Hi All
I am a New rider and have a 125cc Lifan hongda Skygo. (honda engine)
I was riding home from work this morning and with half a mile to go, she becomes VERY Jumpy and slowed to a stop.
I decided to pull over before she completley died on me, turned the engine off and let her stand for a couple of mins,
When i tried to kick her up, there was nothing.
I waited another 10/15 mins and eventually (with alit of fiddling) realised i could get her home whilst leaving the chokes on (on the left handle bar)
Please if you reply, make it VERY VERY simple because i know nothing about engines lol. Pirate
Thank you guys xx Laugh

It sounds like you may have a dirty carb and something is partially obstructing your primary jet. If you know nothing about these parts you will need to have a pro go through it. Should be an easy task for any decent bike tech to fix and get you back riding.

Thanks for the heads up. i will be calling out a teck to take a look at it coz i dont have a trailer or anything to move it,
Once i get reves on it, it sorta chokes its self. and to many reves makes the engine die totally.

its because the restriction isn't allowing the needed amount of fuel. When it can't deliver enough fuel it dies.

Check inside the tank too. The dirt didn't get into the fuel by magic.
