    49cc 4 stroke engine wont start... what do I need to do?

    I have a few questions as well, i'm very new to all this and have very little mechanical experience. 6 months ago the engine died on me all the sudden and would start back up when I would try. Since then, I gave up on the bike itself until this week since I'm wanting to get it fixed again...

    Problem-first start** -engine won’t idle but runs with 1/2 accelerator with clutch engaged - soon as clutch is disengaged while riding the engine sort of stalls an accelerating does nothing - the engine sounds like it is either starving or flooding maybe ? Things to consider ? -Bike came...

    I've done everything and still no start

    I got a 2 stroke, 80cc kit a couple weeks ago and built it in a day or so but for the last 2 weeks I have been trying to start it almost everyday and I get nothing. I pedal, get some speed, ease on the throttle and pop the clutch and there is not even the faintest semblance of engine combustion...

    Engine not starting, despite good spark

    My 80cc engine from China (eBay) has not started since it was assembled a week or two ago. Fuel is getting to the engine, as the spark plug was wet when checked after cranking - for some reason it refuses to burst to life upon releasing the clutch. The engine will turn over after releasing the...

    Placement

    Does it matter which way the head faces? I'd like the plug to face the other way.

    New resistor cap, is it ok

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/221732525665?item=221732525665&viewitem=&vxp=mtr After looking around the site, i saw someone mention that a new boot needs to be a non resistor, and in the title of this boot i just bought it says resistor, do i need to worry?

    Ngk plug performed worse?

    I replaced the stock plug that came with my 49cc 2 stroke china motor with a ngk b5(or 6)hs. i noticed that it doesn't not accelerate as quickly nor does it reach a higher rpm. With the stock plug my motor reached around 2900 but with the ngk it stop at 2400.

    Champion Plugs

    Heard some good reviews of the Champion CJ7Y low profile spark plug. Thinking of getting a Champion EZ Start Spark Plug replacement. Should I be worried that some of these brand name plugs maybe too hot for a 2 stroke ??

    Spark plug wont fire in cylinder

    So my spark plug fires just fine when I hold it against something, but when I try to get it to fire in the cylinder it wont fire no matter what I do to it. Any ideas? The engine is a grubee skyhawk raw racer 66cc and I assembled it last night and now can't get it to start cause of this.

    No spark. CDI?

    While on a cruise on my motorized bike the other day, it just bogged out and stopped running. since then it has not started. I can peddle it, release the clutch and the engine with turn over but will immediately die (i assume because there is no spark). I have since tested the spark by holding...

    How do You break in your ht motor?

    When I was young 13 I built a kings on a Shwinn n did it by instruction manual. Switched to 50:1 when it was 4 tanks down and used some mc pre that claimed 100:1 for most high end Japanese 2 strokes . Got that motor up too 33 on the flat after I ****ed up and drilled 2 holes in my muffler cap...

    Electrical connections are fine, but spark is weak.

    My kit is new, and the engine's never been run. I wasn't getting spark, so I replaced the stock spark plug with a Champion one. I still didn't see a spark, but this time, I just touched the end of the plug while cranking, and it gave me some good consistent shocks. The only thing is that I...

    Replacing Spark Plug Boot and Wire part detail.

    I know I am just missing the post for this, I tried the search but could not find anything exact on info. What I am trying to do is replace the spark plug wire. I found the post on how to remove the old one by digging out the wire from the CDI (for mine which was glued in). So, the point I am...

    First build/Newbie questions.

    I've been putting together this bike and I haven't really had any big issues that I couldn't figure out myself or find the solution to online. Until I had to attach the ignition coil to the spark plug. I've seen videos of people doing it and it just seems to pop right in. Am I doing something...
