    Tw125 not starting

    Hi everyone, I have a spare bike that I'm trying to get running.
    I got it as a non runner and have just started working on it after it sitting for 2 years in the elements.
    I've cleaned the carb, changed the plug, put fresh fuel in it etc and it wont fire up. It gets a good spark and has excellent compression and it is getting fuel.
    Does anyone have any more ideas for me to get it going? I did take off the cam chain cover and it looks like the chain is slack, I'm just hoping it isn't anything major.

    Have you checked to see if the timing (cam chain) is properly set?

    If you have a spark, but the engine doesn't start, than you should have a wet spark plug.
    If not, than you'll have a fuel/carb problem.
    Is it a DE01 or DE05?
