04 Scrambler no start

Hey guys im kind of new to the forum. I have an 04 scrambler 500 H.O that wont start. Has a new fuel pump, has good spark, good battery, just cleaned out the carb, which was very gummed up. It cranks over fine but doesnt even chug or try to start. It was running before i cleaned out the carb, just not extremely well.

Try using a little starting fluid sprayed right into the air box. Crank it over and if it turns over by its self, or sounds like it's firing. If it does then it's still a carb problem

I agree with mechanic, it's an easy check solution that requires no tools. I had the some problem, it would run only on starter fluid, and then I checked the gas tank... very low. I filled her up, squirted that starter fluid, and a few backfires later she was purring like a [loud] Honda!
