I'm lost...ultimate 127 won't kick

Probably a noob question, but I need help. Rode my bike yesterday ultima 127. Ran great, shut it off, adjusted some controls & now the bike won't start. It's just crankin but won't catch or burp. New spark plugs, battery is good. What do y'all suggest? Wanna do everything I can before taking to my buddy.
Thanks y'all

The hand controls on the handle bars. They had to be pushed forward a tad. Brake reservoir was sitting on an angle, unable to add fluid or bleed brake how it was.

Make sure compression releases pushed in, choke it all the way, blurp the gas several times to prime, and try again. My 127 is always a hard starter.

Check your timing if you have continued hard start problems

The first thing you want to do is check your spark, maybe you pulled something loose...Stick a screw driver in one of your....plug wires and see if it will draw spark to the engine...has to be the problem....next would be gas..

Sitting at work dwelling on this bike and I just had an idea, shine some light here. I moved the hand controls forward. My start button doesn't work on the hand controls anymore, everytime I tried starting the bike it was directly at the starter, with the manual push button. Is it possible for my bike to still crank by pushing that if the Run/Off switch went bad? Maybe those went bad??

I checked yesterday, and everything still looked connected. I will double check today. My kill switch probably went bad, which allows me to crank at starter, but won't actually let the bike start.

The power for the starter button and the run switch comes from a common wire, since you lost both I would look there.

If you have a wiring diagram or know your harness, you can tie the wires together at the main fuse area or harness junction. You have an ignition kill 'in" and an ignition kill "out" wire that goes to your handlebar switch....both different colors, the switch ties them together to allow for starting. Find them in the main harness around the battery box/fuse box and tie them together for key switch start only. This might save you time if you broke the wire in the bars or switch and do not want to re-fish the bars.

For this to work, you need to have a three-position key switch OFF/ON/START (Most key bikes have this) and it must spring back to ON position as START is only to engage the starter.

Hope that helps.
