float bowl was bone dry. could this be related to non-starting issue?
the float needle was extremely tight in the jet, had to pull it with pliers. it was gunged up, but not around the point of the needle. the needle looks to be in pretty fair shape. is the needle supposed to rest on an o ring in the seat? because there wasn't one there.

how could i have had a wet plug with a bone dry float bowl? (i had the choke engaged, and i kicked it many a time)

3 more!
is kerosene an acceptable safe cleaner for carbs?
is the foam air filter to be oiled like most on this bike?
could a leaking petcock be of issue? (in process of fixing it)

thanks for all the help everyone! immensely appreciated
