If you are sure you got some in there... then it sounds as if you have no spark.

make sure you didnt pinch the wire going to the kill switch or anything with the seat and tank R&R

also, make sure you the small wires going to the coil ( to find coil ---> follow the spark plug wire) didnt get knocked loose.

Should be blue in color and maybe even have an audible "pop" to it. A yellow spark is weak and won't ignite the fuel/air mix.

Its blue in color. But with kicking it i cant hear anything. Its not a big Spark but i can see it in the garage with the lights on.

If its getting a spark it should have done something with the starter fluid right?

Yep. You shoulda gotten at least a pop out of the motor. Does your carb have a butterfly or slide?

Not sure. lol. There is one part that goes up and down then another then goes flat. I think that is where the air comes into the carb. should i give it some throatal while i spray it in there mayve? then give it a kick?
