Hi Shane and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, if both fuel and spark are present, then possibly an engine issue. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • carefully remove the spark plug;
  • • check the burn color of the ceramic to the tip;
  • • cautiously re-perform a spark test;
  • • crank and note if fuel enters the combustion chamber;
  • • remove the air box and check if there is suction and if fuel could be drawn out through the mouth;
  • • have a compression test or better yet, a leak down test;
