I have a 2004 pw80 with no fire

I have a 2004 pw80 it started acting up a few weeks ago. i could ride iot about 5 min. Then it would die but i could kick it and it would fire first kick. i have put a new top end in it clean carb. Jetted right new plug new cdi and im stumped. My stator puts out 6 volts is that enough? the thing that is really getting me is when i put my test light to the coil hot wire it wont show fire untill i unplug it and test the wire by its self(orange)then i get a hot test. Im about to pull my hair out. Thanks jon

I own a lambretta uno 50, 2009. was working fine then all of a sudden started acting up, 5 min into ride it dies and will not allow me to restart, if I wait an hour or so it will fire up no problem r

u cantest the vacuum pump or its lines--------but probly somthin electrical--a component cud b worn and heatin up--inspect coil and ignition wires--a repair manual for that model is a must or a similar manual cause the issue is pretty basic

Stalls after 5 min of riding, but a few hours later it runs fine

the battery is failin or not charging rite-on a coil ignition u always need 12 V cause the bike doesnt feed off alternator like a car--test it -may still be good but charge it before cruzing

1990 virago 535 starts and runs great for about 3 or 4 miles

Pull the float bowl caps off the carbs and then spray carb cleaner into the main jet and all other accessible ports on the carbs. Chances are there is a build up of water condensation in the carbs.
