Hard to start.......

Anthony Castellanos /

Hello people of mopedarmy i am having trouble with my 85 puch cobra 2 speed its really hard to start. like i just took it to a moped shop and had the points changed new spark plug new tranny oil and a major engine tune up carb clean etc... the first day i got it back ran like a champ second day is when it was hard to start like five or six times of putting the choke on and peddling till my legs are jelly but once it starts it runs like a champ. anthing you guys can think of to make it start up easyer would be a big help thanx.

Re: Hard to start.......

you could be running rich, and have fouled your plug already. try a new plug. clean your carb again.

Hard to start.......

I'd take it back to the place I paid all that money to, and tell them that the day after they 'fixed', it wasn't fixed.

Take it back asap and DON"T monkey with yourself, you got at least some kind of repair warranty did you?

well i talked to the original owner of the bike and she said it hadnt been run in 15 YEARS!!!! and i was like maybe that could be the problem too but since i have been running it every day and its getting easyer to start. I am taking it back saturday to have HP Mopeds put a bi turbo exahuast put on it i think the exahuast might have been clogged very black in there. so i hope to see a difference. thanx guys.
