Re: n00b With new china motor stumped
Ignition problems, especially after you've ridden a few miles are the most common of problems. Take the advice offered above and recheck all connections. The kit supplied plug-in connectors are notorious for giving bad electrical connections. Cut them off and solder the splices betwen the blue and black wires.
That spark plug boot that came with your kit is also a common source of trouble. They should go in the trash with the box your engine came in. Replace it with a good automotive quality boot and a good spark plug.
Let us know what you find.
