Re: need help identifying my pocket bike

Only the first picture came out halfway decent ... the others are too dark to tell what it is. Put the bike in the driveway in full sunlight, and take a few more.

From what I can tell, that looks like it MAY be a Lucky 7, which is the best of the best of the Chinese-made air-cooled bikes. I can't be 100% certain on that, though, but the girder frame and removeable swingarm makes me think that's what it is.

Re: need help identifying my pocket bike

One of two possible reasons:
-Not enough gas flowing into the carburetor.
-Top end reed flutter.

Gas flow: replace all lines with 1/4" fuel lines. Do the petcock mod, and install an inline fuel shutoff valve. Some people also bore out the barb on the bottom of the gas tank a little larger, too.

Top end reed flutter is when the reeds in the engine are flapping back and forth so fat that they can't make a good seal on the cylinder. Poor seal = loss of compression and power. Solution: change reeds out to better ones, such as carbon fiber or fiberglass. You can also change to a triple-stage reed set, such as the Black Widows, or do davation's cheap triple stage reed mod by cutting up the old tin reeds and layering them over a set of new reeds in your engine.

Re: need help identifying my pocket bike

Petcock mod is easy - all you need is some J-B Weld. Take the petcock apart - the only piece of it you're going to use is the body. Lay the petcock body face-up (hole facing upwards) on the counter, and mix up some J-B Weld. Where the white knob was, you're going to fill in that hole. Once the J-B Weld has dried, stand the petcock up like you're installing it back on the carburetor. Now, get your drill, and very carefully go straight down through the barb on the top of the petcock, all the way down through the bottom hole. (Btw, don't forget to remove that O-ring on the bottom for this part, or else you'll tear it up and need to buy another.) Once you have it drilled out, re-install on the carb. Basically, what you're doing is making the petcock into a straight pipe, which is why you need the inline fuel shutoff.

As for the pullstart, sounds like you're pulling it too hard. When you pull, don't go all the way to the stop - do like a 3/4 pull.

Re: need help identifying my pocket bike

Out of gas .............? Spark? Maybe the coil loosened up a little, and it's not gapped properly.

What's the bike doing, besides not working? Turning over okay, no grinding noises when you pull it? Let us know exactly what it's doing.

a serial number does very little...post up a picture...Use photobucket to post the pic to bypass the post count needed to post one in order to get identification sooner.....
