    I have an 06 Yamaha raptor 350. I stated it up last month but it had a really hard time starting. I took about 10mins to start. About 2 weeks ago I tried to start it up again and no luck it didn't even seem like it wanted to start.
    Where should I check or look for?

    I'd check the basics. Air filter, spark plug and compression. I'm not trying to be an ass but is the gas on?

    Thanks for the comments guys. I did check and clean the air filter. I have not check the spark plugs yet. I did try to tighten it and the wires. Yes the gas was on when trying to start it.

    Turn the gas off, drain the float bowl, then turn the gas back on. Check the spark plug. If it's fouled, clean or replace it. Make sure the battery is 100% charged.

    See if you dont have spark first (check the plug), then put alittle gas in the cylinder and see if it starts. If those don't work then check the valve clearances on the.

    Not very often that those motors have issues had a few myself.

    All of these are good suggestions. I'm kind leaning towards something wrong with spark plugs or fuel, but there's really not enough info to tell

    Clean the carb (if you feel comfortable), change the plug, the valves could need adjusting if its a 4-stroke.

    I think its the spark myself so if I get a chance this weekend i'll go pick up a new spark plug and try it out.
