You may want to perform a full oil change and go again. In the process. Could your battery have a low charge or need water? If the scooter cranks. Also try to kick start manually? To over fill oil is not symptomatic; unless back pressure has built up for another reason.
make sure battery cables are secure at battery terminals and clean.how old are the batteries.If the batteries run down fast they are no good.a good way to test them is put scooter against some thing solid and go forward.If the battery indicator drops to o the batteries are no good.It takes about 10 hours to charge the batteries
I hope ya give yer cousin a slap or l will.
Fill it up with fresh oil and slap yer cousin again then just turn the engine over without the motor going to lube up all the cogs and gears inside for a few turns of the engine, then it should start up.
you should first do a full inspection before you try to get it running. If this is the case, I'd do a compression check first because it's easy to do. First, check the quantity and condition of the engine oil. Hook up or purchase a good battery. Leave out the spark plug and crank the scooter for ~5 seconds. This helps to circulate the oil. Let it set for ~15 seconds and then do it again. It's not a good idea to continuously crank the starter because it can overheat and wear out prematurely.
Most scooters need a minimum of 100 psi in compression in order to run start and properly. Compression should be checked when the scooter engine is warm. However, that's hard to do if your scooter is not running. So, just hook up a compression gauge and open up the throttle all the way. Crank the scooter until the needle on the compression gauge stops moving. This should take no more than 5 seconds. Very roughly, 100-125 psi is good, 125-150 psi is very good, and 150+ psi is great. If you don't have this level of compression, then you have bad valves and/or bad piston rings. If you want, you can add a teaspoon or so of oil to the engine through the spark plug hole. Then try the compression test again. If compression is higher, then it's likely you have bad rings. The oil will seal the rings and give you better compression. If compression is the same, then you have bad/misadjusted valves.
It is definitely frustrating when you can't get your scooter or moped started. The first thing you'll need to do is to narrow down the problem. In order for your gas scooter to start, it really only needs 3 things:
1. Your scooter needs to spark at the correct time. 2. Your engine needs the proper fuel/air mixture and exhaust flow. 3. You need sufficient engine compression.
Top 9 Reasons Why Your Scooter Won't Start:
1. Try depressing the brake handle when starting. 2. The battery has not been charged. 3. The battery is hooked up wrong. This is often the reason for blown fuses. 4. There isn't enough gas or two-stroke oil in the scooter. 5. There is a gas flow problem, especially on the Euro Scooter or Yamaha models. 6. The spark plug wire is not connected. 7. A low battery or bad relay can cause the scooter to only start by using the kick starter. 8. There is no spark to the spark plug. The coil is bad and needs to be replaced. 9. Turn the key to the "on" position.
Hi, did you charge the batteries for at least 8 hours? Make sure that your charger has a RED Light When you plug it in, You should see Green light in 4-8 hours depending on the Batteries.
Secondly Your scooter batteries were dead when you got the Scooter, Judging from the fact you didn't get a Charger with it. I would recommend getting a voltmeter and checking the battery voltages. If the voltage is 11-12 volts, then you need new batteries. If this doesn't work check that fuse on the scooter it could be blown.
