Kazuma - Will Not Start

Recommended Posts

It has spark, compression, gas, new cdi box, coil, alt, ignition switch but still wont start! The handlebar starter button doesn't work most times. Sprayed starter fluid - still nothing. Shift indicator lights up & horn works. I can't figure out why this just wont start. Any advice and I'm all ears.

its probably a meercat ,,, not sure what engine size ...

For Meerkat50-4A, Panda100-4SA, Cougar250-4M

1. For TDC Mark

Looking from the right hand side of the engine casing, the magnet on the crankshaft, which form part of the generator has mark on it. The arrow on the magnet must face the mark on the casing, that is TDC

2. When the piston is TDC, that's ignition timing.

Looking at the camshaft from the front of the engine the following will be seen

( a ) A slot in line with the big hole of the cam gear .

( b ) The two small holes of the cam gear will be flush with the turpet cover seat on the head, the cam lobes are free.

3. The valve clearance

( a ) The Intake valve 0.05 mm

( b ) The Exhaust valve 0.05 mm

Thanks again! Would anyone know what my Kazuma is by these numbers on the engine? #05050887 ans VIN # 095100956. There was a vin code look up at one time but oxidized black. Its not running yet - I need to find time to get working on it. Thanks for your help

You might be missing a switch or something. Underneath the gas tank there's a lever for the gas and on the carb theres a lever for the gas. Make sure both of those aren't keeping the gas from the carb.

Also, mine was having a hard time starting as well, and I think it was the carb. I put a special cleaner int he gas and I think it knocked loose some crap. So im cleaning the carb to see it thats the problem. If I cant clean the carb im buying a new one.

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.

      Hello everyone! I recently purchased this quad for a mere 300.00 and it is pretty clean for the year. I bought it from a guy who bought it in a storage unit. He didn’t know anything about it. I got it home and noticed it did not have an ignition coil for the spark plug. I bought the ignition coil, a new battery, new CDI box, new starter relay, new safety neutral relay, new carb and so on... I got it to turn over, but when I pull the plug and check for spark I have nothing.. it has a non factory starter button that works when I push it and turns the engine over no matter if the key or stop switch is on or off..not sure what that’s all about, but it does turn over..just no spark at the plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks

      I have a 2008 loncin desert storm that wont stay running.
      When it ran it ran rough and backfired a lot.
      Now it will only start with throttle and there's a lot of unburned fuel (white smoke), there's also compression comming out the airbox. Is it the carburetor that is broken?
