I have had my motor bike for about 3 years now, I bought a kit from Kings Motor Bikes along with 2 of my buddies. I mounted the engine on a Walmart special bike to get me going, and after a few adjustments I was running smoothly... Well, maybe not quite so smoothly, because that bike was so cheap, when I would have the engine running at full throttle it would vibrate so much that I had to pucker up to be able to sit on the seat. It ran pretty good for 2 years, I was an occasional user, but then I busted up my elbow on my mountain bike when I was being stupid, and had to go through surgery and rehab, so it has been over a year since I have had it started last, so I am trying to get it started. I have figured out that my clutch is pretty greasy, and I just need to clean it good before I can get it running again. It is nice to have a forum like this to let me know that I am not alone in my adventures. I am also pretty excited, because today I am picking up a motorcycle so I can fix it up and ride to and from work, just another fun project.

Welcome.

Drain out any old fuel (float chamber too) and shoot a little carb cleaner in the main jet and around the carb.
Mix up a new batch and put a couple drops down the spark plug hole.

Ride off into the sunset.

About half way between Salina and Wichita. I have taken care of the carb and checked the plug and have replaced the fuel. I just need to buy some brake cleaner and give my clutch a good cleaning.
