Hello,
I bought my kids some new mini bikes (http://www.bajamotorsports.net/Mini/mb165.htm) for Christmas but I can't get 2 of them to start. They have Hensim HS168F-2 engines and both seem to have the same problem.

Here is what I know.

Plenty of new gas in the tank.

I have a spark at the plug.

When I pour a little bit of gas in the combustion chamber it starts and runs for about 5 seconds.

The air filter is clean and free of oil.

I am open to your questions and suggestions.

Thanks,
David Mc

My only suggestion would be to take those Chinese Honda knock off junks back to Tractor Supply or whichever store you bought them from and get your $400 back. Give that to your kids and let them get themselves something nice.

Not to knock you, but when you can't even find a local place that is a service dealer for the equipment, you should think twice about buying it.

I mean honestly, this statement on their website "Limited Warranty – 90 Days Engine and Frame" should give you a clue as to what you bought. I'd be ashamed to put my kids (if i had some) on a death trap like that.

Dave is there fuel shut offs on these ,,definate fuel delivery problem,,doubt that its a dirty carb being new,,kink in the fuel line,,,pinched fuel line?????.

Also being new when you got them from the shipper did you put oil in them,,,may have a enternal fuel shut off for low oil.

If it starts and runs off gas poured down the cylinder.... its not a safety switch or anything of that sort....
Its a fuel delivery problem.... make sure gas is getting the carb from the gastank (take line off... let it flow into a container and watch for a good steady flow)
This is a Chinese knockoff.... so quality isn't there.... but does it have any adjustments to be made to the carb? is the carb on tight?

Actually, when you are a dealer you have the upper hand in knowing about these imitations.

The fuel valve lever is located right under the choke lever. Best to read operators manual before using. Are these really Chinese? It has Homelite on the motor cover.

The boy across the street has one of these mini bikes and he gives it holy H. It just keeps running and running like energizer bunny. By the way they are a quality looking piece of equipment.
