I’ve got a 450r kicker and can’t seem to get any life out of it, it’s get spark, good compression, and plenty of fuel. Every 20 or so kicks it acts like I wants to fire but then nothing happens. I’ve installed new spark plug, coil pack, and cleaned the carb but still nothing. If you know what it might be please comment, thanks.

When you say 'good compression' is that from a compression tester readout? 'By feel' can be very misleading.
What does the spark plug look like after you have kicked the engine over 5-7 times? oily?
What are the valve clearance settings?
Was the engine modified with racing type components? What parts? Are you supposed to use high octane rated racing fuel?
