- I have spark.

What I am thinking after following the trouble shooting chart in the manual is mayber to check the timing. I havent done that on this bike yet so hopefully not too hard. I am also going to pull off the carb and go through it again.

Forget the compression and timing check and do the carb first . Since the ignition is producing sparks it is most likely the carb, which is probably full of junk after sitting around for a couple of years. Especially with gasoline containing ethanol - this is also acting corrosive to the jets. Honda recommends cleaning the carb after a immobilization time of more than 4 weeks in its workshop manual.
