Solenoid is sticking, age,heat, dirt etc on the solenoid shaft makes it stick. It may be possible to replace the solenoid assy, but easier to replace the unit as a whole motor and solenoid, it may also be non serviceable. Make sure you did not loose any teeth on the flywheel. it will make a deadspot, motor spins free without engaging the teeth. And if it catches one while spinning it will break another one off. Good Luck

Sounds like your clutch has locked up. Most likely the oil that was in your clutch has gummed up and locked the plates together. Pull the clutch in and try rolling the bike back and forth. If the back wheel spins freely then it may be another issue. If it doesn't move try pushing it forward and back either by sitting on it or by standing astride it. If wheel free's up then you should be able to select gears.

There is a switch built into the hand brake. If you pull your hand brake, and don't hear a click sound, the switch probably needs replaced. Try someone else's hand brake or one on a new bike. If you don't hear a distinct click sound, you need to replace the switch.

Not sure if you want to do that because the carburetor is tuned for a pump. Or you will have to adjust the carbs

Hi, Anonymous if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add oil mark.
5. Never overfill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

Internal combustion gasoline engines need 3 things in order to start and run. Those 3 things are: Fuel, Compression and Spark. If any of those 3 are missing, it will never start. However, that being said, there are a lot of moving parts inside the engine that all have to work together in perfect harmony in order for fuel, compression and spark to all come together at the precise moment. If it were mine and I knew nothing about engine repair, I would take it to a bike shop and get an estimate of the cost to get it running. Likely you'll have to pay for the estimate, but they will usually credit you that amount if you go ahead and have them fix it. If the bike has been sitting in storage for any longer than 6 months and it was left with gas in it, then likely the problem is the carbuerator or fuel injectors are gummed up and will need to be disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt. You cannot allow todays so-called modern gasoline to remain in the fuel lines during extended storage, as disaster and great expense will be the result.
Good luck. If you get it running, please wear a helmet when you ride.

the K-tronic ignition system on these bikes has very little advance until the engine is turning over 2000 rpm. this makes them sluggish at best on takeoff. the carb is also built with a very lean low side jet that is for all intents and purposes non adjustable. the best one can do is tear it down give it a very thorough cleaning making sure all passages inside are spotless. get a quality rebuild kit and replace everything in the accelerator pump system to be sure you get a good initial charge of fuel when you open the throttle. at best you may still get a lean condition until the engine is warmed up unless you keep playing with the "choke". one may do or have a re-jet job done that will give a bit more response and power boost but at a significant fuel mileage loss which for me is not worth it as these big boys don't get very good mileage to begin with and would lead to more frequent fuel stops.
