Go to HomeDepot and get a fuelline kit for weedeaters...Its 10 bux...

ebay has the best prices for pullstarts...The X1 uses the GS Moon type.

You need two fuellines..The fuelline kit at home depot comes with two lines and an intank fuel clunker/filter.......One lines feed the other is return...If the pawl is there then you need just the pullstarter...If the pawl is missing youre gonna need pullstarter and pawl with starter pawl bolt....

i have no idea what a pawl is…so, in the spot where the pull starter was supposed to be is empty, i mean theres a 8 sided screw. and then you can see around it theres 2 cut outs? that makes it spin…….

If there is no paw you need both parts.

This is what an X1 pawl looks like..[Its the silver round disc]..............Theres also a rectangular box looking pawl but X1's mostly come with the round type....

First time I bought the wrong housing, so last month I got the alum rectangle paw for $4 while ordering from SP4Less. Can find a decent price on the tubeless rim air valve, bent, for less than $6 to $10 each. SP4Less only has straight ones, $6 shipped for 1 and $10 for two.

Is the carb and fuel lines new from this summer or last sumer because if it sat for a year the carb and fuel could be clogged and dirty. Make sure your gas cap is vented.

Could be a weak coil also, they can go out at anytime.

I just pulled my carb apart today and when I stuck the needle back in the bowl it got jammed up against the float fork somehow and wouldn't let gas in the bowl.
Pull off the bowl and see if anything looks out of place and see if there is any gas in the bowl. Just because the parts are new doesn't always mean they are good. I'm sure everyone on here has gotten a faulty part before
