Check if you have spark....

also check carb adjustment screws... there should be one or two. Try adjusting them. You may need to remove the plastic EPA locknuts on them

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

My bike was working n then it starting back firing and tripping out or flat spotting. i changed the CID box along with tank coil and spark plug.it worked for like 2days then the same problem accured . i...


Hi there,

Looks like you're ruled out the rest except for one thing. The magneto coil. It must be faulty to have caused excessive voltage running through the sparks. The back firing can be caused by poor fuel-air mixture. Set it to 2.5 turns out from full close. and lean out the mixture as necessary. Check for oil as well since low level oil can cause heat problems thus tripping the engine.

Hope this helps,
levibit

ps. Start with the magneto mounted on the bike's engine body.

It is most likely the carb is gummed up and not allowing the correct amount of fuel/air mixture into the cylinder.
First remove spark plug, connect it to the coil wire, place end of plug on engine block or head. Pull engine over and look for good strong spark. If it is good, then the problem is the carb.

I just foun out that i forgot to add oil to gas mixture to my blo


hello, what you should do is drain out the gas from the tank into a clean container so you can add the oil to it and you should also check your spark plug make sure it's o.k. after draining out the gas try starting the blower a few times with out the spark plug wire connected to the spark plug this will flush out and of the pure gas from the fuel lines, after doing this re-connect the Spark plug wire and add your fuel/oil mixture and re-start, it might take a few times for it to start due to all the gas in the engine but it'll start also if your blower has a primer bulb you may want to prime it a few times after adding the fuel oil mixture to get it in the combustion chamber, if after doing this you still get nothing you'll want to re-place your spark plug it might be fouled out. good luck

check that plug is getting spark (remove plug, w/ cap attached hold tip of plug on cooling fin. pull starter rope, should see spark). if not receiving gas check filter in tank, if ok procede to carb possibly add a bit of starter fluid.
