I have an CX500 motor strapped to a Go kart I just recently got it I drove it a few times until I popped the chain, a day later I washed the kart and fixed the chain. When I went to fire it up I got nothing, I checked for spark I have spark at both plugs (they didnt have much gaping so i gaped them to 0.50) I then pulled the carbs and inspected them, the float needle was stuck on one carb so I replaced it, and blew air through every needle, whole and, passageway those carbs have, installed them and still nothing but a fire and bike fire out of an carb, im not sure what else to do now, I read and timing is fixed since its cdi... #*#*#*#*#*PLEASE HELP*#*#*#*#*#*# Motor vehicle Vehicle Car Automotive exterior Engine

I think you've just got water in the ignition system somewhere.

Spray everything over with water dispersant and allow to dry and likely it will start. Check the drains from the sparkplug wells are clear. They are the holes on the sides of the heads.

Also, gap the plugs back to standard. 50 thou is a huge gap.
