    I've got a motorized bike that just won't give any gas. The engine starts but sounds like when you use it for the first time and need to go downhill to start it. But nothing happens with mine, like if the gas isn't getting to the engine. And when I try to give gas it doesn't do anything. I've checked everything the carb is fine the throttle works and fuel is getting in the carb. I have sparks as well.

    Just can't figure it out
    Any ideas?

    A engine needs 3 things to run
    Spark, fuel, and something else (;))

    How much oil are you using in your fuel???
    Have you checked your spark plug???
    Trying to start from the beginning since you didn't give a very good description

    There could be a million things gone wrong but narrowing everything down

    Ya agree.. If your getting the 3 main things, and its still not starting then something as simple as hooking up the wires wrong, or not having your carb adjusted can causes hours of frustration. so check the wires, try choke on , choke off, tinker with the idle screw, I normally put that screw all the way in until I get it started when it comes to new engines.
