Question about Aprilia Scarabeo 125 Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Scarabeo 150 with 1300 miles. Bought it Dec 2004 at 1200 miles. Don't use it much. When it - after endless tries, starts, it only runs in idle for about 30-60 seconds. Then the engine stops. Throttle action stalls the engine instantly. Not enough fuel for sure. How do I check the fuel pump and fuel valve or could it be another problem (vaccum) The scooter sits unused a lot in my hot FL garage. I do drive it around the block occasionally and I use fresh fuel. Please help. Wilhelm in SW FL

    Thanks for info. Unfortunately I believe I have to dismantle the carburetor. I tried chemicals in the fuel but it does not increase the flow. I have no fuel filter. Thanks a lot.

This is likely a gummed up carb or jet.
The engine dies under load... You can try carb cleaner - but it will need to be torn down to clean properly.
Check the fuel filter as well. It may be clogged up with varnish from sitting gas.
Try to run the scooter about once a month - and use fuel stabilizer to minimize re-contamination.

Manual update for the Scarabeo ABS version


I was having some brake issues but the manual did not have any info on ABS brakes. I e-mailed AF1 Racing (where I bought it). AF1 Racing updated the file on there online store. So if you bought you your manual from them you can log on and download the newest version which has a new chapter for ABS. I haven’t checked the manual for any other updates but it has a print date of April 2005 the old one is September 2003. ,,,
