Hi from Northern Ca


moped red

Hello everyone I live in northern California between the coast and the redwoods. I have a 80cc chinese motor that I got from powerking on Ebay. mounted to a Kawasaki KX26 Mens mountain bike. Installation went smooth, have not had any problems at all. Until...................I washed it. It ran for about 1 min. then died. after getting it home I discovered I have no spark Then I checked all my connections but still no spark then I opened my magneto cover and out came water! I placed a light infront of it over night. to dry it Now I get a single bright spark when I pedal it, but thats it. Did I fry my Magneto? If anyone has a Idea that might help please let me know.
Happy Trails

Sorry to hear about the problems. That's one reason I am kind of anal about all the bikes I ride. Ask Augie, he's seen most of my bikes and he could tell you they are all pretty much spotless and very smooth running.
