comment Methods of diagnosing a non-starting Fiat Uno
Paulster2, the only thing I see @Pip could have expanded on more is where the crankshaft position sensor is. Still, this answer is quite helpful as is, anyway.

comment Why is my motorbike's clutch slipping?
Ive voided the warranty. It was a cash trap. Must service every 3000km or three months. I hardly do 1000km in three months. Every few thousand km something else falls off the warranty. A fellow biker stopped to help yesterday, and suggested I smell the oil. It smells like something, no doubt friction plate, has burnt.

It's cable, and I've adjusted the hell out of it. While waiting for a tow this morning, a fellow biker suggested I smell my oil, and it does indeed smell something like burnt friction plate.

Indeed good advice to use the manufacturer's maintenance schedule, but I am currently unable to find one. It's a poorly supported Chinese import. What gives you the idea I'm trying to cheap out? I asked for advice on what service tasks I should perform, for an 'old fashioned' 250cc bike in general. Nowhere did I ask what to skip or how to save money.

A 'modem'? I've seen capacitors on distributes, but I've never seen anything as electronic as a modem on those old cars.

I am a fairly good DIY mechanic, but I asked here in case such problems, and maybe a common cause, occur frequently with the Uno.
