I would check the compression of the piston, the rings could be stuck and not have good compression. It should show 120 psi or more. Also can pull off the exhaust and look in the exhaust port to see the rings, piston, and cylinder walls. If the motor has a power valve make sure that is not gummed up or stuck. Mark C

Testimonial: "It was good advise, I still have not fixed the problem, but we are working on a solution as we speak. trying to narrow it down and we are close"
SOURCE: my 1971 ts250 wont idle
i fixed the problem simply by adjustingthe screws on th side of the carb. my dad had messed with it for an hour or so the day before... the next day he left town and after i spent 15 minutes or so dinking aroud it ran and idled fine. (of course if u ask him he got it close for me.) ( ;

SOURCE: wont run...
Any water in the gas? Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Get a fresh set of stock NGK spark plugs. Clean or replace the air filter. You seem to be pretty thorough in what you have done, but since plugs and filter weren't mentioned I had to ask.
Assuming you are getting air, gas and spark, and the timing is correct then it should run. Right? Not necessarily. Can the bike breathe? If pressure cant get out of the tailpipe the bike won't run. Mufflers can sometimes collapse internally. This restricts the flow of burned gasses. causing backpressure. If nothing goes out of the cylinder then nothing goes in.
Try removing the exhaust pipes. Now see if it will run. Get back to me because I would like to know what you find.
