Vespa P150X Piaggio won't start

We have a Vespa P150X (1978) that has run like true love until last week. We kick started it and it started immediately, but we let it die before it was idling properly; after that ... well, it wouldn't start. We tried everything, from checking and changing the spark plugs, checking the fuel flow, the points - and all seems fine. But, no matter what we do - it just won't start. It sounds like it wants to ... to the point that it even backfires - but nothing. Any suggestions?

I think it is the CDI-box (at the top end of engine) not working.
check the connectors (pull the rubber cover)

2007 Piaggio Fly 50 intermittent hard starting


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check 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 if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Faulty fuel pump.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
11. Enricher valve inoperative.
12. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
13. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
14. Faulty ignition coil.
15. Valves sticking.

All Vespa's old or new run without need of lead as your engine internals are lubricated by either the gear oil or 2 stroke oil.

Gas overfill - Vespa LX50 won't start


It is unlikely that being unable to start is caused by overfilling the tank.

Remove the spark plug, clean it with a wire brush, and check for a spark. Turn the ignition on, put the spark plug and lead attached against the cylinder head and kick it over. You should have a fat blue spark under the electrode. Check the gap and replace the plug.

Another thing you can check for is either a pinch or an airlock in the fuel line to the carburetor.

I have a 09 Piaggio Fly 50. When I bought it, the battery was run down from lack of use and extreme cold (I used to live in the Rockies). I could never start it from the starter button, but always with a...


Hi, Jkranowitz 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 or starter 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.
