Year-old fuel? I'd start with syphoning that out and putting in some new gas. Maybe spray some carb cleaner and starter fluid in the carbs (unless it's fuel injected? - I'll bet it's not.) You may have to eventually need to pull 'em out and clean 'em. usually involves sticking a piece of thin wire through some jet you pull out. Compressed air from a compressor would be handy. Again, start with the fresh gas.

SOURCE: I went to start my scooter and had a dead battery.

Probably the regulator is faulty and leaking the battery power away.

1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.

Have an e100 razor electric scooter. it has not been used since I bought for a couple of years. I got a new e100 charger and tried to charge but I noticed that the charger's does not activate either red...


Most equipment running on rechargeable batteries have one thing in common: if you let the battery sit there for long periods of time without recharging, the charger is not made to bring the battery back up to spec. The battery pack, if it is still good, needs a "kick" or "boost" from some other strong supply to get it started.
The other solution would be to replace the battery pack all together. If you have a friend with a similar scooter, you can try your new charger on his scooter to see if it works. Hope this helps!

2003 Derbi Red Bullet won't start


Hi, Marshal if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will not idle unless the choke is full on and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging the battery remove the leads and let it sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a voltmeter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank if it rusty there is a cheap and easy fix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUYr_7SwGms
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil-soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a "CARB DIP" or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Check intake manifold and seals for leaks and craks.
8. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
9. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

Why won't my 98 tahoe start after it was sitting for a year? i bought a new battery so that is not it.


Did you put stablizer in the gas before storing it? Does the fuel pump run for 2 seconds when the ign is turned ? Have you checked the air cleaner for debris? Do you have spark? You must have air/fuel/spark to start.

Scooter sat for a year; wouldn't start; replaced battery. filled with gas. cleaned spark plug. won't start. Help


after a year sitting idle chances are that the gas inside the carb has degraded and the carb will need cleaning also when you filled the tank did you remove any old fuel? if not the its contaminated with the old gas
give it a full service new feul clean carb clean air filter then it should start

hope this helps

Most scooters need the rear brake lever holding in for the starter motor to work. If it is not as simple as this the carb may require cleaning out as the bike has stood for some time.
