Hey guys just got a x22 automatic. It used to start up an drive, but now it won't start at all nothing happens when start button is pressed and it's auto so no kickstarting and no jump starting. What could be the problem?

Sounds like the battery might be dead, Have you tried charging it at a nice low Amp setting?

The Battery Tender Jr is a popular choice for the Super pocketbikes...

If you have a Multi-Meter you could hit the battery on DC Voltage and check to see if it's even close to 12Volt

I checked the battery an it was fine how can I bypass te key ignition cuz mine is broken but it still turns without a key. And it used to start without the key and broken so that cud be the problem? I think bypassing is to just unplug it right?

well, if it's a 2-wire you could just rig up a normal switch, usually "Open" (not connected) is off and "Closed" (connected) is normally on.

Sometimes it's the opposite, you could test the key switch with a multi-meter too.

It's a 4 wire plug. Where can I get a multimeter from? And what else doyou think it can be?

I hooked up a car battery and still nothing. I'm gonna try connecting the bat straight to starter and see why happens.

The starters are junk and so is the motor.

The starter buttons stick. When you get a chance replace it or risk burning your bike to the ground. It's just a momentary switch. Get a heavy duty one from a auto parts store or Radio Shack and mount it where-ever you want.

Yep and I don't think an inline fuse even helped?
