Check your ht lead make sure good connection.check magneto.if magneto looks soiled clean the outer surface.you will see a terminal top left side.remove this(2 retainer screws) and give it a good clean(clean cloth soaked in petrol)use a wire brush on magneto and finnish off with soaked cloth.replace everthing and start it up.theres only a number of things that can go wrong to fire.
plug....dirty,set wrong,oiled up or faulty.ht lead....become loose or worn.magneto....residue,rust,dirt due to being left outside for long periods.

I have a70cc quad bike that will not start its not the battery its not the petrol or the spark plug tries 2 turn over and fails 2 start do you think it could b the startin motor or could it b somethink...


if it turns over it is not the starter motor. Try dumping a little bit of fuel into the carb, check the air filter, if you can also try to tow it behind something and put it in gear. It also may be flooded. let it stand for a bit and retry. double check all electrical and vacuum hoses.

My quad had a problem starting, it takes about 15 minutes to fire up. Could you please help me with my problem?. thanks


It's either spark or fuel. For spark, take the plug out, rest the plug on top of the piston still connected to the wire, and crank it. You should be able to see a spark. If you do, put one teaspoon of gasoline in the spark plug hole, replace the spark plug, and start it. If it starts easily, you have some carburetor issues and need to have that looked at. For the meantime, priming the motor with a little gas to get it started might not be a bad way to go. You can squirt the gas in the carburetor throat or put it through the spark plug hole. (Unscrewing and screwing the spark plug often isn't good for the head, however.) Good luck.

Quad fatigue on my road bike what could cause this? I have a new bike and I feel like saddle position is off as far (forward and Back) not the height


Quad fatigue could indicate one of several things:
  • Saddle is too far forward: frequently this strategy is used by triathletes to put the burden of the bike ride on the quads to avoid fatiguing the hamstrings before the running component. This is why Tri bikes have such steep seat tube angles and forward saddle positions
  • Saddle is too low: This causes over-extension of the quads (overbending of the knee) so your initial muscular contraction is higher in tension but lower in value.
Try moving the saddle to a more aft position. This will place more work on your hamstrings and less on the quads, and may create a more balanced workload for the two groups.

Also, if you do not already have them, clipless pedals (I ride Speedplays) will reduce the amount of work done by the quads since you will be able to use more muscle groups during the entire pedalstroke instead of simply mashing the quads on the downstroke.

You might consider seeing a professional bike fitter if you have a new bike and it is giving you problems. You should be able to get a very good bike fitter for about $100. Anyone charging more than that is just trying to use a high price to make their fitting look "better."
