Fouling a spark plug with unleaded fuel and wet fouling a spark plug with ethanol fuel is more common than you would think. Take out the old plug. Test for spark with a new plug. Then put in the new plug.

Coyote crx 50cc kids bike will not start, its a pull cord start and i have never managed to start it from new. It has fuel, it gets a spark, although it doesnt seem to be a very strong spark. Please s


Hi, Assuming the bike has been run before you owned it, pull off the exhaust pipe and try starting it. If it starts and runs, don't let it it run much more than 10 seconds or so. This will tell you that you have a classical clogged exhaust system. The pipes on little two-stroke engines are very small and easily get filled with wet gooey carbon deposits. White kerosene is affordable and works good for cleaning. Plug on end of pipe and fill from the other end untill it is full and let soak for a period. The best approach is to take apart the pipe to clean really thoroughly. Hope this helps. Denis

Triumph sprint st 1995 wont idle,getting good spark, inside of tank painted brown! is this common? problem started with just riding along and the engine would stop, wait a few minutes start and off you...


Try changing your spark plugs, I have recently had a similar problem with a CBR900, spark plugs seemed to be fine (held against frame outside of engine) but didn't actually work under compression, changed for new and bike now runs like a dream.

When I try to crank my bike the engine turns over, will not start


The bike needs 3 things to run, fuel, compression and spark correctly timed. Try taking one plug out and connect it to the ignition lead. rest the plug against the engine and crank the bike - You should see a fat blue spark. If you have a spark, stick your finger down the plug hole where you removed the plug and crank again, there should be enough compression to blast you finger out. If you have all these, check the fuel filter
