Question about MBK Skyliner 125 Motorcycles
We have an MBK thunder 125 (same as Yamaha Maxster or XQ125) and having some starting problems at the moment. Normally you need to pull in one of the brakes and hit the starter button for it to fire up, but lately it won't start. the only way to get it running is to take it off the centre stand, then rock the bike back and forward (pretty vigorously!) with the brakes held on and starter pressed until it finally catches. It must be a dodgy connection but I have no idea where! I've stripped the front of the scooter down and checked all the ignition wires and connectors and they seem fine, making me think it must be coming from the starter motor. Can anyone give me any guidance as to where I can find it? Thanks!

TRY A TO BYPASS ALL SYSTEMS WITH A POSITIVE LEAD SHOULD WORK BUT YOU NEED AT LEAST 9VOLTS TO GET THE IGNITER TO EVEN THINK ABOUT LETTING THE COILS HAVE ANY POWER TO EXPLODE THE GAP POINT OF YOU'RE SPARK PLUGS SO GOOD LUCK

lights on motorcycles are not like scooters, they run off the battery. In the old days they had a separate switch, now they turn on immediately after ignition key is on.

in the top of the cylinder head! find the spark plug whire and folow it down to the top of the engine there you should find a cap that pushes over the spark plug
take off the cap and undo the plug (anty clock wise)
put in the new plus gently start it on the threds and dont tighten it up to tight,,(it only needs to be NIPPED UP) not done up with a 10 foot bar? or you could strip the threds out of the head,,,then you will have a big job on your hands to fix it
