2 Stroke Cr85 not starting

Hi all, recently purchased a 2003 cr85r, was told it was running the previous weekend before I purchased it and had a complete top end rebuild with piston and rings, however the bike will not start. Spark plug is brand new and has good spark, topped up the radiator coolant, checked the oil which was fine, took the head off to check condition of the piston and cylinder which was perfect. Have not check the reeds or had a look at the carb but I will get to that later in the week. Any suggestions on what might be the issue?

Clean the carburetor and try again.
Make sure you remove all the jets and blow out all the passages in the carburetor body.
Good Luck
