Having problems starting my Kymco 500 it will start with starter fluid added. I put new gas in and once started ran it around to operating temp but soon after you turn it off it will not crank on its own.I think spark is there and if you pull back on throdle while starting it hits some.

Year-old fuel? I'd start with syphoning that out and putting in some new gas. Maybe spray some carb cleaner and starter fluid in the carbs (unless it's fuel injected? - I'll bet it's not.) You may have to eventually need to pull 'em out and clean 'em. usually involves sticking a piece of thin wire through some jet you pull out. Compressed air from a compressor would be handy. Again, start with the fresh gas.
Definetly a fuel issue in carb. You need to remove the carb and ensure that the pilot jet (in the float chamber at base of carb) is clear by carefully unscrewing it with a decent screwdriver.If it is clear then you need to be checking the float level in carb.
I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!
Hello. If the gas has been sitting all winter, remove it with a siphoning bulb and put in brand new gas, not even gas that you have been storing all winter. Also, change your air filter. Finally get a can of starter fluid and a helper. While one person squirts a bit of starter fluid into the air intake [near the air filter] the other person starts it and use more squirts of starter fluid to keep it running. Joe
