Does this piece belong on my motorized bike?

    So shortly after my motorized bike stopped working (I'll pedal and let go of the clutch, I hear it start, but it's super shaky/bumpy and the gas won't really do anything) I found this on the ground of the parking lot I was riding in. I'm just trying to go through thing by thing to figure out the main problem.

    That kinda sorta looks like the remains of a sparkplug wire.
    It is not a part of your MB.

    Does your MB get cable TV? Reason I ask, that's a piece of 75 ohm coax cable...RG-6, I believe.

    It's not part of a Grubee motor.

    BINGO. :iagree: for sure a coax cable. Not bike related.

    Funny thread.

    Just glad it wasn't something Lorena Bobbit threw out the car window.

    Def road side trash! My only guess on your problem is to check the seals.

    Might be a choke issue... When starting, have the choke lever all the way up. As soon as it fires, i give it some gas, close choke to about half, ride a block or so, then close the choke fully.

    Dude, you want the choke fully open, lever all the way down, to ride it.
    Choke closed, lever all the way up, is to help start it on really cold mornings.
    Lever half way may help on warm up before you ride it.

    Yeah, this is what I said, All the way up to start, half to warm up, all the way down for riding. I guess I mixed up opened/closed, but I told the guy the correct information.
