I have a VIP Future Champion which I ride on a daily basis. I can jump it and it will start. But as soon as I shut it off it won't restart. I've tried to kick start it but there seems to be no compression. It has a new battery. Any suggestions would be a great help.

  • I would bet the power leads are not connected properly since you have a new battery. Jan 12 '15 at 17:29
  • Did you have to fill the battery with acid when you purchased it or did the shop do that for you? Dec 18 '15 at 16:43

Try to unplug your spark plug and then kick start it. Watch the tip of the spark plug, if it doesn't make any spark try to replace this spark plug.

  • I tried to kick start it. I can't for some reason. Don't know if its because I'm only 100 obs or if its just super tight. I did take the terminals off the battery and gave them a good scouring with a Brillo pad and got some of the rust off. Which is strange since the battery is only a few months old. Have it on the charger to recondition now. It did fire back up. Thanks for the tips. Turns out I could use a new spark plug. Looks a little burnt
