The thing with two strokes is that they smoke a bit under normal operation, and they smoke like mad if they haven't really been run for a period of time, I would advise you to run it for a while and see if that helps.

You should not need to adjust the mixture settings at all.

Hope this helps

Hi! My scooter stood all winter with the same gas, It was running fine, but I added more gas when it got low and now it dies, It is like the new gas stirred up the gunk from the old gaAs, I just need...

Since it sat all winter, I recommend a can of SeaFoam be put in the fuel tank with whatever fuel is in the tank. Start the engine and while it is in neutral, run engine at a high idle for a few minutes then let it set for a couple hours. Repeat the high idle running sever times, then ride it normally. It should clean up the carb and the gum in the filter.

My Vespa LX50 won't start.Some days I've been trying for an hour and nothing happens, I've tried kickstart and start button and nothing. I have been to 3 workshops and they cannot identify the problem....


I have had the same problem with my LX 50. You have to make sure you turn it on often to keep it in good shape. I didn't turn it on for a long time during the winter and it didn't wanna start in the spring. I bought a fluid that you put in the gas tank that cleans off the insides when the gasoline runs through. I have to double check what fluid it was. But it worked and now it turns on.

Can't get Keeway ARN to start

If you did not prep the bike for winter storage with Sta-Bil in your gas you might have some clogged carb problems You say this is a scooter but the description at top calls it a motorcycle. If it's a scoot then your engine and carb are underneath all that plastic your sittin' on.If it's a motorcycle your carb is right behind the engine between ur legs. It has a rubber gas line connected to it. Get some starter fluid from your local auto parts store and spray a short burst into the air cleaner and then hit the starter button. It should start but if it won't sit there and idle youv'e got a plugged card idle jet...time for a year prep the bike and disconnect the battery and you won't have to buy a new one....Good Luck !!
