You can try to remove cover and remove coil. Then, take some emery cloth and carefully clean the end of coil that faces flywheel. Then reinstall coil and remember to set gap per manufacturers recommendation. If your not sure you can use a feeler gauge and set to .004 -.005". This is slightly closer than most but will be OK, and should give a little more spark as well. Also, don't forget to clean up magnet on flywheel with emery cloth too. Doing this should give you as much spark as you can get from coil, if it still isn't enough you may have to replace coil. Good luck and I hope this helped.

Weak fire on pocket bike


Hi, I do a lot with these bikes, I think if you are getting a weak spark there is a couple things to check. First, do you understand how it builds the power to create the spark? The magnet in the flywheel has to be very close to the magnito or coil, if the gap is too much it will cause a weak spark, if the magnet is weak, weak spark, if the coil is shorting internally, weak spark. If the plug wire is damaged, weak spark. I hope this helps you.

Weak spark wont start


Sounds like stator pick up or stator its self is rusty causing a weak spark, (Just sand off) , or the coil is bad or spark plug wire is corroded

Weak spark,willnot start,changed plug


A weak spark can be attributed to a number of issue:
1. Wire from the magnetto to the spark plug is saturated with oil (clean well with degreaser)
2. Spark plug cap deteriorated. (most are not easily replaceable)
3. Spark plug fouled (insure you are using new)
4. Significant build up of rust on the flywheel (lightly sand rust off)
5. Bad Magnetto or CDI (especially if it has gotten wet or is cracked.) Note: (Cost typically prohibitive for replacement).
6. Spark plug gap significantly out of specs. (Regap to specs, retry)

If you are certain you have a weak spark, these are typical causes. Often, more likely problem is carburation, fuel filter and/or fuel lines - which are much easier and less expensive fixes! Hope for the fuel lines being cracked...Good luck :)

Weak spark from coil to distributor cap. How do I fix it?


Check the cable, replace it with another cable to see if it is the wire or the distributor. If the spark is the same with the other cable it is the connection from the cap. I would remove the cap to see if anything is in it of it is corroded. While you have the cap off, look on the inside of it for erosion or corrosion.
