PostPosted: Sat Oct 29, 2011 7:07 pm 
recently did a swap on an 09' and everything worked out... wiring is good, got lights and electric start working but it doesnt fully start up. it was a brand new GY6 and harness... its got gas, oil... and still, when i try and fire it up... it just goes on. i can see smoke exit the exhaust but it kills my battery trying to start it from the electric switch. even when i kick start it, its a no go... anyone got any suggestions?

Auto choke or manual?
Fresh gas?

Have you ever ran that motor befor?
You could try starting spray in the carb.
it could be an auto choke problem. Try to take the filter off the carb and cover it with your hand. To act like a choke

Have you pulled the plug and checked to see if it has spark?

The motor needs these 3 things to run.
Spark
Fuel
Air

Make sure all of these are there and it should fire.

I hear a loud clank from the starter on mine every time I try to start but dont hold the start long enough. I consider it normal but don't have much to comapare to. There is only one other GYruck around here so far.

When I start my bike I turn on the choke, push the start button, and opening the throttle just a bit.

Check if you have all the above mentioned things to get the motor running, spark, fuel, etc...

Can you hear it fire at all? Like will it try to start but you can't get into idle?

Let me know if its a problem with you going into idle, or if it doesn't even start at all.

If you can hear it fire but not go into idle then...

Go to your carb, screw in the idle screw a bit

Then try jetting

Nope. It has a smooth turn/cranking sound and if my motor don't start, then it gets weaker and weaker until my battery drains. But no clanking sounds.
