Question about 2007 Sym Mio 50

1 Answer

I purchased a SYM MIO 50 new on July 3,2010 for my wife. It's a 2009 model and she has only driven it approximately 50 miles since she received it. We stored it in our garage last winter and yesterday when we took it out , refuled it with fresh fuel and attempted to start it it will not run. The unit does not appear to have any type of manual choke and when attempting to start it will run for a few seconds and then stall. The manual that came with it is very limited and not very well illistrated so much that I can't even locate the spark plug. I believe that it came with a two year warranty but before taking it back to the dealer I was hoping that you may have some suggestions. I would greatly appreciate any assistance that you can provide me. Thank you , Joe Gulick Scotland Connecticut.

Normal warranty is only 90 days. Better chcek on what yours actually is and what it covers. The problem is going to be either water in the carb float bowl or varnish build up in the carb from evaporating gas over the winter. The carb needs to be cleaned. Try just draining the carb float bowl using the drain screw on the lower part of the bowl. Most all bikes have a drain screw but if yours doesn't, just remove the bowl and clean the interior of the carb. Please rate my answer.

    Mr. Gulick, there is no charge for the FixYa service. FixYa does offer some "priority" service answers for a $120 to $15 charge but if the customer doesn't think they got the help needed there is no charge. I answer questions on motorcycles for free. I have answered 3239 questions in the last two years and all my answers are free. My rating as a Guru is 96%. In today's society I can understand where you are concerned referencing an "account." Rest assured that no bill will EVER be sent to you. I just hope that my answer was helpful in solving your carburetor problem. I am a retired bike mechanic and do not get paid by the user or by FixYa. I give the answers to help others and enjoy the ratings from them. By the way, could you rate my answer? Thanks.... Blessings, Tombones49

    OOPS! I had a typo in my reply. Priority answers are $10 to $15, not the $120 posted. :- )

Sym mio 50 is starting then cutting out for about ten minutes then when warm it runs fine I have replaced the carb this has not made any difference please help

Definetly an air leak, I believe what is happening is where the inlet manifold joins the cylinder it has a poor joint which when cold is contracted and when engine heats up the joint expands with the heat,sealing the leak, ie causing the fuel/air mixture to become rich enough for scoot to run.
