    Hi, was after some advice. Just got 70cc bike, rode twice, didnt over do it. All of a sudden engine wont start. When i drop the clutch the engine sounds like it wants to kick but doesnt, changed spark plug, no change....any advice??

    did u do 20 kph on a rich mixture? and stopping to cool off every 30 mins for the first 500 ks? run in is super important but if its died that quick ill bet my money on ya carb, try undo the drain screw on it with ya fuel tap on and make sure fuel comes out, if nothing take fuel tank lid off and try again.or check for a spark- take plug out then put in in the boot and hold it to motor head then ride and drop clutch and look for a spark :) good luck

    most likely thing is something came loose - check all mounting bolts & wires

    All is well, thought it might be the clutch, adjusted it, and still no fire. Replaced the magneto after work today and she fired first pop, to ny great relief. Cheers for the advice guys. Luke
