Is it getting spark? Did you pull the plug and verify a good blue hot arc? Sounds like a spark issue to me, could be the cdi box, plug wire, who knows...

Also, check the intake hose - the one that goes from the front of the carb to the jug. On my '96, I had an issue similar to yours caused by that hose being loose, allowing the engine to suck WAY too much air. New clamp solved all my problems.

HTH!!
