Whats up PBP!!!New guy here from miami. So to cut to the chase,I traded one of my rc trucks for a x7 pocket bike.My wife was furious about at first but after she rode it she changed her mind.So after riding it for a while I looked at the gas tank and notice it was clear as day.Meaning not oil mix which I think is bad lol,I emptied it out and and got some two stroke oil and some 93 gas and haven't stopped riding since.I however do have an issue,the bike wont start on its own.I have to use starter fluid or a drop of gas to start it.Can anyone point out what might be wrong? As of today the bike is naked,I stripped it from its panels to paint them.I have been sanding and priming the whole night.Hopefully by Saturday night she will be painted and Ill upload pics.The previous owner told me the battery was dead and If I replaced it would run like new(meaning lights,alarm,starter).Well while I was taking it apart I noticed a wire was not connected to anything.I checked over everything and found out it came of the fuse capsule,so the current was interrupted. I re-soldered it and the gauges lit up and alarm set off,I was stoked.I got a charger from a pocket bike my nephew use to own and now everything works.This is the only pic I have now and will take more.I hope I learn alot from you guys and enjoy my stay here.
