84 200s ATC Wont start!!

Alright guys I have a buddy with a 84 200s atc and he just rebuild the top end and carb. Everything is stock. It wont start or anything its got spark, now he brought it over to me to get it timed right, I timed it the pulse generator is lined up right, I just dont get it, also when we try to pop start it, it goes into gear then if you rock it to go into another gear it pops out of gear, so we finally got it into other gears by being real gentle and tried pop starting it in 2 and 3rd gear, but if you turn the wheel even slightly it pops out and acts like its in neutral but its not bc we still have to shift it to get it back to neutral. But Im still baffled on it not starting, how do i check the cdi, or unflood it if its flooded out or is there something else Im not thinking of... Sorry if my whole description is wacked out im just really irritated with this thing, so any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, also I hate meters so if tell me to check any voltages explain what setting and where to stick the prongs.. Thanks Guys.

Check the cylinder compression, then check if it's even getting gas to the cylinder.

Does anyone have any ideas, Im at a loss I adjust the valves too, this thing just does not want to start. Plus it doesnt help with the gears acting weird and slipping out...

What is the spark like?

I had a 200 and it was a pita to bump start, they go into a neutral state just like you said, I wouldnt worry about that.

Is the spark nice and blue? Or just yellow?

try a small spray of ether through the carb and see if it lights if it does then you know its a fuel issue and the carb probably needs cleaned and as for popping out of gear it could be a shift drum issue or bent shift fork
