Hello there everyone my name is Jesse,

so my little brother got scamed into buying this little bike for $80. He said the kid was ridding it around before he bought it, but he jumped it off of a truck the day he bought it because it dosnt have a battery. He said he jumpped it once here at our house but then him and his friends thought they would try and fix it or something and now it is in need of a little tlc. All the parts are here just not hooked up now i guess. I just really would like some help in getting it running again for my little bro. I can send pictures and whatnot and i am willing to put money into it, for now though i am just waiting to here someone replie to this and then i will gladley do whatever you think i would need to do. I am really just looking for someone who could help me fix the dang thing and first off, tell me what it is lol. The only thing on it is the model number Gs-12, and tiny letters that say 100cc. Ive looked and looked my self to try and fix it but well, im really dumb lol. So if someone could please take the time to help me i would really be greatful. It has a push button starter button but my little bro felt the need to cut the wire coming from it and well, i have no idea what to do. so if someone could please help me, i will take as many pictures as i can, or even bring it to someone close or video chat with whoever would like a more detailed looked at it...

Welcome Jesse, you have come to the right place! send some pictures, so we can see in what kind of shape the bike is, we can also Identify it for you, tell you what kind of frame it is, and what kind of motor. I'm telling you right now, these little things take some work, and a an investment in some parts and tools you will need to make your project come to life... once rebuilt, these bikes can be surprisingly fast and fun to ride...

From what you have told me I'm guessing it's a 110cc 4 stroke super pocket bike.... but I could be wrong.

Cheers.

Mathieu

im sorry if all three of you guys dont see my reply, but to answer all in one what it is doing is nothing lol. i want to know how to jump it first i guess, but with the starter switch no longer hooked up i guess my first question is where could i run a new wire from the switch to? next, shout out to the hypno toad lol, i freaking love futurama... i promise i am about to go take some pictures and post them right after you guys read this, and from what i gathered i thought i was a terminator or a rocket rocky or something like that... give me like 20 or 30 minutes though and i will come back with a handful of pictures, thank you all so much

Yeah one site will call it terminator, another will call it GS-12. We call them Cateye. But it's the first time I've seen the one you have before... In short, chinese pocket bikes are pretty much all very similar... and almost all have the same or similar motors.

you need a new starter button, to answer your first question. also, you could buy a battery so you don't have to jump start it all the time... there should be a working pullstart on it. if the bike was working when he bought it, you should be able to pullstart it.

Negative to the frame or engine case and Positive to the wire coming out of the starter will tell you if that starter works. When its stopped it will turn the starter and when its running it should be pushing 13 volts or so.. You can go from there!

CAM2 posted this in another thread on the same starting subject.. Same Subject here!

Good info and good diagram!!

I was thinking Cateye or X1 or X2, but the 100cc sticker is what I question?? Is it a 2 stroke or 4 stroke?? Is the clylinder straight up and down or stick out towards the front at a slight angle?? Does the cylinder head have a plastic cover over it and the pull start mounts to the end of the Starter Motor / Generator. If you have a Cateye the engine will look like this, it can be electric start & pull started.

I am not very good with computers, but you need 10 or 15 post to be able to put an avatar photo and to post 5 photos on your Threads or someones Posts. Avatar 90Kb and the 5 have to be 512Kb or less.
I load my photos to Pictures in Win. 7 home premium, then drag them to Paint and resize them under the Image button, resize button, pixel *** then load about 1350 x 950 in the resize box click OK. Click the Red X in the upper box corner and click save.
Or use Photobucket, or some other picture site. Does the engine in my photo look like yours?
