I have an old moped. I am unsure of the make and model. It's a simple 2 stroke with a kick start and electric start. My kick start arm snapped off and i have tried to use the electric start but it won't fire up. I know the kick start still works, but with the arm off I can't get it to crank. There is a new battery in it and the thing still won't kick start. Any Ideas??

    Check the symptoms of the electric start * if you hear the fine motor sound with out the engine drive sound then the problem is with the self motor * It the motor doesn't respond then check the wiring including the switch

What do you mean
"wont kick start with battery" ?

Is the starter turning the motor ?
If not - the starter could be stuck..
WHILE tring to start it with starter - give the actual starter a smack with a wrench..

Rate well ;o)

Can an 87 fxrs be kick started?


I've never heard such a thing...

But you have to have a kick starter first and I don't recall 87's having one. Correct me if I'm wrong or if the trans has been changed out then yes you could have one. But I've never heard of Harley's starting on the second compression stroke. Plus the modern after market ignition systems used without kick start transmissions are the same ones used with custom scoots that have a modern trans with the old look of the kick starter... Although with these high compression engines, compression releases are common place because neither the starter or kick starter could crank one without...

I want to check if a makita rbc 230 brush wood cutter runs on petrol (neat) or two stroke mixture


I think the model your speaking of is the RBC30. It is a 2 stroke mixture. The 430 models are 4 stroke and do not require mixing oil and fuel. They are made by Ryobi for Makita.

Here is the RBC 30

RBC30SESA
  • Powerful 30cc 2-Stroke Petrol Engine
  • Easy-Start Carburettor
  • Expand-It™ Attachments Compatible
  • 18"/46cm Cutting Path Width
  • 2 Year Domestic Warranty
Info on the 430

RYRBC430SES
  • New 4 Stroke Design
  • Light in Weight 7.3kg
  • Safe Anti-kick Feature
  • Reduced Noise Levels, Lower Emissions
  • 2 Year Warranty
This is pretty much the entire line up of their brush cutters:

There is not a 230 model.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My scooter wont start can u help


It is definitely frustrating when you can't get your scooter or moped started. The first thing you'll need to do is to narrow down the problem. In order for your gas scooter to start, it really only needs 3 things:

1.
Your scooter needs to spark at the correct time.
2.
Your engine needs the proper fuel/air mixture and exhaust flow.
3.
You need sufficient engine compression.

Top 9 Reasons Why Your Scooter Won't Start:

1.
Try depressing the brake handle when starting.
2. The battery has not been charged.
3. The battery is hooked up wrong. This is often the reason for blown fuses.
4. There isn't enough gas or two-stroke oil in the scooter.
5. There is a gas flow problem, especially on the Euro Scooter or Yamaha models.
6. The spark plug wire is not connected.
7. A low battery or bad relay can cause the scooter to only start by using the kick starter.
8. There is no spark to the spark plug. The coil is bad and needs to be replaced.
9. Turn the key to the "on" position.

Kick start has no compression but runs fine once i get it going


Does it feel like yhe kick is even engaging and turning the crankshaft? Are you full stroking/kicking it over or short stroking it? when cold, are you using the choke. I suggest taking a compression test when it feels as if it hs no compression It could be undersized piston, rings, or a simple. good luck

Unsure about gas setup


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would appear that there are 2 questions/users on this post. Still, on your bike, normally, the tank hold plain gas, not premixed. The 2-stroke oil (2T) has its own reservoir attached to the right side, on the frame. The filler would be exposed and relatively easy to access and fill up.

On the Gearbox oil for 2-stroke engines with a wet clutch, SAE 10W40 is the standard.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
