Re: New member needs help w/ 48cc 4-stroke (chinese)
If the hose is on the bottom of the bowl it's a drain line. There will be a screw to open it.
It's a china bike, used to sell them. Check the jets as others have said, check the gas tank for flow. It should run. Those little starter motors are very fragile. Take it t an electric motor person. also do not over tighten it. The metal is weak and will break.
Only Bikers know why dogs love to stick their heads out of car windows,
