HELP Predator 212 Engine Wont Start

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I have a small Azusa Minibike kit that I put a Harbor Freight Predator 212cc engine on and I'm having some issues with the engine.


I had taken some components off it after hearing some strange noises now the rip cord locks up solid when you go to pull it to start the engine.  It is not seized up because when the spark plug is removed it can turn 100% freely. 


You literally lift the bike up when trying to pull on it, it's completely locked up.


Any ideas or has anyone had this/ a similar issue?


Let me know,

Kind Regards

Is the pull start assembly removable like the ones on lawn mower motors? U gotta give us a pic or something to go on, Ive it owned what I know as a minibike in at least 45 years.

What kid of warranty does it have? Can u take it back? I mean harbor freight is not known for being to quality products... tho many of their items function well they're not made for longevity.
