Hey guys, I just installed one of these wicked thing, BUT the engine sproket doesnt turn -.-'.

I am NOT really mechanically inclined. The chain isnt jammed. The instruction said to peddle first before releasing the clutch, but it just feels like im peddling with breaks on.

Help guys? :D

i saw that thread of yours. Mine looks exactly the same. Still doesnt roll though. I tried looking inside of the clutch area thing. I have no idea what the purpose of the clutch is. It doesnt look like it touhes anything really. Do you happen to have pictures of how the clutch area in the engine is suppose to look like? Ill take some pictures right now and post them

it doesn't have to "look" the same...the pictures show how close the final adjustment will be. use the adjuster on the engine to fine-tune.

Also ive been curious about this.

The white wire is to be grounded right(i read it somewhere here), so I guess i... tape it to a bolt or the frame or something? Black with black, blue with blue AND one black wire from the kill switch. But is that how I do it? in the picture i just put the black wire into one of the blue and i plan to just stick the other blue one in there as well.

and the last black wire im guessing i ground also right?

i think you'd better read that one about the wiring more closely.

Well, The black goes with black, the blue goes with blue.

Then theres 2 black wire from the kill switch. One goes to the blue one as well, and the other goes no where, the white goes no where.

Thats what I got from reading it 20 times over. I just dont KNOW how to wire things. So I take guess shots at it. If you can be so kind as to show me. Id really appreciate it.

isn't that what i just did? experience or no, guessing won't cut it...it looks like you're almost right, but you have to run the other wire from the kill-switch to ground (frame or engine)

now, here's some rare "friendly" advice from me...new people show up all excited and usually in a hurry...in the process, they start glomming up the forums, and the bike, they get frustrated and sometimes can forget their manners (you haven't done that yet, but you're missing answers & breaking forum policy because you're in a hurry), so be cool...

Thanks. But is that how you connect one of the kill switch wires to the blue ones? Just thread it through and then connect the other blue one on top?

also is that how the clutch is suppose to look like? i dont see where anything touches when i grasp the clutch.
