So I am working on repairing a bike and I can't get it to start. I feel like it's a really obvious solution. The electronics are fine. It's a new CDI and I get spark on both spark plugs. Fully charged battery. Full tank of gas. To the best of my oil checking abilities there appears to be plenty of oil.

I don't know the status of the carburetor, however the right side of the bike worked before I replaced the CDI.

Could it be because I hooked up the CDI wrong?

This is dumb, but check the air cleaner. Mine had been filled by a mouse eating sunflower seeds, but during the winter. And make sure the air box is drained.

I'm really sorry, I'm not sure what it was, however I checked the connections between the wires and tightened them up. And then switched the yellow and pink wires and then when I switched the wires back it started.

So. I'm sorry for taking up people's time. I'm not sure what fixed it but it works perfectly fine.

Thanks
