Re: Just got an X7, need advice
Welcome aboard, nice find, how much did you pay?? Well, you have no way to start it. It will run on its own, gut the starter/generator, break the magnets out of the housing. Take the wiring and stuff off the center shaft. You want an empty house and a shaft with a starter pawl and starter cover w/ rope, and an M8, 8mm nut to hold the pawl on the shaft.
There are 2 kinds, I like the round pawl w/ Moon cover w/ 2 steel pins. If you get an 8mm x 1.25 nut and maybe washer you could put the nut on the shaft and use an air or electric drill to turn the engine over to see if it run. Open up the carb piston w/ the throttle cam on top, put a little 2 stroke gas down the carb, hit it quick with the drill, see what happens.
Parts are pretty cheap on eBay, look under 43, 49cc pocket bike parts, or X7 PB Parts. There is SP4Less and PB Parts in Florida that have parts.
On the world wide web scooterparts4less and pocketbikeparts both with a .com on the end. Have fun.
