Pull the spark plug, attach the wire, ground it to the engine, turn on ignition and kick it over. It should kick pretty easily with no plug. You should see a bright, blue spark. A weak spark is the same as no spark. Could be that you just fouled the plug. Could be a bad plug. Did you check the gap?

We can have it at my place in Wesley. Guys could ride during the first part of the day and gather at my place later in the afternoon to eat. Wesley is a good jump off for several nice rides in the area.

Besides, i was raised a coonass and love to eat them mudbugs.

When i get back into it i will give it a try. I am taking a break I did not check the gap. I dont even have the thing to do it. I know i need to get one. The plug i took out was really black looking. They put the plug in such a pain in the ass stop on the XR 400. the thing is a pain to get to.

thanks scribe. i will give it a try tonight or tomorrow.

I am sure it is something stupid. Need to check the spark on it like Scribe said. Just taking a break right now on it. Need to get the seat and tank back off of it to get to the spark plug easier.

wowza what a 24 hour period.

hung out with a bunch of bad ass bikers for a while yesterday evening.

Took son to the lake to go fishing today, we fished some, but explored more just beach on a nice bank area, and hike around.

then we returned home, I realized when we hit fayetteville that I had left my wallet in the boat, on the water, in Rogers.

so drop kiddo off at hme, suit up, ride back to the lake, bike was nearly out of gas... I have no wallet, so cant buy.
rode like a grandmaw, really light throttle.

got to the boat, grabbed wallet, no bars of fuel showing, dumped in 2 gallons of 94 octane premix from the jetski stash...

rode back home just before dark, so about 497 deer in the ditches and feels along the way.

now im drinking a beer, and damnit, im tired.

Beaver.

Hey stuck, reading through your bike troubles.

instead of testing for spark the way Scribe said..

if its easy to open your air filter up, spray some starting fluid in there, or blow a few drops of gas in there through a straw, and kick it over.

if it fires a bit then dies, then its obviously got spark, and you have a fuel delivery problem.

Do i just spray it in there with the air filter on or take it off? Sounds easier then taking the tank off and the seat just to get to the spark plug.
