Ninja Starts, Thumps Twice, and Dies

My 2006 ninja 250 turns over thumps/coughs a couple times, then dies. Full choke. No choke, no thumping.

I have new gas, changed spark plugs, and cleaned the carbs (new jet pilots from rebuilt kit). The float bowls are filling with gas. I have a clear fuel filter and can see the gas fill up. I feel compression from the exhaust when pressing the starter. What could be the issue? My guess is that I am not getting gas for some reason, but it looks like I am. I'm going to go get some starter fluid to spray in the air box, but any other suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Going insane here! Thanks!


I own a 2005 kawi ninja 250
