THIS IS DOCUMENT IS A ROUGH DRAFT - IN PROGRESS - A VIDEO WILL ME MADE SOON!

 

1 - insert key and turn to the on position
2 - put handlebar switch to run position
3 - check for any kill tether buttons and make sure they are mounted securely

Squeeze the front brake lever and check the tail light to see if it have illuminated

If it doesn’t then - Repeat but this time apply pressure to the footbrake brake lever and check the tail light to see if it have illuminated

If the brake light is not working still
- locate the fuse holder which is usually under the seat in a clear cylindrical casing . On the red wire between the battery and the starting solenoid
- check the fuse to see if it has broken it’s internal wire
- if broken replace the fuse and start over (this is a common thing no need to worry)

If the fuse was good - then the trouble points to
- dead battery (charge and try again)
- bad key switch
- front right brake lever safety switch unplugged or bad

STAGE2: (tail lights comes on and engine spins over with e start button pressed) but won’t start

- bad kill tether button (red button on the handle bar) or a bad left handlebar On/Off
- Left Handlebar assembly on/off switch is bad
- check wire or wires that connect to the ignition coil to make sure they didn’t slide off (very common) - follow the spark plug wire up to a little black box and look for the spade type connector or connectors and make sure the wires are connected


STAGE3

Remove spark plug from engine
Plug spark plug into the spark plug boot
Lay the metal part of the plug on the metal of the engine and try to start it
You should be a spark at the tip of the plug

No spark still - could be a faulty Stator, coil , cdi or wire harness

If you have spark
- make sure spark plug is no fouled (wet or all black)
- then check fuel is turned on with ample full in the tank
- try starting with choke lever up and down to gauge a difference
