A dead battery can affect it. Some bikes will not run at all with a dead battery.

The batteries on these are a little small and are really a trouble spot. I have a 2004 for my son and the guy who had it before us put a larger battery on it. It works much better, but even if the machine turns over it may not start if the battery isnt strong enough.

One trick that has worked for me is pushing the electric start and kick starting it at the same time. Usually starts pretty quickly.

They do lose their prime quite easily and that makes it harder to get them started if they have sat for a little while. I have a trickle charger on my sons all the time. The battery runs down after only a few cranks.

The plugs are junk too. Hopefully it doesnt still have the Champion plug in there. If it does throw it as far as you can because once they foul they are shot. Get an NGK, but I dont know off the top of my head what the cross reference is.

I agree with Captain if they sit for any time tough to start with the battery. I usually start the ride with the kick and once it warms up he can start it with the battery. My daughter has a newer 4 stroke and I am a big fan of it. No smoke easy start minimal mess. Can't wait for another year or two so he can move up to the next size and I will go with a 4 stroke for him.

hey everyone question

I cleaned the carb and put it back together and it wouldnt fire. So i took the plug out the new and tried the old one as well and it to wouldnt fire. Theres fuel on it but nothing. We clean the fuel of and checked for spark. The weird thing was it wouldnt spark just but hold tip on head but when we held basically every part of the plug and the white part is would spark. We took the actaully wire withough cap and held it and it arched so we put it back together and nothing. We changed the cap out and same thing. We checked all the wires on the harness and i traced the wired from the coil and theres two little box under right front fender what are they?

I know the battery is dead and i was told the starter dont work. Do you think maybe the coil is bad and its not firing all the time. Seems to be intermdate.

Where can i get parts for the wheeler beside the deal cheaer then the dealer?
