Hey! I recently purchased a 1999 Ex500 and the only issue was that the spark plug shout out of the head. With that issue fixed and the whole bike being reassembled, it wont start. You might get a small sputter when your laying on the starter but nothing major.

What do you mean by sputter? Does the engine crank over but not fire? Does it do nothing when the starter button is pressed? Does it begin to start but then die? Need to he more clear and give more info if you can.

Ok you say the spark plug shot out, what work was done to fix it? Did you replace the cylinder head? Did a new plug just thread in OK, have you checked to see if it has spark, fuel, and compression? Is the petcock turned on?
