it fouled a plug on day so i replaced it and now it still wont start. :bang: the plug sparks fine, i took the bottom of the carb where the jets are, no problem there....anything else i should check out? any help will be greatly appriciated. thanks
Do you have feeler gauges? Do you know what TDC is? Do you kmow how to line up timing marks and where they are? The best money you are going to spend will be on a Factory Honda Service Manual for that bike. It will tell you everything step by step. There is a chance that with a basic typed explination from somebody you could easily do it wrong and cause damage.
ok well i dont think its the valve clearances. because if it let the compression out then it would be easier to kick. my friend said it might be the wiring becase xr70's have a bunch of wires. more then normal bikes do
So if you don't have a set of wire crimpers will it "not" be the wiring either? Here's a little clue for ya. Wires go bad FAR less often than valves go out of adjustment. It's not a huge deal to make right and will increase your enjoyment.
Considering the way you are jumping around on your aparent abilities and/or lack of them it's hard to help ya' out. Here's a tip that should help you get accurate information and help that might get it running. Be honest and be specific in what you did/didn't do. You are asking for specific information in step by step form but you are not providing detailed descriptions of the problems or steps you have taken.
Here's a check list:
-New spark plug?
-Clean air filter?
-Carb is clean and floats are properly adjusted?
-Spark from plug is good?
-Valves are properly adjusted?
Bike should run if it doesn't then it's one of the above.
