How To Adjust The Idle On A 50cc Scooter




What do you think about this video?

Toby Rose: lol

Doug Cardinale: you are a terrible instructor. You are mumbling, shaking the camera, unprepared and sloppy. Don't quit your day job!

New Scooters 4 Less: We generally recommend filling up with premium 93 octane fuel and avoiding Kangaroo gas stations, their fuel contains high levels of water which can damage your scooter. If you can find ethanol free gasoline in your area, it's the best! 

daniel selbe: get the high octane from reputable gas stations ONLY. And stp fuel/carb/carbon cleaner into gas also BIG HELP

Honda Nutta: Dragolian:- your battery is freakED.

mike hunt: my suzuki sj50 had the sam prob, adjust the fuel/air screw and it idle's allot better. allot harder to kick over tho

TheTrharrison: i have an suzuki sj50qt and it starts fine revs well ill drive in down the street it begins to choke out a little and when i stop it idels very low and cuts out after a while even if im trying to give it gas do you believe this will fix the problem

Unphazeable: check the gas..mines was making a chirp sound..everytime u hear it its ethier low on gas or the gas is bad and u need to replace it.

housedadtrains: firts ide clean the air filter or re new. then change the engine and gearbox oil.do basic servicing.

ilussion32: what maufacter is tha scooter from

Dan Swift: You have 3618 miles on that thing have you ever adjusted the valves? this needs to be done every 1 thousand miles

Zachary Graham: and you are idling to high just saying..

TheTrharrison: true. i got mine off my brother who moved away and had to get the carb replaced so im hoping this fixes it cant afford to loose my cash

warezvz: the idle is higher when you start it is because the choke is on. You adjust your idle when your bike is warmed up (after driving for like 3-5 minutes) then adjust it to 1800rpm. If you others dont have a rpm meter its a easy trick to do. Adjust it so high that its not shaking (you see it on your mirrors, and not so hight that the rear wheel spins) so fo it right. =) have fun

apricotsnms516: @lankysamboy94 From what i know... The slack (Or "free play") in the throttle handle, is adjusted by an adjuster for this problem. The adjuster's lodaction will vary from scooter to scooter. Although it will commonly be on the throttle cable. it should look like a screw, with one small, and long screw nuts. To shorten the free play, screw the long nut counter-clockwise, then tighten it down with the short nut. Again, it will vary from scooter to scooter. But generally it's what i stated above.

Matthew Browne: Hey I have a motor scooter 49cc and it like it's not getting fuel or enough air when I press on the gas it dies and takes forever to pick up speed how do I fix the problem.

apricotsnms516: @lankysamboy94 so what sound does it make when trying to start? and does it start with the back wheel up off the ground?

zeuz17919: cheak your bracks first but it sounds like you fuel regualtor is off not the idle

taktica dj: hey bro i see your vid on the scooter and i just wanna know if you still have the manual for it and if u can see what is the right size for valvle calibration thank you so much or if some one know guys cuz i try .004 for both but still not work is start for a seconds but is go die again

dsi19961: i need evaporative system on the vip scooter/ Chinese tank scooter

apricotsnms516: Actually a pile of crap is a lot mushier, and doesn't contain any kind of metallic material, usually. Although it is kind of a slow poorly built scooter. The verdict would definitely be: Buy an older Honda.

mzali adel: nice

apricotsnms516: @ilussion32 Sunl.

apricotsnms516: @TehNerdGaming hmm does the kick start work? does it run at all? do the lights (blinkers, tail light) work when you turn the key one the "ON" position? did you make sure you did the starting procedure correctly? let me know and i'll try to help a little more :)

funnybone16: @NobbysPcHelp ya but i just change it back when i go on the road im thinking on making a cable or some sort of thing so i can change it without getting into the seat

iskandar Pedash: thanks a lot

Samo B: my bike keeps dieing when i stop at a roundabout or at a stop light. i have adjusted the valves and the idle but the back wheel will not spin or get to the point where it will spin at all.

apricotsnms516: @DJTAKTICA I believe .004 is correct, you might want to start looking into other things. Does it have any other symptoms?

uptowndisco2: It sounds like it has dirt in one of the carb jets, you may need to strip and clean to get an even tick over speed, but try running a carb cleaner through the fuel system for a tank or so , see if it helps.

