soo i bought about 5 x22 or x18 or x 19 x something idk. (different style bikes but they all have same motor) bikes in parts.. all of them are missing ignition coils, most of them crank but i dont really know if it will start.. i was wondering if i can get some help, im not sure where to plug up the fuel lines and there is a fuel pump ? ill take some more pictures to tell yall what im trying to figure out tomorrow.

im just trying to get at least 2 bikes running and ill be happy. i dont care for all the other stuff like (gauges or lights) i just want the engine to start and breaks working. think yall can help me by pass all the other unneeded stuff? sorry for the bad English

thanks for looking! and this is for my summer project. for whoever was wondering how much i got my bikes for.. i got all 5 for 200$

i was wondering how do you connect the fuel pump (or is it a oil cooler?)? it seems like there is a plug that goes into the exhaust line? and another question. when you start the bike with electricity, volts goes into the cdi from the magneto, then leave to the ignition coil, i was wondering do you guys know how much volts it gives off when going to ignition coil? (or does it even matter how much volts..) im trying to make sure my cdi works before i buy a new one..

once i get 1 bike running then i can get the others up and running by myself

No fuel pumps. Need to post pics, might make it easier for people to to tell you what you got and how you can go about getting things together.

its easy to hook up your bike 'race style'

The only thing I can tell you about the (plug) that goes into the exhaust line is these bikes or some of them had emissions that a rectangular piece went onto the header pipe for emmisions and a tube went from that to atmosphere it just sucks in air to mix with the exhaust to lower emissions
Hope this clears up that question for u

Sounds like the float is stuck or the needle it pushes up on my be jammed up with gunk.

But maybe you could just need fuel lines?

I am not 100% sure quite yet...

i have a 100% cleaned carburetor.. i have opened the carburetor 4 times to fix it.. and i thought if the needle is all the way up then it stops the leak? or is it when the needle all the way down it stops the leak?

Up should make it stop (just like a toilet) but it's "usually" made out of brass! <---scratches easily due to stuff other than fuel going through the carburetor!

find out where the oil leak is, thats most important, gaskets or silicone will fix it

You are a SUPER smart dude blitz!

Listen to the man PLEASE!

Blitz Actually knows exactly what he is talking about!

I'm tossing out "random" guesses!

4-strokes and leaking oil do not sound like a "Good" Mix to me...

id say all motors leak, you need to determine if its bad enough to go through the trouble of fixing it, i could type a book on my personal experiances but ill just say that as long as its away from my rear tire and breaks, i might live with it
my drain plug leaked till i teflon taped it

No carb is ever 100% clean. Even out of the box there can and are problems. I've cleaned dozens of carbs and they are never a clean as I want them but I live with it knowing I can't make them cleaner. Your floats stuck or not adjusted correctly.
