Peugeot 103

Hello, I just purchased a clean peugoet 103 a couple weeks ago and the bike ran really good when I first bought it. 2 days after I bought it I went to ride it and it started and then randomly died on me mid ride and I’ve been having trouble ever since trying to get it back up and running. I replaced the carb with a dellorto 15.15 and got a polini intake to match the stock port. Went to start the bike up and still no luck. Checked the spark and saw that it wasn’t getting a continuous solid spark it would just flash for a second then go off. I cleaned the points and reset the timing on it and still had no spark. Ended up going and getting a new spark plug even though the other one looked fine. Hooked it up and boom the bike has great spark now but still no luck with the bike starting. Checked compression and compression is above 103. I even fed fuel into the carburetor because I thought it could’ve been a fuel issue but that didn’t work either. I’m getting very frustrated with this thing because everything on the bike such as the horn and light work as I try to start the bike but the bike won’t start. I don’t know what else it could be. Any help is greatly appreciated. Picture below is my bike. Thanks

Ignition switch needs to be in "on" position...

if it is and you have spark and compression spray some carb cleaner down the spark plug hole, replace plug and see if it pops

Chlorinated carburetor cleaners are non-flammable and a waste of money , as are all carb cleaners .

Use flammable brake cleaner instead . A much better choice in every regard .

i am gonna guess since timing is a different process on Peugeot with no flywheel key that maybe you should tell us how you set the timing.

Re: Peugeot 103

since your trouble shooting. start by bypassing the brakelight circuit. Disconnect the black wire coming from the stator at the point where it joins the double black wire connector. Then use a clip lead or some other good wire to ground the single black wire from the stator. Grounding this wire cleanly is very important as the ignition will not spark at all with out this wire being grounded good.

Aslo unplug the blue wire in the same area. This is the kill switch wire and now it it will be out of the mix.

You said you replaced the carb, did you re jet it properly?
