Question about 2005 Kymco People S 200

Carburetor isues? 2007 kymco people 50 2 stroke

Just bought people 50 off craigslist for great price. The bike was banged up so I took the body apart and gave a fresh new paint job and new chrome. I put in a new spark plug and air filter.After all this when I start the bike it runs for a sec and dies. If I give it throttle it dies. The only way I can get the bike to stay running is to cover the air filter and manually choke. I have tried to play with the air and Idle screws but I dont know what Im doing so it is trial and error at best. At one point while adjusting the Idle srew gas started leaking out of the air filter cover where i was choking it. I want to learn to do this on my own but cannot find much info online. I was however able to download the service manual. it gives this 1º ± ohms as the setting for the air screw opening but I have no clue what this means. Help

    I have the same problem, coupled with a faint clock but its a 2005.  Sometimes I can ride it for nearly 2 miles, then it chokes and dies.

Why 2002 Chrysler voyagers have body paint oxidation & when did the paint oxidation start and how can I be reimbursed for the repairs?

this has been a problem since the 80`s and it was caused by the top sealing clear coat not being mixed properly or the wrong/inferior clear coat was being used and not enough applied when the car was being painted. manufactures felt any where they could save a penny was more in their pocket. it affected some cars and not others for some reason and no they do not feel responsible for the problem.

First thing to check is that you have cleaned fresh paint off any ground connections for the electrical system. All grounds must have a good clean metal to metal contact. It's usually either the battery earth, or the engine to frame.

My 2005 Hyundai Elantra looks disgusting. The clear paint is peeling off all over the back section of the car. This car is electric blue, and not yet 6 years old! What has caused this. Paint/panel guys...

Deterioration of the clearcoat can be caused from several things, not the least of which is the environment, such as acid rain or air polution. Usually it is caused from lack of maintenance, such as not using a protective wax or polish regularly. I have seen instances where too much polishing with a power buffer caused the clearcoat to wear away. Or it could just be a poor factory paint job. Lots of those around. Shop around for a good price on repaint. Where I am from, there is a paint and body business call MAACO that will repaint a car very cheaply. Their paint jobs don't last more than a couple of years, but they look really good when fresh. You may find someone who paints cars as a hobby, or second income. They usually do decent work for little profit. Check the want ads and local bulletin boards. You may be surprised at how affordable a new paint job can be.

How much would a new paint job cost and where do I get it done?

In New York we have franchise paint shops that will do a reasonable paint job starting at 400.00, you can spend more as you decide on the type of paint you want on the car, the paint shop will give you a complete estimate and break down on this. Our shops are called Mako Paint.

The Price depends on the Condition, Mileage as well. I could give you a slab for this.

Are you Purchasing it from a Dealer? If yes, is it Certified?

The slab $50000 - $125000

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

1994 acura integra--Paint job.

Surface rust can be worse than it appears so then in that case, the bad spots will have to be cut out and new metal welded in its place. (Look at the rust from underside of the panel--moisture gets there and rusts from the inside out) Paint chips can be sanded down. As far as a quote, here in southeast Missouri would be $1600-$1700 for a full body paint job.

No power when going into 2nd gear or higher

Forget the wiring. The key thing here is probably the painted gas tank. In all likelihood there was some trash that got into the tank related to the paint job. Do this > Carefully remove the water trap bowl from the petcock, (gas valve), and look inside the bowl. It may have some water in the bottom and some trash on top. Clean the bowl. Next, remove the petcock and clean it as well. Drain the carbs. Turn the gas on and wait a minute for the float bowls to fill.

Give it a try. It may be that the gas from the tank is restricted and can't refill the floats as fast as the engine needs. A second thought is the exhaust pipe. The bike will not run well if the exhaust is partly plugged up. Disconnect the exhaust and tick off the neighbors by going around the block without a muffler. The inside of the muffler may have collapsed when the welding was done.

Between the two solutions I think the exhaust is the more likely.
Please rate this solution as " FixYa " if you go riding tomorrow.
