Took of the muffler ot was shooting grey oil. And the spark plug was wet on one side and dry on the other . And its a new spark plug i bought today b6hs ngk. Could it be because the cdi or carb got wet in the the snow ? The gas tank was also on but the engine wasnt . How can i fix this i need my nike up running for work

    Did you re use the carb from previous engine and was it set up lean? Did you alter your fuel mix to break in the new one? A grey color in the oil could be excessive water or wear that would have me thinking an aluminum part!

    Yeah im using the carb from the previous and no i didnt make a new break it mix i was being cheap since i had 2 gallons pre mox from my old engine and i think its water bcuz i was leaving in my buolding lobby nut tenats complained so i was forced ro lock it outside and it got snowed on and rain on so im guessing water got in the carb and tank

    Oh yeah now I see, he said the motor wasn't in the bike so definitely not the mag lol... I ride my bike in the rain but one day while riding I had the engine shut down. Figured it was just nothing since I started it back up pretty easy and got another half a block and then it died and stayed dead.

    Later after testing all the things that need testing I found my cdi failed. Funny enough it wasn't long after I moved it to the underside of my down tube and letting it get splashed with lots of water from the front wheel that it ended up dying.

    If snow melted and froze up in the CDI deep enough that after warming up on a ride it killed it that would explain it. I can't explain why it worked for a while and stopped for no reason then started again and died, but it happened almost exactly like yours did.

    I took of the littlw screw on the side of the bowl and let the fuel out then it rode for one block n died again. And when i try to start it it makes like a backfiring/ bogging sound. Im thinking i sud dump the gas let it dry for a day or so and try a fresh mix ?

    back fire could also be head gasket loose - or a wire not making good connection

    Yes I replaced the CDI and I had it backfire once while trying to restart it when it died that time but forgot about it until just now.

    I agree with crass double check the wiring and make sure it's snug.

    If it's fuel issue then it shouldn't need drying unless you know you have water in your fuel system, but water doesn't create backfires as far as I know.

    The only other time I had a backfire was when my crankshaft arm holding the magnet was damaged, it changed the timing making it pop a few time but no cigar, maybe your magnet is loose in the magneto cover side?

    It's not the clutch so don't waste your time.

    CDI, magneto, or magnet is not aligned.

    Since you manage to get backfires the spark must be there a bit. Look at the magnet and try turning it on the shaft, if it moves independently at all then your key might of shorn.

    when checking the mag, try to lift up a bit on soldered connections - sometimes they can be loose, but still touching enough to fool your meter

    you really should start a new thread for a new problem - do so and then tell why you think it is too hot
