Default Re: New Engine, Bike Wont Start

If you've been pedaling the bike with the spark plug out and not connected and grounded there's a good chance you've cooked the CDI. Whenever you spin the engine over you should have the plug connected to the CDI and grounded to the engine. The high voltage created can/will take a path of least resistance and that can be inside the CDI where it will do damage to the components.

The engine needs three things to run: Fuel, air and ignition. Confirm you have all three.

Also please confine your questions to the thread you already have going. Multiple or duplicate questions and threads will be removed.
