    Not sure what's going on...My engine isn't starting (80cc HT)...I pedal for a bit and release the clutch and nothing happens. Can anyone give me any possible reasons why it won't start?

    You'll need to give us a bit more info. You release the clutch and nothing happens. What exactly does that mean?

    For instance, does it mean that the engine turns over but doesn't fire? Or does it mean that the engine doesn't turn over at all?

    Give us the best description that you can of exactly what the bike is doing or not doing.
    You can be sure that someone will have the answer as long as they understand the problem.

    Problem solved. Throttle coupling wasn't fit properly, carb was upside down, and clutch cable wasn't adjusted correctly.

    Just curious, how did the carb get upside down and how was it hooked up to the gas and linkage that way? If it was your good! lolol
