Question about Go Ped GSR Sport Gas Powered City Scooter

My sons goped starts and runs well with no weight on it. As soon as a person starts to ride it, it won't go and sputters. I took the engine off and looked at the clutch, and everything looks OK. Where else should I start looking? thanks

It could be that the spindle isnt catching the tire , try adjusting your back tire

Sounds to me like you have a direct drive model with no clutch. With the direct drive model you just warm up the motor with no rider and wheel off the ground then turn it off and push start it "push and Go". The trick to push staring is stomping your weight down near the back tire as you push forward to get the rear tire turning. Once it turns so will the motor and it will start and your off and running. Do the push start without applying throttle and make sure you have the rear wheel adjusted against the drive roller correctly..

The GSR Sport DOES have a clutch and the ability to idle, so if your scooter is in fact a Go-ped GSR Sport, like your title says, then you have a different issue.

The Go-ped Sport is a direct drive unit, but the GSR Sport has a Centrifugal clutch, that allows the scooter to idle at a stop.

If the scooter is sputtering, then you probably have a fuel, or spark issue.
The easiest things to troubleshoot are the gas mixture, the carb settings, and the spark plug. The fact that the scooter runs when idling means that the air/fuel mixture is probably incorrect, causing the scooter to run too Rich/Lean and not produce the power at bottom end to propel weight. Try www.gopednation.com and you will find your solution there. Carbs can be tricky to tune, so ask someone on www.gopednation.com how to do it, and you should get a response quickly. :)

Two problems-dont know cause or if related or not. #1 engine backfires,stalls spits hesitate like not getting fuel


This is definitely a carburetor issue... when your rider needs more fuel and air to suffice the engine, it's not getting it. How old is the unit? When is the last time it's had the carburetor removed to he serviced...

Start there....

Sputtering engine while in passing gear


At 150000 miles the plugs start to fail under hard acceleration the higher compression blows out the spark before it ignites the fuel. Random cylinder misfire causes the check engine light to come on. change the plugs!

The engine sputter and dies after running for about 2 minutes.


I had this puzzler too! Turned out the problem is caused by the fuel-bowl needle valve. It may look OK but looks are deceiving. It gets a coating on the tip that causes a poor seal ... poor enough to allow fuel to flood the engine after a short run time. The flooded engine dies, but restarts OK after a delay that clears (cooks off) the excess fuel that flooded/killed the engine. SOLUTION: Remove the needle valve and carefully wipe and clean the tip with a white cloth soaked in solvent (gas is OK). The cloth will show the deposits that cause the problem. Carefully re-install the needle valve and float parts, start the engine, confirm that it runs OK and continuously. Simple fix .... puzzling problem.
