Default Re: Help! Building a Clairmont 80cc, won't start

I just did my first build and had similar problems.

I took the carb apart and my float had gasoline filled up in it. apparently when i got kit it had a small hole they are plastic pieces of sh*t so my engine would start up ride and then flood.

I replaced the float all good now.

i was told to screw the screw on the carb all the way in and then loosen 1 and a half rotations. then try riding and each time unscrew half a rotation until it rides good.

im a huge noob probably not good with advice im just letting you know what just happened to me on getting my first bike started
