I am a real newbie on tinkering with my CT110 (or any bike for that matter)
My bike was going fine, I left it for a while and started it and it would stall when put into gear.
Tried to adjust the clutch, then...........
I thought I would clean the tank, so I took that off and cleaned the inside of it...
got all the water out - reattached it.
  • Adjusted my valves, did that a few times, think I have that right.
  • Pulled the carby off ( it is a newish one Keinin ) made sure all the jets etc were clean.
  • put it all together and it doesn't start.
  • If I chucked some "start ya bastard" in, it fires and starts for a second. but nothing after that.
I checked the spark plug, which is new and it has spark
Turned it over with out the lead connected, pulled it out and it's not wet.

I am thinking that I may have done something to the float in the Carby and possibly no fuel is getting into the motor?
there is fuel going to the carb.

or there is too much fuel?
I noticed when I leave the bike for a while and come and kick it, it starts for a second then dies....

I have pulled the carby off a few times and checked everything
Yes there is fuel getting to it...
adjusted the valves a few times, I think I have the timing marks

I have watched heaps of videos on YouTube, but I can't seem to find out what is wrong.....

Yep I am a newbie mechanic trying to be one and start a new hobby.......
Would love to know what everyone thinks and what advice they have for me....

Thanx Squeak......

I did pull the crankcase apart and I took the "starter" out, could it be that I didn't put the Strator back in properly? thought out this at 2am this morning....