Nashon White: Hi I have that same scooter but mine wont start I try charge it but it still did not work .. Can u help me with that

apricotsnms516: They're somewhat common if you look around, just get the engine number (QMB GY6) and look around for some parts. I get my stock parts (non performance) from parts for scooters. I know MRP sells aftermarket parts, but you have to go through a dealer last time I checked.

captinmax12309: mine says forever lpg 55

apricotsnms516: It might, mine had the same problem and that's why I did the video, but I don't think it fixed it. Seemed like it just got better after a while, typical Chinese scooter for ya.

apricotsnms516: @sambeale94 from experience it should make a nice low hum and not be vibrating too much. also you gotta wait till it warms up before you adjust it and that should be just a nice neighborhood run.

hvacrdude1: @6cody91 i believe ur right, have the same issue with mine... im going to order one now.

webber grill: xXCSDTIGERXx need a valve adjustment

Babs Tallant: Could you please tell me how to get my back tire to stop spinning? (49 cc scooter) I have adjusted the idle as low as possible but it still spins slowly and it does not want to roll backwards.

warezvz: i did a vid about cleaning the carb so check it out. Im just uploading it

vorkev1: it starts with higher rpm cus of the auto choke when choke shuts off you will then be in normal operation this is also wi thay tell you to let you bike sit a few minits to worm up that and so the oil can warm up to flow better

HolyGrunt92: Thank you captain obvious. I appreciate the video, but holy cow, I know how to read "future champion," I just wanted to know where the Idle adjustment screw is at on my carburetor. Again thank you for the video.

matthew pownall: hi mate I have the 125cc version of this bike and I am looking for parts like a new exhaust and I am having trouble finding one can you help me I am from the UK

Jerred Neal: needle

apricotsnms516: Small meaning the bike itself feels small to ride? Well, sorta! It is a small bike, and I'm nearing 6'2". Especially compared to my CR250 it feels "small". I can't even turn it all the way without moving my knees haha. But I don't quite understand your question? Is it a concern you are addressing? Or are you just curios?

apricotsnms516: @HolyGrunt92 your welcome? it was one of my first uploads...

FuZeDRock: @MrDartplayer27 With a few tweeks you get that up a lot. I have my son's Peugeot Speedfight 2 50cc upto 50mph. 2 things you might want to look into for free is removing the Variator restrictor, you'll find plenty of youtubes on this. Also your exhaust may be retricted at the down pipe where it joins the manifold. Take it off and see if there is a piece of metal welded inside that makes the pipe diameter smaller, knock this out. You will need to adjust the carb after. Good luck!

Gary Mijangos: Educational video ; I learned how to adjust the idle on my scooter ; thank you ; good video.

SeenOnTvStore: Just wanted to say thank you so much for your video!! Scooter was dying everytime I let go of the throttle and I can't imagine what it would have cost if I brought it somewhere. A simple tweak with a screw driver and the scooter runs perfectly. THANKS!

apricotsnms516: @lankysamboy94 Hmm, the top speed (indicated) was 50+MPH, that's where the speedo topped out lol. Of course, the speedo was wrong by a few MPHs. So I would guess about 40 - 42MPH? And the only thing I've done to it (performance wise) is stick a uni filter on the intake. Which does have a noticeable power increase. Thanks for the comment! :-)

Jeff Hart: thanks for this vid!

apricotsnms516: Guys, thanks for the views and I hope it helps (or has helped) someone out there (as bad as it is). But I made this video 3 years ago and can barely remember what happened or what fixed it. I can try to help but after spending most of my time on my CR250 I'm a little rusty when it comes to small bore auto-choke 4-strokes. Peace out and good luck.
