    I have an 80cc motor 2stroke on my bike. After the break in time, I went for my 1st ride. I get about 3!4 of a mile and motor stalls and wont restart. Any suggestions

    Check for these : Gas, Spark, Compression and Air. You should be able to narrow what it is down from that.

    Has has gas and compression. How do I check spark , do I do this by turning peddles to see if there is spark at the plug ? Thanks for the info.

    does the motor spin freely?

    check for spark by pulling the plug, putting it on the wire, and spinning the pedals reasonably quickly

    And touching it to the metal of the engine (unless you want to FEEL the spark. Lol)

    Could have fouled the plug, i mean it is a rich mixture when in the breaking in period.

    someone correct me if im wrong?
