Hey, so I have a 1979 gtmx80 it has a new spark plug oil change, carby cleaned etc and it just won't start. I can push start it but then it dies pretty quickly. I tried to rev when it started but it doesn't seem to rev at all. Feels like maybe fuel line issue?? I'm a newbie to bikes. Does anyone know how to fix it?? Thanks

Crank seals? Take left side cover off and see if crankshaft moves up and down by grabbing hold of flywheel, see if you can look thru flywheel at crank seal area for signs of residue, usually if right side leaks it will smoke excessively, if left side leaking it will not run, also compression should be at least 90
