QUESTION: Yes on the spark , do u think it the carb.

Since you are getting spark I would staart by checking the carb. Look down the throat of the carb and when you twist the grip do you get a squirt of fuel? Put your hand over the carb tight and turn the bike over for a sec. Are you getting gas on your hand?
