After cleaning my carb and adding a quick shot 2 accelerator bowl my quad will not start.

Its spraying fuel intontge carb so the pump is working.

Battery is changed

All it is doing is 1 maybe 2 cranks and stops then same thing stops. Started fine week ago.

Any ideas?

maybe a dead or weak battery? maybe a stuck or bad decomp lever? it is kinda strange it started this issue after just being in the carb. maybe try charging or jumping the atv battery.

After 5 hours of messing with it. i unplugged all connections and blew them out with air hose and she fired up. 

The only thing I noticed was the garage was quiet and when the key was on there was a slight hum on the CDI box not sure if that normal or if its going to go soon?

If it is that should I upgrade to a aftermarket one?

if it is the cdi going bad i would get another stock one. the only aftermarket ones i would use are the dyna and the vortex and neither are needed until you have tons of engine mods and need to have a custom tune to make huge power. they are both $300 to $500. all the other aftermarket ones do not retard timing on start up and can and will shear woodruff keys and destroy one way bearings.

Don't meant to hijack this guys post but i always see that the cheaper cdi's don't "retard the timing on startup" .. what do you actually mean by this and why is necessary? just curious...

if the timing stays advanced on start up and the machine does not start up right away it will have a violent kick back on the one way bearing when you let off the starter. if the timing is retarded on start up it is like the decompression mechanism on the exhaust cam allowing easier turn over and start up. this saves batteries, starters, oneway bearings and flywheel keyways.
