Thats bullcrap. a cateye weighs only about 45 pounds. i know i repair and restore them pal.You don't need a battery or wiring to make the engine run, but you need to run the small coil wire to a toggle or kill switch and the other side to ground, so you can ground the coil when you want to turn it off.
I always, check or replace the plug and check for a spark and check the gap around .028" will work for starters. If you have a good spark, you can move on. Make sure all your bolts are tight. If the pull starter works, open the piston with the hole, in the carb, put a teaspoon of gas there or in the plug hole and pull start it to see if it pops or fires and or runs.
You have a 49cc Zenoah piston port copy engine, with a copy carb of a 15mm Walbro WYK pumper carb. Need to push the bulb a few time to get gas from the gas tank, needs a choke when cold. I have all kinds of new parts for that engine, cause I have a seat go-ped style scooter. I put a billet alum manifold with boost bottle fitting amd a WT-813 Walbro w/ acell pump for great starts, designed for your engine, and then a V-stack w/ choke cause the 813 has no choke plate, and a Jet Pro racing exhaust, it wants to pop wheelies & it only weights 48lbs. A Cateye is probably closer to 100lbs. You need an X1-X7 HP Fatty exhaust.
Nice introduction...i have a cateye and i am the C.O.O. of a company that repairs and restores pocket bikes and scooters
Mr Cool over here knows all... lolThats bullcrap. a cateye weighs only about 45 pounds. i know i repair and restore them pal.
Ignore that unhook and unhook the Speedometer.. What else happens? Do the lights work? Does the Starter click over? The Speedometer uses magnets on the front wheel. The other wires are for the light inside it and the blinker markers. Time to get a volt meter...
