my bad on clarity. by warming up the motor i mean i brought it in from outside and let it get room temperature so the motor wasn't cold to the touch. yeah apparently you should feel the motor pushing you, i don't feel that so i must be pedal powering it as you say. how do i get it to fire? keep pedaling? yeah i have decided to just leave the choke down or at mid way. motor has never been ran, i have a new spark plug and plug wire but i never tested to see if it was sparking (i should remove the spark plug from the motor, put it in the plug wire, put the spark plug on the head fins of the motor while pushing the bike at a decent speed to test for spark right?) never heard a popping sound just the compression sound.
