    Whats up y'all! Im josh and new here. So i just bought my first motorized bike!! Yay right!!?? Lol so when i can get it started in the mornings it runs great!!! But if i shut it off after a nice 30 minute ride it will not start up for nothing!! Ive noticed once the engine cools down the magneto cover is hot as hell!! Has anyone else had this problem? And what did you do to fix it? Im thinking its the magneto/ CDI i see they sell both on ebay for like $15. Please help lol

    Does it have spark when it won't start? If it does, then it isn't the ignition (except in the extremely rare case of a CDI that loses timing when hot)

    Took it out today. Fired right up. Went for a ride about 40mins and shut it off for like 20 mins 2 times and it fired right up.
