Default Re: my first build is broke down

I'm having a hard time understanding what its doing to you.

It is possible you need to adjust your may have a clutch thats slipping and you just are not turning the motor over enough to get it started.

You could also have a vacuum leak, you say it tries to start so we know you have spark.

I've seen these stock plugs do funny things so I was hoping we could just eliminate that possible real quick.

Be sure to check the manifold and carb that it's nice tight that we do not have any vacuum leaks...Be not over tighten and snap a stud.

It's also possible that you are not getting enough fuel...which you would need to pull the carb off and be sure there is no junk in there causing a fuel delivery problem.

Here's what you do to adjust the clutch...

A) Disengage clutch by pulling handle bar clutch lever inward and lock into catch lock.

B) Remove right side engine clutch cover and remove small locking screw on center *Clutch Adjust Nut.

C) Pull clutch arm on left rear engine inward. Back off *Clutch Adjust Nut turn counterclockwise.

D) Release clutch lever and check for slight clutch arm 1/16 free-play on opposite side of engine. Readjust *Clutch Adjust Nut as required to get required 1/6 clutch arm free play.

E) Tighten *Clutch Adjust Nut on clutch plate clockwise until just snug.

F) Then re-install small locking screw in outer edge of *Clutch Adjust Nut.

G) Good idea to place a small gob of grease at gear mesh area. Use grease sparingly! Then replace cover.

Also, when thing you could do before any of the above is disconnect your kill switch. If it's the stock kill switch good possibility it's going bad and shorting out on you.
