Default Re: New 80cc Engine Wont Start???

Guys in the op he said it was getting spark so it may be fuel related, funny it did nothing on starting fluid.
1. Hold down the tickle button for about five seconds( its the little spring loaded cap on the left side of the carb)
2. Lift the choke lever and pedal up to speed ( 5 to 6 mph)
3. Release the clutch and wait for the engine to fire.
4. Once it fires you'll need to lower the choke a bit and stop and keep it running till it warms up.
This has worked well for me on every bike I have built, these little engines are kinda like an old car you have to warm them up before you take off.
Your results may not be the same,Greg
