You could test for fuel issues with a little shot of starting fluid just to see if it wants to light off.
already tried that and didn't even sputter :screwy:
If it's getting fuel then it has to be either spark or air....did you pull the filter to make sure it hasn't become home to something?
F*** work.

agree. I removed the filter to clean it and have yet to reinstall it since I don't want to wash out the filter oil with go-juice.

It is good to see that my feeble mind is still in concert with the DAMN Borg on bike troubleshooting and maintenance! :lol2:

I'll start back in on it this weekend. The week so far has been real rough. :barf:

It is a KTM with 596 miles on it; it's probably time for a new engine anyway......
