Daughters LT80 has to run before Presidents Day!
Help! Help! Help!
I am at my wits end with my daughter’s bike. I have verified everything 2, 3, 4, 10 times! I have had it kind of run 3 times for about 5 seconds and than sputter out. Other than a few times it would sound like it wanted to run but no go and occasional backfire with the chock on.
Last thing I did was remove the rotor and seen there was quite a bit of build up on the surfaces. I was convinced I discovered the problem. Spark is now stronger than ever with the ohms reading within specs on the coil and the primary and secondary lead on the magneto.
I even took the carb apart for the 3rd "final Inspection". Pilot is a #20, main is a 92.5, and the needle is set to the middle slot... not to rich and not to lean. All orifices are wide open and I confirmed the choke is G2G. This is a fresh rebuild.
The head has a fresh bore with the arrow towards the exhaust and 125PSI compression. The Reed cage is good and the wiring harness and all switches are also G2G. Oh yeah I picked up a DG pipe for it also.
So with all this said, it does not appear that the crank seals are leaking but I was told during the game yesterday that the crank sucks in rather than blowing out. I am now considering bearings and seals. All this seams like allot and getting spendy. Not so... I bought the bike for 300.00 with new tires, carb rebuild, petcock and the head job.
I have spent more money making it look like my daughters bike than anything else. She has been riding a LT50 since she was 18 mos... She is now 6.
