I agree that it is most likely a failed rectifier.

It is a fuel enricher that adds additional fuel at idle until it warms up and then cuts off the additional fuel. Your stock carburetor uses a manual choke that restricts air until you push it in. Restricting air or adding fuel results in running rich which is needed when cold. The seller is trying t...

Barry is running things now at Buggy Depot. Use the contact information on the trusted dealer list to get hold of him. I was an early customer in 2005 but have not had my Yerf's for almost 10 years now.

Follow Max's video on how to use your meter. Come back with questions after watching it.

Check the two thick wires off the solenoid for continuity. The wire may be broken in the insulation or not crimped properly.

If you can short across the two solenoid lugs and the starter cranks but engaging the solenoid does not, the contacts are fried inside the solenoid.

Max put together a good video on how to wire up an ignition from scratch. There is a little variation in the 250 verses 150 wiring, but his explanations will help you work through that.

We went camping just before two-week travel restriction was put into place. I am part of essential services so still have to work daily and end up visiting my workplace about once a week. The spectrum of how people are acting is wide. Some are in denial and still in close large groups which has caus...

The variator weights control how fast the CVT upshifts. The main contra spring on the clutch pulley controls how fast it downshifts. The three small springs on the clutch arms control engagement speed. My preference is 17gr slider weights, red Malossi contra spring and stock clutch arm springs. This...

The fat part of my Joyner exhaust holds a catalytic converter honeycomb. If yours is the same and clogged or contaminated, it will glow like that. Some guys have been successful ramming a rod through the converter to restore flow while others have cut it out of the header.

A thrust race bearing would not be correct for this application unless the previous owner was putting severe side loads on the axle like continuous donuts or circle and drift track racing.

I have a small syringe for injecting oil or gasoline. It's so old and worn that the gradients cannot be read, but you just need enough to coat the piston rings.

If your valve lash is too tight, you may be getting low compression. Drop a a little bit of oil into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and do another test. If the pressure is higher, you need new rings, piston or cylinder. If the pressure is the same, it is something with your valves or gaske...

Either the rectifier or CDI are blown if you did not melt a wire or connector while running it with a bypassed fuse.

Did you take the pressure reading with the throttle wide open?

We have seen pictures in the past where the shift fork was bent due to people forcing it into gear. I am not sure we hat luck you will have to straighten it out. Look at posts from Sockman and Papa Rich for some good photos and explanation.

If you are willing to work on these, they are best value fun you can have. Even VW rails are getting expensive verses a Joyner.
