Spark plug change 2006 50cc vespa

- the easiest way is to unmount the rear shock absorber (1 screw at the bottom) and rise the Vespa to reach the spark plug....
this is far better than to reach it from above....

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.

My vespa lx 125 ie is having problems starting, what could this be?

Hi, Josmerriman9 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.

My Vespa LX50 won't start.Some days I've been trying for an hour and nothing happens, I've tried kickstart and start button and nothing. I have been to 3 workshops and they cannot identify the problem....


I have had the same problem with my LX 50. You have to make sure you turn it on often to keep it in good shape. I didn't turn it on for a long time during the winter and it didn't wanna start in the spring. I bought a fluid that you put in the gas tank that cleans off the insides when the gasoline runs through. I have to double check what fluid it was. But it worked and now it turns on.
