Hi all, I just rebuilt an e50 with a polini kit, 19mm, CDI set to 16 degrees BTDC, Proma circuit setup. the bike was running before I tore it down but it had a cylinder stud issue that forced me to replace the bottom half of the case so while I had it apart I put in new seals and bearings and case matched to the kit a little better than what the PO had done. I cut the top cylinder skirt off the polini kit to mate the case to the 3rd transfers better too. So I get it all back together and on the bike. I rewired the harness to clean up the routing and put the wiring connections into the area where the stock airbox is (that big hole in the side).
SO I have great spark, Compression is showing 170, and it seems to be getting fuel (wet plug, I cleaned the carb 3 times) but it will not even pop to try to start. just dead.
any suggestions on what I should be looking for other than what I already have? I was thinking maybe trying to lower the compression a little by adding head gaskets, or checking that the pipe isn't clogged, but this was a running bike before (about 6 months of sitting) can't imagine the pipe is clogged but I'm going to check later anyway.
