Yes, but wouldn't it be better to have it work? Get a knowledgeable biker or mechanic to work out what goes where. I can't imagine its that difficult for someone with mechanical bias.

SOURCE: 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!

If it is just the kick arm, that is simple. If the shaft that it connects to is bent, this is very difficult to access. Please have your Honda Shop take a look at it. If the electric works, you might want to consider using it that way. If there is internal damage, it might not be worth repairing this 10 year old scooter.

How do i start my scooter with no key and no kickstart


No key?
You would need to hotwire the ignition. If you got caught with a hotwired bike the cops would start to ask hard questions.

No Kick start?
If it has a manual clutch you can turn the ignition on put it into second gear run push the bike up to running speed jump on it and release the clutch quickly to engage the engine.If its a centrifugal clutch (twist and go!) you cant bump start it.

But reading your question, I would ask whether you scooter is road worthy. Running and jumping on a moving bike with live electrical cables hanging out of it in a fuel rich environment is probably not a good idea!

It will not start by the ignition but starts after few kickstart


When you kick start a motorcycle or scooter, the motor turns over much faster than your electric starter can turn it over, even with a new battery.
I saw this before with several brands of scooters and the problem was solved by making sure you have clean battery terminals, and a fully charged good battery.
Some batteries will take a full charge but cant take a load. So your battery may seem good because it has 12+ volts, but when you try to start it it drops below 10-11 volts.
Most local auto parts stores can put a load test on your battery for free. If you purchase a new one, make sure it is the one called for for your scooter.

I have a piaggio typhoon 50 cc (1999) it starts on the kickstart and ticks over but dies when you try and rev it,It wont fire on the electric start but turns over fine.The carb is clean and the fuel...


Hi, Steviethemas before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

The electric starts are very hit and miss. Probably why they still came fitted with a kickstart. It's more reliable !
