Take out the spark plug and squirt some gas into the combustion chamber,replace the plug,and see if it will fire.If it fires,runs for a bit then dies you have a fuel delivery problem.If you get nothing then I would be looking at the ignition system for a bad connection,green death,(thats the corrosion along copper),low battery.etc There are three things needed to get ignition,fire,fuel,and air.One of these is not there or low.Did you clean out the new carb before you put it on? Good luck

you better check for valve clearance.....and to be honest you're intake valve maybe to tight and kept open.....you will reajust it but this will last a ride or two...because maybe the mobdelium coating is done on the intake valve and it is getting tight all the time and kept open....put two new oem valve from honda and you will be back on the track....sometimes i also never rectify any angle on the seat of the valve, just put new one and go.....honda as getting better since 2007....more good quality of coating on the valve....if you bought new valve for an older model they will come with that upgraded and last longer.

if your getting no fuel at all to the carb then its the petcock valve it works off of vacume so take fuel line off and spin it over if fuel runs out then its fine that means your needle valve in carb maybe stuck. and in my case a stick pulled the vacume line off the intake that controls the petcock valve.

Those bikes can be a pain to start after they've sat awhile. What always worked for me was twist the throttle a bunch. I mean make sure its flooded. Then lay the bike over on its left side until the gas runs out the overflow. Stand it up and lay it down until it stops running out. Then I squeeze the decompression lever and cycle the motor. Now just barely pull on the decompression lever to open the valve just barely. Get it to top dead center and give her a good kick with a twist of the throttle. Becareful it could kick back.
This technique works for when the bike stalls when its hot. Most important part is if you think its flooded lay it over and start the process over. Remember your XR has two carbs and will flood QUICK. After some practice you'll be able to hear it in the exhaust pipe if she's flooded or if she trying to come around. Trust me. I have four of these bikes. Two 83's, one 84 and my beloved 85.
