    Hey everybody,I've seen a few threads on here about people installing new motors and them not starting up. I am having the same problem but I tried most the solutions that I have seen and nothing is working.I can get spark when the plug is not in the motor but when I install it,the motor will not fire.If anybody has suggestions,please shoot them my way.Thanks:-||

    If spark is ok then it must be gas. Make sure the float bowl is full. I suggest taking filter off and squirting some into the mouth of the carb. Try starting on a big hill too. This usually gets things going.

    If you have spark-
    Confirm fuel flow to the carb.
    Push the primer button for 3 seconds.
    Pull the choke lever almost all the way up.
    Pedal relatively fast, like a good bicycle cruising speed, and release the clutch.

    Work the throttle a little and see what happens.

    turn fuel petcock on. choke on carb up. push primer button like 3 times.
    get on bike and peddal fast and release clutch and keep peddaling. if started pull clutch in and stop bike,give throttle and let idle ,push choke down.you may have to do all this twice.

    make sure your ground(black) wire is grounded good(engine or frame).

    EITHER (starting fluid)
    Take off the airfilter and give the carb inlet a shot. If it fires then its not electrical.
    CAUTION: ONLY USE A LITTLE STARTING FLUID. A LITTLE FLUID MAKES A BIG FIREscratg
