Check the carb for old petrol, drain off by unscrewing the brass bolt at the bottom of the carb, and allow new petrol to flow through on the starter. Petrol 'goes off' in time!

Backfiring and trouble starting

If you change the exhaust pipes, you have to sync the carbs (if you cant sync them, you have to change the carb jets), usually it is backfiring because the carbs are not in balance.

Battery isnt charging.

any battery that has been completely flat can often get whats called sulphated plates if this happens the battery may never recharge and if it did take some charge it wont be much good after, the battery has had it realy the only this you could try is a very slow long charge but even this may not work,,,as a last dich try putting an asprin into each sell,,, yes thats right an asprin it dose work some times but for the life of me i dont know why, it just dose! as for whats the best battery,,,its all down to price at the end of the day, if its a cheapy type battery it wont last very long but il give you a good tip,,,,buy your self a 12 volt solar charger of say 2.5 watts a 1.5watt will just about do for a small battery,, when your going to lay the bike up the next time hook up the solar charger to the battery and forget it,,, the solar charger only needs daylight to work but sun light is better, and it will keep the battery toped up all winter i use them on my bikes (BMW 750cc 35amhr battery fitted) put on at the begining of winter took off in spring and they start first time every time,,,free power,,good huh!

Start by checking the battery. Turning on yer bike and letting it idle is gonna drain the battery over time. Check the charge with a voltmeter. Should be at 12.5 Amps at least. If it is, I'd check the battery cables next for good tight clean connections ( if u dont have one - get a charger)
If that dont do it - get back with me - I got more
