Hello,

My dad was drunk and was reving my engine and holding the throttle on full blast for about 2 hours yesterday and wouldn’t leave my bike alone no matter what I pleaded to him and now I’m wondering if he’s messed it up or if it’s just coincidence that it’s having problems starting today. Could he have caused damage? I’m new to dirt biking so idk these things yet lol.

I have cleaned the carb, changed the oil, new gas, batteries charged.
Thanks for any help.

What kind of bike is it? Probably overheating would be the common problem with throttle abuse.

Oh, it would take MANY hours of abuse to harm a TTR.

I assume it cranks but doesn't fire?
Have you checked for spark?
DId you set the float while you were in the carburetor?

Ditto.....
Have you ever cleaned a motorcycle carb before? Are you sure it went back together properly and is installed properly?
 
Please excuse the guy's . Just because you are a girl does not mean you can't do it .. check spark , replace plug . First .... then , check for compression . Remove plug . Put finger over plug hole and crank . It should blow your finger off hole .. if it doesn't , it may have a bent valve ....

Thankyou! I’ve worked on atv’s, snowmobiles, trucks, lawnmowers and snowblowers my whole life lol. So your right just because I’m a girl doesn’t mean I can’t do it and it’s tiring people assuming that lol. On the plus side though I got my bike running!!
