    Hi all, thanks for having me!

    i have my first build with an ebay 2 stroke. It is on a single speed Fixie.

    I have had some issue with electrical. I lost the magnito and had to replace. My ongoing issue is though with a knocking at high rpm's. The engine always cranks right up. I have nice throttle response. What I get is a clanking and power loss at 3/4 to full throttle. It happens for 3/4 off the time. Occasionally, it will stop misbehaving and the engine is smooth and really produces power. The issue happened before the magnito change but seems to be worse now. Can it be the coil and if so, are there any suggestions on a replacement?


    thanks in advance

    If it sounds better going uphill and worse going downhill then it is jetted too rich.
    Put a truly adjustable carburetor on it.

    Maybe the issue is that you have over revved your engine and now it's become a problem that only money can fix.
    These 2-stroke (66cc) motorized bicycle engines don't like to be revved over 5,000 rpm and you will extended engine life if keeping them below 4,500 rpm.
