Electric Start Issues

My buddy just took off his carb and rejetted, after putting everything back together, the electric start does won't work on a fully charged battery.  When the bike is kick started, the headlight is extremly bright and the tail light flickers fast. does anyone no what could be the problem?

Sounds like the regulator/rectifier is shot, but double check the wiring.   From your description, it sounds like AC current is making it through to the DC side.

And when you check the wiring, besides making sure everything is plugged in tight, I'd especially look for frayed wires.  Assuming he had the subframe up to get the carb out?

 

Look for a problem there where the wires got bent.
