why would it...

i was riding my ped the other day when all of a sudden it died and wouldn't start, i cleaned thealready clean carb, checked all the conections and they were fine, then checked the spark plug and there was no spark, so i tried a new plug and there was no spark, does anyone here know why it would all of a sudden stop sparking? any advise would be much appreciated

What kind of bike? Did you read through Fred's guide in the articles section of "resources" on this site? Check for loose wires around the coil. If it's a puch, check the wires that plug into the horn. If you see any stray brown wires or blue w/black stripe wires not connected to anything near the horn, than that's probably the culprit.

Re: why would it...

one of your wires is disconnected (or a light is burned out). check all your wiring connections. that should solve it. if you have no spark, it's electrical/wiring.

Check yer tail light bulb

Many peds have the electricals run so that if that burns out, no spark...supposedly a safety measure.


Re: Check yer tail light bulb

the bike is a batavus bingo and the tail light is broken, and the front light does work
