Not so many reasons she won't start. 4-Strokes are Simple!
Here they are:
Fuel Tank-> Fuel Line-> Fuel Filter-> Carb-> Intake (Valve)-> Piston-> Exhaust (Valve)-> Muffler
Carb (Old Style):
Fuel Bowl-> Float-> Needle Seat-> Fuel Ports (Venturi)
Air Filter-> Carb Air Intake-> Butterflies (2)
(Clean 'em ALL!)
Rotor (Magnets)-> Magneto (Ignition Coil)-> Spark Plug Wire-> Spark Plug-> Cylinder Head (Spark Plug Ground)
Kill Switches (Seat, Clutch, etc.)-> Spark Plug/Ignition Coil-> Ground
Key Ignition-> Battery->Starter/Generator
If one of those fail.......= Non-Starting 4-Stroke!
You are either getting too much, or too little. Too much = Carb.
Too little = Carb. Therefore, tear down the Carb (COMPLETELY-Careful!) and clean it up.
Grounding out the System (Kill Switches)
Battery-> Ignition-> Starter.
Magneto->Plug Wire->Plug (Check 'em all!)
