Re: Need help getting it started
well i feel dumb. i added more fuel (i only added like a cup to the bike cause i was having leaking issues that i fixed when i get that better hose~just forgot to add more fuel), warmed the motor a bit, took it out front and ran it down my driveway, motor sounded like it was starting up when i slowly popped the clutch out.
only thing, as soon as i stop pedaling, the motor stops and i can't get it to sit idle. i tried giving it gas (twisting the throttle) while pedaling and i got no acceleration. i pedaled 1/2 way down a steep hill and as soon as i turned around to peddle up the hill, the motor died on me. and yes, i have choke on (all the way up)
doing some research, i should:
pull handlebar clutch in
slowly let handlebar clutch out until motor starts turning over
keep pedaling and turn choke down half way (still holding that position on the handlebar clutch)
let the handlebar clutch all the way out and the motor should start
turn the choke all the way down (after a minute or two of ridding cause its cold?)
also, i checked the spark plug, it is shiny wet
