For the not starting issue, I normally start at the spark plug. They come with some weird Chinese brand plug that may or may not work. After that, the carb. Sometimes they come too rich. Sometimes they come too lean. From experience (my two SYXMOTO bikes), the carb is your major culprit. Swap to a NGK and try to start it. You may have to turn your idle screw up kinda high to get it to start. After that, give it a run. Long stretches of WOT will run your bowl dry. You'll need to either mod the stock carb, or go to a pumper. AVOID THE SHA Chinese clone carbs!!! They are guaranteed to break. All three of mine broke within a few hours of install. I swapped to a pumper, and the bike is doing much better.

I have a syx moto pocket bike and its a 49cc 2-stroke and it won't start at all no matter what you do to it i just got it rode it for three min and it won't start again please help
I have a apex from syx moto I'm telling you as a fellow rider send it back and get something else when I got mine about 6 months ago it did the same thing the first day right out of the box my chain broke off and a broken brake cable every time I took it out for a ride something would break the second time the exhaust pipe broke where it bolts to the manifold so long story short I kept on sending messages and emails to syx moto about the lemon 🍋 they sold me after a few months of sending me part after part they finally refund me the whole cost of my bike $375 or so and I still have the bike runs tops Now it's all aftermarket parts the only thing OEM is the frame and fairings.

I bought mine on the website and they want the thing to basically be in the box and sent back

Yours looks different from mine?
I changed everything I had to replace almost every part wheels, muffler,motor etc. There a rumor going on the web that people are suing syx moto for selling dangerous bikes and old stock parts like the tires after two rides they started separating if you had your bike for less than 60 days I would send it back for a full refund
