My daughters kitty cat has been sitting for a year and wont start.

Battery is fully charged, fresh fuel, new sparkplug, starter spins very strongly. But not even a hint of it firing

Have the brake lever locked, kill switch in "RUN" position, fuel lever to "ON" position.

Tried arcing the sparkplug off a case bolt, but didnt look like it was sparking.

These youth models also have automatic choke.

I'm usually pretty good with these things, but no go with this one.

Anyone?

If it's sat there a year without running and if you didn't put anything in the gas to stabilize it, your jets are clogged and you'll need to clean the carb.

What if the plug is wet after cranking?

I think I would try another plug a see if it had spark with it, always a chance you could have got ahold of a bad plug.

The old plug also wouldnt start (thats why I changed it), but you just gave me an idea! This AC also comes with a kick-starter. Gonna try kicking it over to see if the plug sparks.

You know what a pain in the ass it is trying to kick and hold the plug at the same time

My granddaughter's 2006 50cc is the same way after sitting even a short period, been that way since it was new. Now I don't even bother trying to start it without a shot of starting fluid. Give it a puff, and it's good to go. I do have to agree about getting rid of the old fuel if it's been sitting that long, and also you should change the plug, it's only a couple bucks.

Starter fluid got it running on the first try. Thanks Lump!


Wondering what the problem could be. I'm thinking the Pilot Jet is too small and its making the mixture too lean? Took awhile for the motor to idle down.

Glad to help. I'm not sure why they're like that, but if a puff gets it going for the day I"m fine with that myself.

Quick follow-up to my post:

The Idle Screw was turned in way too far!

After the motor had warmed up, it was still running in high idle mode. So I backed out the idle screw about 4 complete turns until the rpm's dropped and it purred like a kitten. Sometimes its the simplest things...
