Question about Power Motorcycles
If the radio problem showed up, at the same time the loss of power did...I would check the charging circuit, to see if something is loading it down heavily. This is only an educated guess, since I don't even know what brand of bike you have, or have the wiring diagram for it. An alternator with a bad diode in it, or a nearly dead short on its output, can act as a brake. If your bike uses other electrical accessories, or electric start...and the battery is being charged properly, and the other accessories work ok...then I would start looking for something binding or dragging, in the drive belt system. Especially, if the last belt wore out quickly. Good luck.

and it won't start! Doesn't seem like anything is happening at all. Got the fuel switch ON the ignition is turned on the starter switch is on bike is in neutral, and then I hit the electric starter and nothing happens at all. Silent as a hall. Kickstart won't seem to do anything either. What on earth could this be? Also, I noticed what has now been my THIRD loose tube on the bike. I understand there are supposed to be one or two, apparently, but I just noticed a third loose tube. It's the tube that's hooked up to something on the carb right beneath the CHOKE switch. The other end of that tube isn't connected to anything at all -- and this is the first time I've noticed it like that, which seems to mean it must've been hooked up to something at one point. Can anybody help me out? I had serious riding plans this weekend that are going to be turned into serious riding dreams unless I can get this bike running. Could it be the battery? And why would the battery be dead if this is a brand-new bike? And what the heck is that loose tube on the side of the carburetor??, Always try the simple stuff first. No matter what the problem actually is, you may never find it if you don't take care of the basics. For anything to work you must have electricity. Check the fuse. It is in the left tool case. Even if it LOOKS OK replace it with a new one. Then check the battery fluid. Top off if necessary. Put a 2 amp or less charger on it and walk away for 2 or 3 hours. When you come back check as many connectors as you can find around the battery and in the headlight housing. Now try to start the bike. If it now turns over then that problem is fixed and you can go on to things like the spark plug. The hoses on the carb are for vent / over flow. Do NOT hook them up to anything. It will affect carburation. ,,,

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, the only factor to be checked that could foul a sparkplug for your bike would be the 2T oil injector/pump. There is too much 2T oil going to the combustion chamber. Either the injector would require restricting or for some reason, there is also 2T oil in the fuel tank (pre-mix).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

you probably need to adjust the tension. if you look somwhere near the drive belt then you see a spring. tighten the spring to tighten the belt.
