I would. Have you tried opening the throttle while cranking it? My servo used to get stuck and I had to crack it just a bit to get it to fire.

Disconnect the cables while the bike is off. It is open when bike powers off.. If the bike fires normal you need to troubleshoot the cable binding and possibly replace the cables or take them off all together ..:hello:

If bike does the same thing you have a different problem . Just come back and report your findings . We will help ya figure it out if that s not your issue
