Batteries are generally not required to have spark on a moped.

This one has a jumper wire so it has to have one kinda stupid in my opinion

So I got the spark figured out but does anyone know how to start this thing the clutch is kinda weird and the belt seems loose is it normal for the belt to be loose?

You shouldn't really need to use the decompression lever, you just pedal like a madman until the motor kicks on. Loose belt can cause the belt to slip which is no good. If you want to use the decompression lever, hold it until the motor starts to spin and then let go of it while still pedalling

Do you have any idea what speed it kicks in?

Check to make sure the lever on the rear wheel is set to motor mode and not pedal mode

No, just make sure you're in motor mode.

I got it to fire on starting fluid but can’t get it to keep running any suggestions I already cleaned the carb

Re: 1982 Honda hobbit no spark

It’s getting fuel to the carb just not into the engine

Re: 1982 Honda hobbit no spark

Clean the carb , again . Be sure the idle passages are rpistine .

Even the most experienced professionals have to clean carbs more than once .

Re: 1982 Honda hobbit no spark

Ok I cleaned the carb again still the same should i just buy a cheap carb?

I put it through the ultrasonic cleaner twice and cleaned it as good as I could

Re: 1982 Honda hobbit no spark

Ultrasonic is great for cleaning pennies .

It doesn't always do so good on/in tiny carb passages .

Spray brake cleaner through every passage . Make sure the spray is coming out where it's suppose to . Follow the cleaner with compressed air .

Re: 1982 Honda hobbit no spark

If your plug is dry after attempting to start w clean carb, choke on, fuel bowl full, then you most likely need new crank seals. Finding the clutch puller is the hardest part 26x1.5
