Hello, I am new to KartPulse and this is my first post…well, question I guess. Anyway, I bought a Maxxam 150cc 2r the other day off a guy for 200 bucks. When I turn the key nothing happens at all. I got a brand new battery in it, and if I cross the solenoid it will turn over but has no spark coming from the spark plug. Now I don’t know if the two issues are related, but I was wondering if I have to have the brake peddle pressed to get the key to work, you know, like a safety feature? right now I have the master cylinder out and a new one is being shipped so I have no brakes to test my theory. I also have the seats out being re-upholstered. Does anyone know if I have to be sitting in the seat, like a lawn mower, or have brake depressed to get it to turn over? And any thoughts as to why it has no spark? The headlights and tail lights don’t come on either. The fuse under the electrical box cover is new. Thank you all for any replies.
