Hey guys,

Stupid bikes still not working!

It had a full strip down and rebuild cos one of the gears exploded. After that it was working fine for a day or two. Then the battery went.

Got a new battery (eventually). Put it in and the bike is turning over but not firing. Taken the spark out and it sparks fine. Now i've changed the spark.

Anyone got any suggestions.

I know u need 1) a spark, 2) fuel, and 3) compression.

Any way to test whether the fuel is getting through.

Please help folks! This bike is doing my nutt in! :bangwall:

put a bit of petrol in the cylinder and fire it up, does it start?, have you checked the carb that it's jets are not blocked?

After trying to start it, take out the plug and see if it's wet.
