starter turns, battery is charged, kill switch is off, kickstand is up, plenty of fresh fuel, engine won't fire up. chugga chugga chugga... but nothing else. it's been a progressive problem that started a week ago.

i thought the engine was flooded the first time because after waiting overnight, it started up. it seems if i don't get it to start on the first attempt, then it doesn't start on successive attempts.

Now it doesn't start at all no matter how long i wait. I haven't had the valves adjusted, so i'm going to do that this weekend, and i'm going to check the sparkplugs tonight. i'm also going to check the solonoid thing that i read about as well.

Is there something else i should check or could be the problem?
