View Full Version : Chinese mini moto running problems

Got this mini moto with no pull start and managed to start with a drill and seem to work fine. Put a new pull start on which is incredibly difficult to pull, if this a concern?

Anyway this wasn't my main problem which is upon changing the fuel line it starts revs normally, then revs uncontrollably and cuts out. Also doesn't wheel doesn't seem to turning enough to move when I'm on it.

Could this be a single problem or many?

Sounds like a number of issues.

Engine rev on after changing the fuel line could be a kink or block in the line causing the engine to run lean and rev up, also give the carb a clean if it has been sat a while.
If it's reving up and not moving this would be a clutch issue, if it's Chinese it's only a couple of quid for a new clutch, unless you go for the adjustable BZM one (approx 50)
Also check the chain, clutch bell and front sprocket,

What pullstart did you fit? The metal ones are very stiff, also they don't last long they shatter under the vibration of the engine!
Also check it's fitted correctly as that could make it harder to pull.
