When I got home I tried and the bike fired up rode for a few miles and it cut off. I changed the plug and cleaned out the carb.
Bike fired up and ran shut it off and went back today to ride and bike would not fire all it will do is turn over.
Any help in trying diagnose the problem so I may ride before I go back out of town would be helpful.
Check for spark.........smack the CDI.......with a screwdriver handle on the back,,falling over might have hurt something else,,or it could be a coincidence too......

Got spark??

Got gas??

If the bike was on it's side for some time and the petcock was turned on you very well may be out of gas.

I have read the quick shot 3 should work on my carb as well,


also how much did that quick shot 3 set you back? I'm trying to find the best price on one.

I have a ton of room under my QS3........ i`d have to drop the carb at least 3/4 inch or more......and push it ahead towards the manifold to hit the starter....how much different is the slant slide body wise is the question..

Adjusting the QS3 is gonna require my Snap On tools carb adjusting tool though......it`s made to get in tight areas,,,,,,,but sutre beats the hell out of changing freekin leak jets anyday


Put the carby in tonight was gonig to change the throttle tube and cables,,but i decided i was to hammered to carry on......

How much have you tried cranking it with out it firing up? Maybe you killed the battery, or wore it down so it won't fire.

Check and make sure you didn't accidentally hit the kill switch. Not that I have ever done that

My XR must be a freak... over 27k miles on it and doesn't use a drop of oil between changes.

Mine uses that much but it has 32K on it.
The valve seals are probably dry rotted.
My bike sat for a long time before I got it.
It didn't use any oil for a while then sort of all the sudden it would smoke at start up and use about 1 oz per 200 miles or so.

I know I need to do a top end job on it but I'm too hammered to do it now. Been drinken home made Texas beer, man I gota get into that stuff.

LOL, it just fell over? Right. Heard that one before.
Maybe check the clutch micro switch?

The clutch is still on the left side aye, I so hammered I can't remember.

Don't tap on the CDI unit. Give it a good rap or two.

If the solder joints have failed, you are trying to knock the connections back into place.

Thanks again, I made a little measuring template from what I could gather from your measurement and some other pictures I have found on the internet and from what I can see is it may fit by a "C" hair If at all from what I can tell, so you saying there is plenty of room is reassuring, If you get inspired could you take some more pictures around the QS3 installed? maybe I can get a better visual idea to compare.
