Here are a few things to check:
The air filter. If it is dirty, replace with a new one. Also make sure nothing is obstructing the inlet to the air filter.
Valve tappet clearances. Over time, the tappet clearance will diminish and affect performance.
The drive belt and pullys. Make sure there's no contamination on the belt or pullys that could cause slippage (oil, grease, anitifreeze, etc.). Also check that the pully faces move correctly with engine RPM and road speed. If one of the moveable faces is stuck, this will negatively affect the engine RMP to road speed.
Finally, if it has ever sat for a long period of time (a year more more) consider having the carburetor cleaned out.

Starts and runs but will only go 25 top end and 10 going up a hill. I cleaned carb, and changed plug. Filter good. Any help about how what to try next?

Dennis, Write up found in scooter link below.This scooter was restricted to 25mph via a series of restrictions to the variator, ECU, intake and camshaft. 2009 was the last model year for this CHF50 in Canada and the USA, although this scooter was available for a few years after this due to excess inventory from the 2009 crash of the scooter market.
You can have it modified at a shop probably $$.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Heartway power wheelchair chirps and blinks red button in "key" location as if locked. It will not do anything else. Them after a while it chirps and the flashing red light turns off.

some chairs have a magnetic key, if yours is one of these, try using a standard magnet, you may find the key you have has become de-magnetised. a standard magnet should unlock it.

How do i derestrict my lifan s-ray 50cc 4-stroke scooter please? forgot to add its a honda based engine and its a 59 plate thanks

Unless you find a small "restricting washer" between the head and the exhaust pipe...Then usually there is no easy means. In the past these "washers" were put in place to reduce performance, the idea was as the riders skills improve the washer can be removed. It also was a way for parents to keep their children from zooming flat out everywhere.

Honda *** scooter, over heat

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To my knowledge, there would only be a couple of reasons why a 2 stroke engine would overheat:
  • insufficient 2T oil, low pressure on the oil pump, restricted oil tube/hose, clogged/blocked oil injector in the carb;
  • too high a compression ratio, if the new piston is dome, oversized or the cylinder head has been shaved too much;
  • brakes partially engaged;
  • drive belt slipping;
  • clutch slipping.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
