Seems to me that a new motor and carb it should run. I'm wondering what kind of motor builder reuses the fouled plug the bike came with? :applause:

I know dude I am just as pissed off that he did that..He also didnt take the oil out of it or replace the oil filter which really pissed me off cause the oil filter had metal pieces in it from when the motor was blown up.

How in the hell do you rebuild a motor and not change the oil?

I know man I was so pissed. It is a dry sump system though so there was oil in the crank case still like a good amount which pissed me off.

For one thing, I'd advise you to read the manual. The spark plug gap is listed on page 2-2 as .7-.8mm (.028-.031"). The minimum spark gap listed as 6mm (.24") is for a spark test covered on 6-4.

If it still won't start, go talk to the people you had working on it, and ask about the oil at the same time.
