    Hi

    I have a slight problem starting my bike this year, the bike will start and
    run at an idle but will not run if you give it gas. I noticed gas was coming
    out the drain hole in the left exhaust. I checked the No. 1 cylinder spark
    plug and it is wet, the cylinder is cold which tells me it is not firing. I
    checked the spark and it is good for that cylinder. Any ideas as what to
    check next?

    Thanks

    Without compression it won't light. Have you checked that, yet?

    I had a similar problem with my old 2-cycle, ended up to be the jet in
    the carb. Gas was just flying out into the exhaust instead of a nice
    spray.
