    i no that noise lol ummm
    i would have said that the electric start button got stuck in wen it was playing up. i think that theres somthing rong with the battery now my be u drained it since u use it all the time. i all ways use the kick start and i use the elec for emergances lol like wen my kick starter broke and i was a long way from home cuz if i used it all the time it would have been dead and i would have to push. but anyway bac to topic i have a 125cc demon 2 and i got that noise wen i tryed to electric start it will a 12v battery so i would say battery dead
    or that cables have came loose

    I now that everyone here has a different opinion on electric starts, yes they are convenient at times and can make life a little bit easier.But I believe that it is a sign to rip the battery out together with all the wiring that goes with the starter and learn to live with just the kick start.
    As the china bikes that come with the electric start are very unreliable to begin with. Do you want to keep throwing money at it? and what happens if it's not the battery? Just money thrown away.
    This is just my opinion but if you really want the electric start, get the battery tested before you buy another one.

    Ditch the electric start and just run with the kick start You can still hill start It cant you? My lifan hill starts but havent tried my ducar maybe the not start in any gear thing might be a problem when trying a hill start. Electric start bikes seem like the ones not to buy...

    well most ppl have car battery charges just use that and i no i have like 5 battery testers lying around and they r only like 5 -15$ so its worth it rather buying a new battery. OR u could just use the kick start.
    and no these bikes arnt good for hill starts lol. wen i was at black duck valley i got tricked into going on the advance trail ride and it was pritty much vertical at times lol and the bike slid out from me a few times half way up the hill and i would have to go all the way bac to the bottom (whicht was veryhard) just to try again cuz the hills were way to steep to push and they had lose rocks and dirt.

    All the "good" bikes only have kick starters, you dont get motoverts, terramotos or pitster pros with eletric start. A battery and eletric start only add weight and give 2 more things to go wrong, piss it off IMO.
