Drain the fuel tank and fill it with gasoline. Use ethanol if it is available, the alcohol will combine with any remaining water and allow it to be burned and removed from your system.

I am having a problem with my 2012 Skyline 26SS travel trailer. Hot water coming out of both hot and cold facet. Hot water runs out fast in either valve.

sounds like previous owner did not do the plumbing correctly, 'no kidding' he says.
troubleshoot each line at the hot water tank and cold water tank. and look again for a bypass valve. ours is under the kitchen sink on the back of the hot water tank

No ICE or Chilled water

The water line is fine (what about water inside that line). Please check the source of the water line, I am sure when the previous used it they might have shut the water valve somewhere. Check your basement for that small valve etc.

My italjet f50 sheared a bearing in the gearbox i stripped and replaced the bearing but when i removed the side casing there was no oil in it cant find where the oil goes thanks

The left side casing should not have oil in it. The bearing gets lubricated by the fuel/oil mixture in the crankcase. Please rate my answer.

Yamaha Neos 50cc water in carb

water from an air filter will not get into the carby bowl to block the jets
water in a carby comes from the fuel tank
if you are using e-mix fuel change to straight petrol as the ethanol in the fuel attracts water out of the atmosphere or the pump where you get the fuel has a water problem in the storage tank
next add methylated spirits ( around 20mm to a gallon) to the fuel tank to break down any water so that t it can go through the carby and be burnt in the combustion process best fix is to remove the tank and have it properly cleaned out, clean the fuel filter , have the carby properly overhauled and get the fuel from a different servo

My scooter won't start:(

Hi I am Vortash sounds like you may have got some contaminated fuel .. ( water in fuel ) empty your tank of old fuel completely .. take your spark plug out and kick start the bike repeatedly to clear the fuel out of the system if you have a carb bowl drain screw open it and drain the old fuel out leave the spark plug out and let it stand for half hour or direct a hairdryer down the plug to evaporate any excess fuel that may be in the crankcase sump . Refill with fresh fuel and try again with a new spark plug . hopefully that should cure your problem .. regards Vortash

I have recently bought a 2007 Italjet Torpedo 125 scooter and wondered what the routine maintenance schedule would be for this machine. Can you help please? Thank you. **** Brown

Do yourself a favor. Ride to a dealership and ask if they would go over the recommended owner maintenance with you. Have them show you how to do an oil change, spark plug change, set the idle speed, add water to the battery, clean the air filter, check the fuses, change headlight bulbs, and lube the scooter. Purchase lubricants, oil, and spark plug from them. Make friends with the dealer. Ask questions; how often?, what quantity?, how do I measure that?, what tells me I need to bring the scooter in for maintenance or repairs? A good dealer will be happy to show you knowing you will get parts and supplies from them as well as have them do any major repairs.

Please take a moment to rate this answer. Thanks!

Scooter won't start

Chances are the battery has never been replaced. You could replace the battery or get a 1 or 2 amp battery charger and try to charge the old battery. DO NOT go over 2 amps when charging. I would buy the charger before I bought a new battery. Saving the old battery is worth a shot. If the battery won't take a charge, at least you now have a charger for when you need it. Be sure water covers the top of each cell in the battery before charging.

I am unfamiliar with your specific bike but if it has a kick starter, it should be on the right side of the gear box near the back and close to the foot rest. It could be that your scooter does not have a kick start but has an electric start instead. Fix the battery problem then put the engine in neutral and press the buttons on the handlebars. One of them is likely to be the start button.

Two final thoughts. First, go to a dealer that sells Torpedo scooters and ask questions on how the scooter operates and user maintenance you should be doing while you own it. Get and read an owners manual. Second, in a safe area, practice emergency stops. Imagine a car pulls out in front of you and then brake quickly to avoid an accident. Do this for an hour. Now when something happens you will automaticly react instead of having hesitation by having to think, " Now where is the brake on this bike? ".

Please rate this solution as "FixYa" if I have answered your questions. Thanks!
