First of all, welcome to the forum You haven't stated what engine you're using but if it's a 2-stroke, make sure you add oil to your gasoline (in the proper ratio) or the engine will fry. You don't want that. Explain your symtoms a bit more (and the engine you're using) and the answers will follow.

Good luck, be patient and have fun with your bike!

Ok I'm young, not too dumb, and new to any engine parts so I'm learning. but I suspect I'm having trouble with either my carburetor or ignition. As i turn the engine with the pedals after engaging the clutch, the engine is turning and sputters, but fails to run the engine which then stops me from moving...

Tonight is my first night with gas in it and trying it, maybe I'm just being impatient and should try it a few more times, but any help would be fantastic. PLEASE. Thanks guys.

I just want to look like this guy.....
