    78 Suzuki RM 400 won't start

    I just bought a 78 RM 400 and I can get it to kick about once every 50 tries. This bike has been sitting a while and my cousin put straight gas in it. I emptied the tank, cleaned the carb out. I had it running once since I've owned it to I know it runs and it has good compression. Runs well once it is started, but starting it is a challenge. Any ideas? Is it possible to have weak spark that comes and goes? Also, I'm somewhat new to the different types of bikes, but it's an RM 400, but why does it say "1000 cc" on the side of the engine? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks
