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. =)
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
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
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.
