    Sounds like water in the gas. Drain the tank and carb float bowl and put fresh premix in.
    Take the spark plug off and hold it to the head and push the bike and look for spark. Its easier to see at night or inside a building.
    Also try to start the bike and then take the plug out to see that it is wet.

    bike won't start, hope am in the right forum

    reicive a reply from Jaguar last week it was informative ,will drain tank and put fresh gas in.I am reposting becos i think i can be more discripive of my problem 4 you guys. first i have a star fire gen
    11 58cc engine ran fine four 2 weeks after putting it together. 4 got and left it out doors in a heavy
    rain,next morning it did start ,after 3 miles from friends house cut off did not restart after several attempts.after reading different post found magneto bad-replace magneto,cdi spark plug and wire still no start so i tried 2 adjust clutch to no avail. whats happening is when i pedal up to speed it
    and release clutch it goes puk-puk-puk and stop. What did i do wrong and can you help.

    P.S. it does free wheel fine,when i first got it, with the clutch lever out the bike would not move , now i can push it a little and hear piston go up and on.

    SORRY 2 BE PAIN NEW AT THIS TRYING 2 LEARN AND USE THIS FORUM CORRRECTLY:confused:
