The filters are clean or replaced and I am getting fuel out of the injector nozzle in the throttle body. And I have plenty of spark at the plug but it never even goes POP!. Nothing. For a pop you need gas air compression and spark.

I'm afraid its a lack of compression. I'm still hoping its a stuck valve.

Maybe this new plug went bad too???
Lots of nasties left in there to change things.
Different environment in the combustion chamber under compression and spark will be different than outside looking at it spark.

Maybe borrow a compression tester from Auto Zone and see if your within spec?

Vico,
Just do a leak down test and be done with the guessing.

Vico1, worst case what would it need? Prolly just rings and a valve job right? I would think if you got the bike off fast enough no bearings would have really had a chance to ruin themselves. I'm not familiar with flooding a motor though so..

[QUOTE=Vico1;22162998]Here's one you've seen before: circa 1969 clay pit in Mobile
125cc Sachs Im about 22.



You don't look much different now than when you were 22, other than you usually buckle the strap on your helmet today... Love the old pics, thanks. Brings back mixed memories of my less than two years of dirt bike experience in the early 70's. Had a '71 yellow-gold Yam 175 "enduro"-so I entered a enduro race. What a cluster f#*k! I had no idea what I was doing, no experience with rules, roll chart, timed check points, etc..got to 1st check point too early??? Got lost then I really got lost, found a guy on Maico...or was a CZ? Followed him for a minute or two, lost again, got a river on my left, steep mud river bank on right, came to fallen tree, while trying get over tree bike slid down wet tree into river, completely under while I was trying to hold onto it with throttle nearly wide open...I wanted to cry but a nice guy helped me get it out of river and pushed along mud bank til could get back up to woods, I pushed til came to dirt-mud road, exhausted I couldn't push any further, layed it down in woods, walked out, got a friend and my step-dad to go back in and get bike. That was my first and last enduro experience. Maybe I'll try another one now that I'm 58, older, wiser....weaker, fatter, NOT!!!

Big day in the Perz casa !

My 9 yo son James overcame his fear of his Jr50. He'd ridden with training wheels a bit in the past and had a few small get offs that shook his confidence bad. The bike sat for a year or so and he would get physically upset at the thought of riding. Out of the blue yesterday he asked if he could try and kick start it. When it fired off from his own effort he was excited (I've always started it for him). I then asked him if he wanted to try again without training wheels and he immediately said no and started to cry. So i did what any father should do.. Told him to put his gear on

Out in the yard and on the bike he is pleading with me to let him go inside. I said he could after he at least walked the bike around in gear. It took all of .005s for him to pick his feet up and ride! He was so excited i could here him screaming "I did it Dad!" inside his helmet. He road for about an hour. Only a few small drops that didn't faze him at all. He even started gassing it out of the corners to spin up the rear!

Needless to say he is very busy doing chores at the moment so he can ride this morning

Proud Papa here
