FE650 2004 Starting problem

Hello,

(I just got here and its my first post, so be gentle please)

I can't get my berg starting. The last time I drove it, it was almost four years ago.
I already changed my spark plug, spark plug boot (I cut a piece off the ignition cable), and checked the spark. It isn't the biggest and fattest spark, but it's a spark.
Then i cleaned the carb by doing ultrasonic cleaning. Carb settings has been "factory reset" (including float height). I truly believe that engine is getting that fuel, but i cannot confirm yet.
After the carb clening starting kick sound has "changed", sounding more "wettier" so i guess the engine is getting fuel.
Next step is to add some lovely startpilot and check if it starts with that. This 650 has always been pain in the ass getting started.

Any advice what to check next?


Thank you!

If it's alway been difficult to start when did you last set the valve clearances?

I believe it's about four years ago... I will check valve clearances, thanks!
I mean, it was always "hard" to get it start, because it took some time to found the right starting sequence, but after mastering it, i did even manage to start it with my left foot while sitting on bike But any of my KTM friends couldn't get it running tho...
