    I bought a 2007 speedfight 2 L/C a month ago and after giving it a wash it doesn't start anymore. It tries to start and runs for half a second if I let it sit for a couple of minutes but after the first attempt I get nothing, the carb is clean and almost brand new, all the electronics work, but I haven't taken the spark plug out because I am missing the correct wrench. It also had new piston rings installed a week ago but the compression seems good. This problem has me and a Peugeot speedfight mechanic baffled.

    It's also worth mentioning that it might have overheated due to a coolant leak but I can't be arsed to take the engine apart to see if it has done any damage because it's a massive pain in the arse for me and the last time I took it apart I broke 2 sets of gaskets and a set of piston rings :/

    The mechanic said it could also be the reed valves.

    If anyone had the same problem and could help I would be very thankful :)
