Ok so I am trying to sell my GP MX3 bike with no chain (it broke), and it wont start. It feels like the engine is trying to start because it pushes a little air out the exhaust. Last time I started it I picked up the back wheel and it was spinning. So I am wondering if it wont start because it has no chain and the wheel is always spinning a little.

Please help quick as I have someone looking at it tonight.


Thanks

Is it hard to pull? You could have broken a clutch spring or just messed up the gap when the chain broke. Pull the housing off and see if it's rubbing anywhere, the wear on the shoes should be even, and your springs should be in tact.

Nick is right. The wheel should spin freely until the RPMs are high enough to drive the clutch shoes out to the flywheel.

Ok so I checked the clutch moves freely. Also I forgot to mention that when the chain fell off the engine cut out
