the valve timing mark is on the flywheel on the Hipster's.

Remove the large flat blade screw from the top of the left hand side casing. Turn the engine either by hand (using kickstart with ignition off), turning rear wheel in gear, or by removing the "kymco" badge with three 8mm bolts and using a 19mm deep socket on the crank, until you see two marks (one says F one say T) the F one is the advance firing mark, the T mark is the timing mark. Keep turning the engine over and watch your valves, wait for the exhaust valve to close, inlet valve to open and then close again then the next time you see the T line will be TDC. This is where you set your valve timing from.

Check your fuses and if they're good, check the connections at the far end of the battery cables. If they are clean and tight, check the battery cables themselves for continuity. If all of the above are good, start troubleshooting from the keyswitch back. If you know which terminals to jump out at the keyswitch for the lights, jump them out; if the lights light up, suspect the switch.

Hi ice_basher

You need to check the following

1) . The carborator & air filter are proper or not.
2). The race & pickup is adjusted or not.
3). Ask your mechanic to chk the power output in bhp. Match it with the pescribed one.
4). The accelerator & clutch are properly working or not.

Your problem can be because of any of these. Please do a through check.

the mechanic did not put back the thrust washers on the pivot shifter rod when he fixed your bike. You must disassemble the transmission and, install the missing thrust spacer washers the dealer will have the shop drawings and, the part; it's an easy fix.
