All engines need the same three to four things to work correctly..
Compression, Fuel, Spark, (timing).... But, usually those bikes, have fuel issues. The fuel tank spigot has a vacuum controlled valve which when the engine is cranked, suction is applied and fuel then can flow. Second,, the needle and float in the carb tend to get gummed up along with the main and idle jet... You need to make sure the carb is maticulously clean, Using carb cleaner, and tag wire,, or a piece of fine wire ( be careful not to enlarge the tiny holes). Keep refering to the 3-4 list fuel, compression, Spark,,,timing.....

You should only use a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate and 20w-50 for warmer climate. Do not use any oil that is Energy Conserving it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oils will help you bike run cooler and shift easier especially in hot weather.
