fouled it won't start.after trying to get gas out of crank area.new plug, and try it

    If I were you I’d stay away from cheap Chinese kits. Go with wiseco or something reputable, You’ll be better off and happier in the long run.

    X2 on the Chinese cylinder kits. Bring your cylinder to a machine shop to get measured and bored.let them know what kind of piston you want to run .they can get piston and gaskets.and wristpin bearing, reed gaskets,exhaust for you.thats easiest way. Especially if your not
    Familiar with the process. I would recommend getting a manual. Top ends are not difficult to do.if done right you only do it once:D
