A few more clues and we might be able to help you. What bike and year, when was the last time you had her fired up, have you checked for spark?

:thumbsup:

for electrical, you cannot check the CDI, only eliminate everything else first. get a hold of a manual and ohm out the coil, stator, trigger, spark plug wire and compare the results to the tolerances. if you don’t have a manual, try a search on this form; people may have already posed electrical tolerances from their own troubleshooting experiences. also consider changing out your spark plug if you have not done so already (eliminate that item), and lastly, check your valve clearances. out of spec valves makes starting difficult.

Hope this helps.

Wait, back up: How do you know it''s not the carb?

The most common starting issue for XR/L's is old gas and/or a clogged piliot jet.
