My x18 was working perfectly until 1 day i started it up and it turned on and shut off, i though maybe just the engine was cold but it wouldn't start up again. So i looked up on the internet and came up with this i checked and switched the ngk spark plug changed the oil / drained the old oil made sure fuel was getting to the carb running perfect opened the screw on the bottom of the carb checked the cdi plugged in , when i press the starter it sounds as if it would start normally but doesn't turn over no mater how long i do it for, ( dont do it to long don't want to screw up the starter , also i read i should try and kick it ,so i do and its still not starting up and the spark plug hole has great compression PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!:(:(

can you check to make sure the battery is at 12 Volts? if it is too low the cdi might not be able to fire, and it wouldn't be able to crank....

does the starter click click click if you hit the starter button? this can be a typical sign of a low voltage.
