Looks like the rear swinger has been stretched? You may want to look things over. The angle of the shocks combined with the low clearance of the seat-to-rear tire is a definite cause for concern.

It's been stretched 5 inches. As for the seat it's not mounted just placed. I had to fab up some brackets to have it sit higher up. I'm also looking into getting cb750 shocks there slightly bigger than 340mm which I think would be fine I'm at 320 if I'm not mistaken

Pull the plugs and put a few cc's of Marvel mystery oil in the chambers.  If you can start it without starting fluid, it's best because the ether clears away oil from the cylinder walls.  Prime the motor first, if it hasn't run in a while, to make sure you get the oil flowing.  These bikes are notorious for burning up their heads, so you don't want to contribute to the problem.

This is going to sound dumb if u don't want to reply I get it but when u say prime? Exactly how do I do that? if not I'll look into it tomorrow thanks again

Kick it over with the kickstarter 10 times or so without starting it.  Not hard kicks.  Just enough to turn the motor over.  Helps get fuel flowing, but more importantly it gets the oil flowing.

So I went home tried to kickstart it and nothing I checked for spark and there is spark on the left the right seems kind of weak. I have fuel coming out of the pet cock I just don't know how to check if the fuel is getting into the carb or not.

By the way this bike is kickstart only no more electric start

Other than that bad news I rewired the motorcycle for kick start only. Previous owner told me that it didn't work and he always kickstarted it anyways so why not I thought. I found a diagram on google of a simple wire harness. Always on headlight, no turn signals, tailight, stator, rectifier, and ignition switch
This last picture isn't of my motorcycle I forgot to take pictures, I used this as a reference since this is all a first for me I did however take pictures of the bike with the lights running
