I just bought a 2000 jr50 for my daughter. It ran fine but needed a little TLC. It was leaking oil around the bottom of the head, so I replaced the gasket and put new rings in. Put it back together, started it up, let it warm up, then rode it around the yard. When I pulled back in the garage it died. Now I can't get it to run. It has spark, fuel and compression, but doesn't even act like it wants to start. I've had the carb out and cleaned everything. Air filter is good appears to have some fuel blowback in it. The plug is pretty saturated after trying to kick it. Is it something to do with the timing?
