    Hi all, I recently purchased a grubee starfire 66/80 cc motor kit and have everything mounted and the bike should be ready to ride. unfortunatley i can not seem to get the motor to start. i've adjusted the clutch. checked fuel lines, spark plug is new. watch youtube videos but i still cant seem to get it to fire. any help would be awesome as i need this bike working yesterday:cool2:

    check the wires and make sure theyre connected right. the last kit i bought had the housing colors mixed up. might also be a throttle issue

    start with the basics...pull the plug out and connect it, ground it to the engine and pedal it over, see if there is spark. My first kit had a bad kill switch, I disconnected it and it fired up. Spark is most likely the problem, but if you have spark, then you gotta look at the fuel system.
