to aimee, you never replied if it fires on a shot of fuel in the plug hole.

are you familiar with the idle passage on the sha?

it's tiny and easy to miss.

if you totally cover the carb inlet with your hand or a rag, choke it hard, any results?

i'd be checking to see if it was pulling any vacuum there cranking.

my thought is primary (crankcase) compression, either the seal is popped out, or there's stories of people over enlarging the intake.

this prevents a tight seal between the crank and intake port.

lastly, how is the exhaust, if it's plugged bad enough, it could do the same.

unhook the pipe to test fire, but don't go for a joy ride if it does start.

sorry for the rude induction to moped army, greetings anyway
