Initially and based on your description that it has not been used for some time, pls try:

  • check the sparkplug, clean, replace, verify spark;
  • verify any loose connection, wiring;
  • replace/drain stale gas;
  • if it is a two stroke engine, you may need to check that the 2T oil has not seeped to the bottom of the combustion chamber;
  • check/clean the carburetor;
  • verify that when you pull the starter cord, there is counter force; is it engaging the engine. This could be verified by removing the sparkplug and making sure the plug cap/wire is safely kept back, crank the engine (pull the starter cord) while keeping a finger covering the now empty sparkplug hole. If the starter cord is engaging the engine and there is sufficient compression, there would be tremendous pressure exerting on your finger.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought a second hand go-ped, there is no indication of any brand, anything, I need to buy some spare parts, but do know the displacement- probably it is midi goped 41, the spark plug is BM6A. How...

Go-Ped or GoPed is a brand of powered scooter and if it is a Go-Ped brand powered scooter then you should find the word "Go-Ped" on it somewhere. I think on average a Go-Ped will have the Go-Ped brand on it in about 17 different places and would seem unlikely that that all the labels are removed.

I can't get my gas powered scooter to start. The gas seems to be running through fine but it just won't click over to start when I pull on the pull cord.

Sounds like you might need a new spark plug and/or wire. Or too much oil in the gas/oil mixture, or not enough. Could also be a problem with the pull cord, it might be disconnected on the inside.

Hope this helps =)

My scooter starts runs good then dies

Replace the battery, after sometime the battery starts to lose it's initial capacity.

For battery replacement go to, select your scooter model, then click replacement parts and find the batteries on the part list.

My sons goped starts and runs well with no weight on it. As soon as a person starts to ride it, it won't go and sputters. I took the engine off and looked at the clutch, and everything looks OK. Where else...

Sounds to me like you have a direct drive model with no clutch. With the direct drive model you just warm up the motor with no rider and wheel off the ground then turn it off and push start it "push and Go". The trick to push staring is stomping your weight down near the back tire as you push forward to get the rear tire turning. Once it turns so will the motor and it will start and your off and running. Do the push start without applying throttle and make sure you have the rear wheel adjusted against the drive roller correctly..
