Sounds like a clogged main jet in carburetor, requires dissassembly and cleaning; or water in carb: drain carb at drain screw located on bottom of carburetor; or due to age you have an air leak caused by rotten rubber parts ie; vacuum hoses, rubber carb mounting boot etc... You can spray around these areas with aerasol carb cleaner while idling to locate the leak. engine will die when leak is found.

SOURCE: honda *** scooter not moved for 3 years new

Have you removed the carby and removed the jets and cleaned them? also is the compression OK? Is the exhaust blocked...Try loosening off the 2 10mm nuts at the cly that holds the exhaust pipe, drop the pipe down a little and try for power. if its better the mufler is blocked..the outlet could have a nest in it or carbon and rust has blocked it.You can cut them open and clean them, but must have the tools and know how...

More than likely, the idle (pilot) jet is partially clogged. This is common when it will idle fine with the choke on, but won't idle without it. Sometimes a fuel treatment will clean the carburator, but not usually successful in cleaning the idle jet. Usually it requires removing the carburator bowl and and cleaning with the use of a gauge wire. The idle jet is usually recessed (next to the main jet).

A good video to show a generic carburator rebuild can be found at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exa467_eoXw The guy goes through a pretty detailed description while going throught the process. The carburator will not look exactly like yours, but it will be similar internally.

Sounds like you might have something stuck in the float (in the carburetor). The electric choke is only needed for starting. (Meaning, you don't have to keep twisting the throttle to get it to start)

Setting Idle Speed


Sorry but you need a taco to set the high free load running, if you excede the maximum revs you run the risk of seizing the engine.

My yamaha 50cc moped struggles for power on a cold start,what could the problem be


Hi, Rachel797 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

Sometimes cant idle


i will recomend you to clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner, just buy some at auto parts remove the hose on top on carburetor and keep the rpm arrownd 2500 and keep ading the cleaner to the inside of carburetor, if you add too much it might backfire just keep you face away from the carburetor good luck and let me know
