Hi, Hendo a garage is a shelter for motor vehicles that being said take your bike to a professional, any Cagiva technician worth his salt knows that a hole in the piston on your make and model motorcycle is caused by extreme heat usually due to the wrong spark plug heat range, monster intake leak or carburetor jetting to lean.

SOURCE: cagiva river starter problem

You can try running a positive wire directly from the battery to the post on the starter to see if it's a starter problem or a handlebar or wiring loom issue. If the stater spins when you hot rod it then i would go for thw wiring. but start at the problem ( being the starter and work your way back. You can use a test light to see if you're getting power at the starter when you hit the switch. If you aren't getting power at the starter I would check you clutch safety swith ( attatched to the clutch lever perch ) and then go to the kickstand switch. The kickstand will turn it off, so look down where it mounts to find it.If either one of those are bad or unplugged, the bike should'nt start for safety reasons set up at the factory.

It has the same engine with Mitto but that engine is more fragile than that of the CBR's.
Don't buy it if you ask me.

I have a cagiva mito 125 it wont start I've checked the carb and changed the head gasket and it still wont run I've tryed easy start but it just back fired now I dont know what to do.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

Nissan navara 2006 blown hole no1 piston 16000kms

I'm sorry to hear that!
When you get it fixed get your injectors serviced as holes in pistons are usually caused by pre-ignition ( pinking ) or running too lean.
If the injectors were left wet ( can happen if a blown head gasket was the cause of the first rebuild ie water in the bore ) , or dirty , they may not be delivering enough fuel causing the top of the piston to get too hot and melting a hole in it.
Option 2 , the timing was set wrong, ( too far advanced ) causing pre-ignition and ending in the same way.
Good luck with the rebuild.
