IF I TURN THE KEY, ARE THE LIGHTS SUPPOSED TO WORK WITH OUT STARTING THE ENGINE? OR WILL IT ONLY WORK WHEN I START MY ENGINE? cause i plugged in my key,turned it and the lights don’t work…..

i can’t start the bike yet cause it doesn’t have a pull starter and i don’t think it has elector start!

second question!

how much fuel lines are supposed to go from the gas tank to the carb/motor??

i have 1, and when i pump the thing on the carb, gas sprays out of the second hole….

thanks!

heres 2 videos of my pocket bike!

Thats how much you know about pocketbikes compared to a pocketbike veteran like me...You were told to add a return line from the carb nipple to the fueltank by buying a fuelline kit from Home Depot and yet that advise fell upon deaf eyes.....http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Choppe...ultDomain_0&hash=item2ec4856426&vxp=mtr....In my professional opinion you may need to stick to non-motorized BMX bikes.........!!!

...doesnt this look familiar.......read the description.......... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Starter-Mot...158?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5653a6978e

I bet you 1 million dollars and that POS bike that if you take your mommys car with a set of jumper cables you can use your mommys car battery without the car running to jumpstart the bike by hooking the red jumper clamp to the wire coming out of the starter/generator combo thats going to the starter solenoid and then grounding the black clamp direct to the engine case...........It will however weaken your starter the more you crank it with the higher amperage of the car battery...........

If you bother to scour utube youd find out how to jumpstart one via video...........heres the vid ..It took me shorter time to find the vid than for you to write the thread and theres plenty of threads on the subject if you use the search function http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4ZdkihjwuM

If the old owner removed all that stuff thats most likely because they didnt know jack about pocketbikes either and the harder they make it for you to find out why it wont run buys them time of you ever asking for your money back....The pullstarter,,pullstarter shim and pullstarter bolts aswell as fuelline are probably in his toolbox or in the trash//.........I guarantee its gonna need either a new coil or a new carb and a sparkplug to actually run.........

The crappy e-starters/generators are nothing but a novelty and a waste of time and cash....stop being so cheap and buy a pullstarter..Ive only had about a dozen X1's and all had e-start/generators installed...The key word is HAD!!!.............CAM2 OUT YO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
