    could be you are not getting fuel, could be a bad reed, could be low compression.

    The motor is brand new but I checked the compression anyway and it was fine so Ill try rebuilding the carb and checking the reed, thanks for your help

    Then yes i would look into being a fuel issue.

    What if you tried to put like a teaspoon of mixed gas directly into the cylinder, it should fire. Then if it shuts down, you could go from there.
