Default Re: My first cruiser build.

Okay, I am having some trouble with my bike. I have it all hooked up, and when I go to try and start it, it just won't start. I went throught the directions 3 times to make sure I did everything that they stated and still no luck. When I let go of the clutch to engage the chain to start it, the motor just won't start like I have no spark. It gets really hard to pedal when I let go of the clutch. The first time I tried, it sounded like it was going to start, but nothing. The fuel petcock is on, I depressed the plunger button twice, pedaled then let out. I connected the two motor wires to the appropriate colored wires on the CDI, the kill switch yellow wire to the engine white and the black kill switch wire to frame ground. Now, for the frame ground, should I drill a hole and screw into that or is it okay to use the mounting bolt to the motor for ground. I am a tad bit frustrated and just want to make sure I am not missing something. Please help me!
