hey everyone, i have a problem that i'm hoping some of you might be able to help me solve. i am a complete noob when it comes to bikes, and this is my first one, so any insight would be greatly appreciated.
i just recently bought an amstar nostalgia 110cc. it's fully automatic, no shifter, no clutch, no kickstart.
the day it got delivered i took it out for a spin and everything worked beautifully. it started right up and rode smooth. later in the night i decided to take it for a night ride around the neighborhood to check how the lights performed. this is where the problems started. the bike wouldn't start. every time i would try to start the bike the engine would just click and whine like it didn't have enough power.
next day, i talk to the shop i bought it from and we go through all the things that might be wrong. eventually we settle on that the battery might be dead. so, i spend all day looking for a battery that fits inside of the battery compartment. finally find one that fits, hook it up, bike starts up again.
next day, i take the bike out for a short ride around the neighborhood and to the mailbox. works great.
just yesterday, i'm riding along this 30mph road, trying to get my confidence up with gaining speed. i do the road one time and come back to my house, just to let my wife know i'm not dead. i take it out again and as i'm cruising at around 35mph, the bike makes like a rattling noise and then just proceeds to die mid ride.
i had more than enough gas in the tank, i had just filled up. i checked to see if the battery had come loose but it was on tight. i saw a tiny bit of white smoke coming out of the air filter, so idk if it's just running dirty and i need to clean that out?
again, i am a total noob at this stuff, but i am ready and willing to learn and get better so i can take care of my bike.
any takes are welcome, at this point i may just ask the shop to pay to have a mobile mechanic come out and at least just tell me what is wrong, and then i can go from there. thanks in advance for any replies!
