My engine started great before, but now Im trying to start her up and not a chance, I just got it and probally rode like 10 miles sofar, from testing around the block, etc. Now when im trying to start her she only coughs. For example, I will pedal to about 10-15 mph then pop clutch I will hear the compression going and no starting, I see smoke comming out the muffler, but a little bit, I will feell the bike jerking back and forth a little bit, (Seems to me it sparks, but not enough). So I read the forum a littlebit to see if i got any problem mentioned, I dryed the sparkplug, and check for a wet magneto, and check my wiring. Is there any reason why my engine wont start, only coughing on me with some minor smoke out the mufler? I also have a NGK B6HS comming on the way. You guys think its my CDI? I never really had a problem with it? I even rode the bike a little and put my hand on the spark plug and did feel a small "Zap". What do you guys think????
