I have an 01 RM 250 that's pretty well in perfect condition,never had any kind of issues with it until about a month ago me and the bike had a pretty hard crash landing and it layed on its side for 10 minutes,ever since then I haven't been able to get it started,put a new plug in it,it's getting good fire,getting plenty of fire.i have checked the reeds and pretty much everything I know you check and can't find anything wrong,it just won't hit a lick,does anybody have any suggestions or ideas of what might of happened here.thanks

Last time carb was cleaned/rebuilt? Getting good fire mean it has spark I assume?

Try the old starter fluid in the plug hole trick. It if comes to life it's the carb. If not, it's something else.

Bikes are basic. Needs: Air, fuel, compression, ignition. One of those 4 are preventing it from starting. Just start eliminating them.

Replenish the gas that all drained out while it layed on its side for 10 minutes.

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
