ey every1!!

my frends bike is trippin...

he bought a new filter and stack, and replaced the old bolts...

but wen he tried to fire it up, nuthin would bidge..

the pullstart, the chain, flywheel... everything...
i kno that these parts are all connected, so i told him to check everything out and call me in the mornin...

if he doesnt fix it, wat could be sum solutions to solve this?

i dont think it had anything to do with him installing a new filter, but could it be the new bolts? there longer than the stock 1s, so could they be hitting sumthin inside?

thanx for the help

btw, my frend would post it himself, but he doesnt have internet...(just moved)

dont know if this helps, but my lawn edger locked up like that once and i just broke it loose with a wrench.....i think it's cause i set it outside for a while and it somewhat rusted the rings to the cylinder wall....i just lubed down the walls with some oil and wiped it clean and ran a little more oil in the gas than usual for a bit and havent had any problems since....

thing is, it wont pull...

i was thinkin that the bolts are hittin the fly wheel, but the bolts in that location are the exactly same size/length as the stock 1s...

and i will tell him to try the bolt thing... i dont think it could be rusted tho.. he keeps it in his garage and takes really good care of it...

previous to installing his filter, the bike was running...

during the install of his filter, he emptied out the tank and carb...

i will still tell him to check that tho..

im really thinkin its his other bolts tho...
