RollingWrench: I'm glad you mentioned this. It is rare to see scooters with a kick stand
switch. But that will throw you for a loop of you dont know about it.
Korky Da Cat: I took my scooter to a scientist and he diagnosed the fault as lack of
protons in the nucleus , he reckons i bought a battery full of split atoms
He said the electrons needed to power my ignition are at zero charge and
nothing can be done until somebody puts the protons back into the nucleus
because the electrons wont charge without them.
Either that or get a new battery
TheTopGhia: What if you buy a kit of parts, fit them all ( in the process throwing out
perfectly good working components) just to find that the spark plug was
loose or worn out?
No Spark.... Check the plug first! then work backwards. Don't let these
guys sell you parts you don't need.
Any good Mechanic should have a multimeter in their toolbox and know how to
test electrical components with it to find the one at fault, Throwing out
all the parts to fit new ones is a cop out.
robert anderson: I have a 2002 ET4 Vespa 150 and a WEAK spark at plug wire. Very Weak
spark Can you help?? only has 670 miles like new scooter.
Arthur Bradley: SMART CAR? SEE- I`M SMART.
Jency Villalona: I'm 13 and I learned how to drive back one of these in Dominican republic
and it was easy
Guy J Mitchell: PROBLEM: I NEED HELP PLEASE....I have a Kinroad 125cc T-8 Chinese Scooter
with a GY6 Motor. I recently removed the Air Filter box for cleaning. When
re-assembling the box back to the scooter I noticed a Black Rubber Tube
attached to the very Front of the Engine Casing. I think its the Valves
Cover. The opposite end of the Tube was not connected to anything. I can
not remember if I removed this Tube when I removed the Filter Box. So now I
am not sure where the other end of this tubing should connect to. Does it
connect to the underside of the Air Filter Box somewhere or is it just left
to hang down wards? At the unconnected end of the Tube, there is a Tube
Clip, which makes me think it should or pushed on to something somewhere...
but I am not sure. Please Help Someone..... Thanks Folks. Guy J.
Arthur Bradley: WHAT KIND OF CAR?
Semaj Maxwell: Get information! So useful! I have had 2 of the same scooter and didn't
know what was wrong with them. Now I know! Thanks!
Rev0luti0nary0ne: Can you tell me what toolbox you have in the back of the truck? I love the
James Carter: Will the stator give off a weak spark to the coil..took the wire of and the
spark is weak...would that keep it from starting
SONYJEEPCJ7: Hi bro.i have a question.Let me explain to you with my words because i
speak a little be English .i have a scooter 50cc with 2900 miles but for
example when i stop in a light with a RED LIGHT the engine runs very low
until he died .Do you think that maybe the automatic choke in the carb is
jefferson adams: i have a 150cc GY6 Chinese that didn't start, I change all new CDI ,
IGNITION COIL, STATOR AND a 8 pole FLY WHEEL had a 5 pole BUT still I
COULDN'T make it START i HAD A GREAT SPARK BUT still WONT START ?... am a
great mechanic work on engines all the time but i couldn't figure this out
until i check the timing i took off the chain cover put the fly wheel on
TDC corrected my cam and chain put everything back and adjusted the valves
and WOW it fired right up ... if you have the same problems like i did then
do like i did . hope it works for you ,..
markshannon Walker: i have a 50cc moped and not getting any spark from the cdi its also been
put in a garadge and there saying that its not getting spark atall
ProfessionalDad: Well done. thanks!
Shawn Wilkinson: Just purchased acused Chinese 150cc cpi atv. It wont start from the switch.
No power to the lights. I was able to kick start for a few secinds but then
it shut off. I tested with a multi meter at the got 12.5.. no clues why it
wont start wuth switch. New to these small engines
steve wilson: i have a vento zip R3 that my buddy was riding and my other friend pushed
the remote alarm button and the scooter died and wont start. is there a way
to reset the alarm system. it has no kill switch or kick stand sensor.
Michael Gilboy: hi, would you be able to send this package to me , anyway ? do you have a
website were I can purchase this?
Hector Vega: hey men i buy all that and the scooter start one time when i try to start
the second time the 15amp fuse was melted i put the spear one and melted to
what should i do ?
Danny Arvizu: Thanks for this vid man I have been looking for this for a while
Michael leahcim: I have a direct bike 50 QT 49cc and found that it stopped working i'e no
spark .....problem was the side stand....which kills the engine when you
park....and it kills the engine....but the switch was sticking....a bit of
oiled sorted it....bike has been out of action for months....not any
killirishred: thanks for the video, i replaced my spark plug and coil and still no spark,
i just noticed my kill switch is not working, i can turn the engine over
with the kill switch off, but no spark still.. also i don't feel any fuel
inside the spark plug chamber.
Ronda Mccaskill: my people 50 scooter has weak spark. what could it be?
MR EVERYTHING727: Also I put a brand new carbarator in so that works great. But the ignition
button only works after I charge it I don't know what it can be
John Gossett: PLEASE don't be offended, but...UHH..Dang u look hawtt in those shorts! ;P
Do you workout? How old are you? How do u stay in such great shape?
