    never owned a bike but found one at a yard sale for $5.
    saw someone riding a bicycle with a motor on it.
    thought it was the coolest thing ever.
    decided that's what i want to do.

    knew nothing about bike or motors.

    got the kit 2 days ago.

    my landlord(contractor with many tools) was very helpful during the process.

    engine worked for an hour. ****ing AMAZING! I hooked up the killswitch...it literally killed it.
    it starts but dies in 5 seconds.

    Welcome to MBc, rylerider. Now that you have introduced yourself, be sure to read all you can, including the 'Stickies'. They contain a lot of information. For example, Sticky #1 under ‘Introduce Yourself’ has 20 or so links to “How To…” threads, and important pages for you to follow. Sticky # 3 has info on forums, how you are expected to conduct yourself, and where you might find and use various features. But, read all of them, and be sure to use the search feature. If you are still stumped, post your question in the proper Forum. I'm sure you will get some helpful advice from one of our wiring gurus. Good Luck.
