Customer Question

My 125cc scooter will not start what could be the cause?
I was driving and felt some intermitant power loss, and then it just died. I have checked the fuel and carbuerator, they are fine. The spark plug does not seem to get any fire at all. The bike is new, only 170 miles. It turns over fine, it just wont start. All of the electronics work - lights, horn, etc.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Is this a Chinese scooter with a GY-6 engine? Have you used an ignition tester yet to determine if the plug is or isn't firing? Thanks, PK.
