Yes fuel tap is on, bike smells of fuel after a bit of cranking, so even though there is a spark from the plugs when removed this is breaking down under compression ?
The ignition switch is very sticky, could this cause starting problems ?
Sorry for all the mider, just that I'm off work this week and was hoping to get the old girl on the road.
Please keep the suggestions coming as it may just be something daft that I've overlooked.

Yes choke cable is all hooked up, the carbs were pretty clean when I pulled them, I've put new plugs in and even cut a little off each ht lead to rule out poor connection and as I said I'm seeing a spark on each lead, but not exactly a big fat juicy spark. Battery seems good and cranks the engine ok, just at a loss really.

Hi guys,

After doing some work on my Fazer, (changing a leaky sump and replacing the exup valve) I just can't get the bike to start, I have a spark from all the ht leads and I have cleaned the carbs, the fuel pump is good, the engine spins over ok and I get the odd cough, but it just doesn't want to go, anything I am missing ?

Thanks Mick.
