Hey folks, new to this forum. New bike, having some issues getting it up and running but can't wait to hit the roads here in Maine. 150mpg is hard to argue with. Any other bikers out there in Maine? I'm in Naples....Sebago Lake area.

gap your plug to .025 maybe your spark plug cable in not good the stock one are not very good I replaced mine it just unscrews from the cdi i replaced mine with a 7.

How did you check for spark?

pulled the plug, reattached the cap, rested the plug on the head so that I had metal to metal, engaged clutch and rolled bike forward...at dusk..no spark
