If nothing of the above helps, try checking the compression in the cylinder. (1) You might need to replace the piston rings with new ones if you don't know for sure the total mileage of the bike. (2) However the replacement will not be necessary if the rings just got charred in the grooves due to excess of oil or wrong oil used. In this case just soak the piston in gas or in a special solvent to remove char. Avoid using car oil when preparing the fuel. It produces a lot of buildup all over the combustion chamber and the exhaust manifold. Stick to 2-stroke oils.

CORRECT OCTANE NUMBER: if the compression ratio (see manual) is below 8 you can use 87 gas. If it's 9 thru 11 use 92 gas.
