You should replace the fuel also as fuel deteriorates over time.Drain the tank and replace with new fuel.Also drain the carb.as it will still have old fuel in it.

2016 Kymco Super 8 50 2T carburetor tuning


Hi, Jason if you have changed your engine size, fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve, and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" you're not getting enough fuel.
1. Close to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. A wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, the engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

How do you clean the car orator on a Kymco scooter?


Hey Tammy,
I hope you mean carburetor -- Motorcycle carburetors have numerous tiny passages, screws that need to be removed to access some of these tiny passages, jets that need cleaning, etc.
This is NOT a job for a shade tree mechanic.. Any good motorcycle dealership SHOULD have a mechanic that can clean and set your carburetor..regardless of make!!

Sounds like it overheated & seized, when you let it cool down, it started again. Two things to check is the coolant level, if very low then it could be a head gasket or waterpump seal problem.

The other is for two stroke oil, check the oil lever & that the two stroke pump is working. Previous owner could have been also running it on a pre-mix of oil & fuel in the tank, ask them about it.

Filling the tank full is okay. The problem sounds like condensation in the gas tank has made it to the carburetor. There should be a screw or drain plug on the side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Drain the carb and also drain some gas from the fuel line to remove any water and trash in the system. Chances are this will get you back on the road.
