    I just replaced my 50cc with an 80cc. Breaking it in, it was running fine. So much better than the 50cc. I was riding around the neighborhood, when I took a different turn than usual, only to find another enterance to my neighborhood. So I was turning around (I was on the main road, like, at the enterance of the neighborhood) and a car came down the road. Naturally, I turned at full throttle, but pulled the clutch in. Pop, dead. Now when I go to start it, it sounds like the choke is on, doesn't turn over, there's spark, but the spark plug has fuel all over the bottom of it, and I'm breaking it in. It's new. So doing the whole ride then wait for 10 min. It ran perfect the last 5times, but now it won't start. And stupidly I did not turn the gas off when I let it sit, so it may be flooded??? I let it sit overnight without the spark plug in, but it still won't run.

    oil on spark plug usually means plug was loose or head gasket is loose - check both

    Could that also mean it was flooded??? And if so, would all of this happen???

    no, flooded is on the inside - oil on outside means a leak from somewhere

    I mean, when I take the spark plug out, it has fuel on the bottom of it.

    yes, the motor could be full of fuel - pedal a LOT to get it to start, and be prepared for it to run poorly for several minutes till it drys out inside

    hopefully, you didn't blow a crank seal

    put in a new one - fairly easy job once you get the rotor or bevel gear off
