Yamaha Neos 50cc water in carb

Hi I have a Yamaha Neos 50cc scooter. I'm having a problem with it where the engine keeps losing power when I open the throttle. It then cuts out and won't start for a few minutes. I've taken it into a garage for a service and they said the carb was full of water. He cleaned it all and it worked fine for the first few miles but then started again. When I took it back he said there was more water in the carb. He thinks its being sucked in through the air filter. Will changing the filter fix this? I don't want to just keep throwing money at it if its knackered. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

It might be sucking in water from the air filter or worse there is a cracked head some place in the intake of your bike

SOURCE: Engine cutting out when open throttle. YAMAHA NEOS 50cc MOPED

i had a simuler problem with my honda cr 250 moto-x bike it would start fine and you could keep it ticking over with the throttle(i have deliberatly unscrewed the tickover in case i come off,it will cut out) when i got on it,it would go for about 400-500 metres then splutter and die and not start again for around 5 mins. i immediatly knew it was a fueling problem. so after stripping the carb and giving it a good clean out i was baffled when i got back on and it still done the same. i then dismantled the fuel tap cleaned it all out and put it back together and tested it,it was very very slow so i unsrewed my fuel cap a little and was greated with the familur gush it should deliver. problem solved! the vent in my fuel cap had crystalised up,so the fuel was coming out but the air was not getting in,causing a vacuum and slowing down the flow and basically emptying the carb quicker than it can fill back up!!! clean your carb,fuel tap and any vents in your cap or tank. if this does not work then your bike must be over fueling or low on compression.

Hi I own a Yamaha neos 4 and I am wondering if I change the Cdi to a Yamaha vitty 125 CDi will my bike work and run faster ?

Hi, Cameran I seriously doubt it CDI is for spark only a four cycle engine is nothing more than a mechanical air box it sucks in air/fuel and expels it as burnt exhaust the more air/fuel you can stuff in the engine and the faster you can expel it the more power and speed you can make start with a more free flowing air cleaner like a K&N and the same with an exhaust system like Yasuni or a big bore kit for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Yamaha Neos 50cc water in carb

water from an air filter will not get into the carby bowl to block the jets
water in a carby comes from the fuel tank
if you are using e-mix fuel change to straight petrol as the ethanol in the fuel attracts water out of the atmosphere or the pump where you get the fuel has a water problem in the storage tank
next add methylated spirits ( around 20mm to a gallon) to the fuel tank to break down any water so that t it can go through the carby and be burnt in the combustion process best fix is to remove the tank and have it properly cleaned out, clean the fuel filter , have the carby properly overhauled and get the fuel from a different servo
