    It needs three things to run: Fuel, air and ignition (spark).

    Is fuel flowing to the carburetor?

    Is the choke open?

    Is the spark plug firing?

    In you answer no to any of these start looking for reasons why.

    Check your wiring carefully. Make sure the white wire isn't touching any metal.
    Check your connections. Are you using the kit supplied push-on connectors? We always suggest soldering the splices and protecting with heat shrink tubing. Try disconnecting the kill switch from the circuit. They have been reported to cause problems by many.

    Check these and let us know what you find.

    Tom covered about everything, try removing the plug boot and cutting off about 1/2 of the cable if possible and reattach the boot. Sometimes the wire in the plug wire will break at that point. You can also replace the wire with a 7mm auto type, it should screw out of the cdi with a little effort.

    Hi Ron, after trying the cdi and magneto specs of your link. I see that both my cdi and magneto needs to be replaced.. Are there any any good replacement places for those parts? I bought my last defective parts from Lynn at custommotoredbicycles.com: anyone close to the jacksonville area? Thanks again for you guys help>>> Hopefully I'll b riding soon

    Buying one from any vendors or off of Ebay is really a crap shot. That is unless you want to spend $50.00 and up. All these parts that you see from vendors and on Ebay are the same Chinese junk and they don't have any control as how they are made. Now after that said, I've only run into 1 defective magneto, and it showed it's ugly head 3 days after instillation. Try to buy from someone that will stand behind the parts longer then getting it to the door. My experience, these along with others won't...BGF and luckyearlybird. Quality stock parts... well that's a JOKE. If you plan on riding for some time, may I suggest buying 2 of each, that way you have spares. I find that if I have a spare, my original lasts :>) and spares gather dust in my garage :>( , but you can sell either one here without any problem.
