My gig is getting them for as low as I can get them or I just walk...To me its more of a whim than a necessity but in some states can be used as transportation for those who get DeeWees and if that's evident in the state in which you live you have whats called sellers leverage and even better so if the lights worked..

They retailed for under $400.00 when they were brand new....They top out at 23-25mph.......

Seeings it looks pretty straight and looks like its been hardly ridden and has no extra power mods Id start at like $275.00 then negotiate from there.....

Take cars..

Wanted to really thank you from a beginner. Put some picks in after cleaning it a bit and some painting. Going to sell it and move on to another project. I hope someone has fun with the bag of wires and gadgets.

It looks pretty sweet....It should sell quickly....All that wiring crap is a novelty and made out of recycled wiring....

Tell the new owners about this site and the easy to do schematic if they want e-start with charging system to work....

Post it as a 2007 Zida HD4000 49cc Mini Harley...........Thats what you have....

Good Luck with the sale and nice job getting it running too.........

Just leave them unplugged and alone to get it to fire up...

If you touch them together you short the coil to ground causing the engine to not start until the wires are separated which youll need to do to shut it down........

good luck

Re: Pull string

For $5 online you can buy a kill button that mounts to your handlebars and you plug your coil wires into the 2 wires off the button. When you push it down the metal tab hits the handle bars and grounds your coil. If you look at your coil, one of the wires is grounded to the coil frame. The other wire goes to the button and the second wire hooks to the grounded wire.

Any non illuminated 2 pole toggle switch from the local autoparts store will work....pushbutton style too ....even a regular household lightswitch will work....

Good luck

Not for the engine to run......just for the E start and charging system....if you're gonna go the stripped route I suggest gutting the estate or it will generate power with nowhere to go ultimately burning it up and in cases erupting into flames. ...

Good luck and you're welcome

So the yellow or orange colored button isn't on the throttle anymore...not a problem.....

If you don't want to run any other wiring other than a kills witch that's do-able too.

These engines operate just like a weedeater. ..the E start is a novelty

No the whole engine is the ground............

What you have pictured is the power feed tab ..........

Take a jumper cable..Clamp the negative clamp to the engine case....

Touch the tab pictured with the positive clamp....The starter should crank if its good............

Does your bike have the e-starter button on the throttle housing?..If so connect the coil wires coming from the engine case direct to the two wires from the starter pushbutton,,,You have a killswitch now .The coil killswitch wires are the solid red and the solid green wires in picture#1 of the pics you posted coming from the orange engine fancase cover....

Or you can follow this easy to do wire harness for the starter/charging system that's simplified.....Youll need to buy a 4 wire keyswitch or two 2 pole toggle switches if you do...


The illustration schematic only shows the starter/charging system side....The coil and killswitch are separated ...Only thing they share is the keyswitch but on two different wires..

guschristensen Thanks Cam, I believe I’ve started a big mess. When I bought the bike someone had clipped all the wires to the lights, turn signals and speedometer. The kill switch was not attached either. I will have to buy a new one since it’s missing. I am not an electrician so I have no idea what I am doing. What’s the easiest way to install one just to get the bike running. I don’t need any bling on it. I’m attaching some picks the first I’m assuming is the wires to connect a new kill switch, the other round black thing I’m guessing is the coil. Does that have to be wired to anything? And the silver looking box, I have no idea what it’s for.

Your bike has an e-starter,,,try jumping that to get the engine to run...

Ground goes to engine block and positive lead attaches to the tab on the side of the starter,,

When you use the GsMoon pawl and pull the shim isnt as pertinent to the pullstarters operation as it is with the rectangular pawl and other type pullstart as the center of the GsMoon pull pops out to meet the pawl....

If you had the cateye or x7 engine with other style e-starter the shim would be pertinent with the GsMoon pull and pawl....

With the other rectangular type theres always contact between the two but the shim also helps keep out water and debris too...........
