Re: pocket bike wont start

I don't think is the problem of the air filter~! you used it in the rain....maybe water went into your engine when you was riding it~!

Mine won't start either. Can't figure out. How can I test battery? Does x8 take oil?

just rinse out the filter with your gas mixture, and let it air dry, and if the bike still starts then your lucky and got no water in it

Re: pocket bike wont start

kk i took off the starting wire thing, the thing you pull to start the bike. There is some sort of wire, like a electric one, it felt kind of wet. I am guessing that is the problem...

^^^-- True. None of the new kids ever seem to read the "For off-road use only" sticker ... sometimes even the bigger kids manage to miss that one, too.

Re: pocket bike wont start

C'mon now, I've ridden my cag and x-15 in rain, sleek and snow, since in my part of the world the weather doesnt give us any choice. But anyway I NEVER had any problems because of riding when its abit wet out, the bikes start to rust faster, and require abit more maintenance but thats it.. Unless you try to ride these things UNDER water they should be fine.
If you are worried about water getting into your engine, then you get a fully shielded air-filter and relocate it to mount higher of the ground, or come up with something clever to shield the air-filter from all the water thats on the ground and spraying of yer tires!