MR EVERYTHING727: Hello, I have a 2008 50cc Meng Scooter. I just put a brand new battery in
it 2 days ago. The battery is not being charged and its looses power at the
traffic light. Could it be a regulater/rectifier issue is my question?
John Gossett: WOW! What a truly UNIQUE service! I see you use SMART cars, too! I bet that
saves a LOT in overhead, huh? Sure wish u guys were in NE Tenn.! Keep up
the good job, Guys!
Fred Astair: I have replaced the CDI twice, the Spark Plug Wire twice and that stator
coil and magnet once. Also tried multiple spark plugs. Still cannot get
bam6972: yea got a carb and works flawless
TheHeyman1104: Did someone pee in your cereal? You have to realize that the DIY'ers are
not professional mechanics and often cannot afford to take their scooter to
one (That could be why the ride a chinese 50cc gy6). So they look for some
tips on things to look at. This is a great video for someone who doesn't
know but needs to know.
Fred Astair: Hello. I have a Tao Tao 50cc 2011 scooter with 283 miles on it. I bought it
from a guy who only rode it a few times, then put it up for the winter and
couldn't get it to start the next spring. I have replaced the stator coil,
CDI and the spark plug wire. I have tested for spark with 2 different spark
plugs. I do not get any spark, haven't and I've tested it after every
replacement of a part. The lights work. The engine cranks like it wants to
turn over, it just won't.
abel berenguer: Tank you four you reply is a 49cc and I fit on a new 75cc cylinder kit
naraku can I by from you on eBay send me the item number tks BERENGUER
charles mickle: i try a new cdi and no spark do you know anything it could be or i could
try next thanks charlie
Ben Filley: exciter coil 80-800ohm. ig coil primary .2-10ohm, secondary 5k-30kohm
without a resistor cap, 7k-50k with resistor cap. to check the cid box,
check for battery voltage at the box, if it has voltage, and exciter and ig
coil check good, its the cdi. since you cant actually test the cdi, this is
the only way to systematically check to see if its cdi, or something else.
if you dont have minimum of 10.5vdc at the cdi, then you have a wiring
issue, non component related.
Ramona Hendry: Hello, i have a VIP Powermax150cc and im not getting any spark, and i heard
this mention that you sell these items in a kit, and i was wondering how
much would the kit cost, and how would i purchase one?
RollingWrench: if nether the coil or the cdi box are not the problem its probably the
stator. But your very first checks should be making sure all of your wires
on your plugs are perfect and not coming loose. One more think disconnect
the right side control switch. Use the kick starter to see if you have
spark. If you do spark after unplugging the right side switch, you have a
bad kill switch (or you can do a continuity test). Be sure that you do not
a kickstand switch, if you do be sure its up when starting.
Nerfern: Haha on my sym scooter the bolt which holds the stator in was just rolling
around in the stator and mashed it to pieces :L
charles mickle: do you know were i can get a book on a 2012 tao tao so i know what my wire
voltage is so i can test them with a muitimeter
Samuel Davis: I have a honda 86 125 trx i was getting spark but it would not start i
notice the pick up coil was lose i tighten it down now i ,m not getting no
spark help thanks sam.
Fred Astair: My dad and I have tested with his power meter to make sure that the wires
all conduct electricity correctly and they do. We've checked the
connections and they all look fine. The spark plugs are new. I'm going
insane trying to figure out what's wrong with this scooter. I've looked so
many places online and I've tried everything anyone has suggested. Please
charles mickle: i try one more cdi and no spark and i checked the wire harness looks good
could it be the ignition key or is there anything else i could try thanks
SVenegas88: you guys still have the kit? cause i couldn't find it on the site
99Mazar: Where is this "Kit" to buy on your website? I can't find a direct link for
RollingWrench: I can send you a generic Chinese scooter manual in pdf form for $10. There
is not a Tao Tao specific manual available.
RollingWrench: Ben, Thank you for your reply. The huge problem with Chinese scooters is,
Nobody works on them. Trying to get a correct spec for your Chinese year
make and models scooter is almost imposable. If you find a shop that will
actually work on your Chinese scooter you will pay them as much or even
more to diagnose the problem. We work on Chinese scooters professionally
and do not have access to specific specs.We use the parts in the video as
diagnostic tools.I hope this this clears up any questions
bob white: im not sure what the prob. is, so i guess i need the stader-pick up coil,
cdi box, and coil??
shaun reid: If you still don't get a spark most likely that you're starter is weak any
questions give me an email Shaun_Reid_cfc@hotmail.co.uk took me a long time
to get a spark after countless replacements of parts,
RollingWrench: Charles, No this will not effect the ignition spark at all. I think your
testing the volts on a/c switch your meter to d/c. You should have
12.5-13.20 volts on a fully charged battery with out the scooter started.
Once you start the scooter, there are two tests, test the voltage at 1k rpm
and 3k rpm. Both tests should be higher then 12 volts but not exceeding 15
volts, If your scooter over charges (over 15volts) you will blow out
headlights, taillights and your battery.
zvone adzic: how much it costs me to my mail delivery this part ???
BlueWindTv: i wish i could transfer all your brain information into mine
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
