Vento gt5 scooter not getting any power

I bought a 2006 vento gt5 zip that had been garage kept for bout 6 months, it ran fine when i drove it round the block, and ran fine on the way home (bout 10 min drive) with the exception of cutting out at a stoplight. that was the last time it ran or started at all. now its not getting any power from the battery at all, and i know the battery is good. it doesn't even have enough juice to honk the horn. any help, tips, or info on getting my scoot running would be awesome cause i have no clue what i'm doing and no resources other than the internet. also anything else i may need to do to it since it sat in a garage and now on my porch for so long.

Where is vento gt5 choke located

If the fuel tank is mounted below the carb, a fuel pump will be utilized since gravity won't work. You may be able to take a syringe & spray a little gas in the carb & see if it will run long enough to get it all primed up. Be careful with the flammables.

What kind of oil does a 2005 Vento Zip r3i Turbocam

Vento was headquartered in San Diego, California, and began producing motorcycles and scooters in 1996, with design and development teams based in China, Italy, and Australia, as well as California. While many parts were made in China, the final assembly took place in Laredo, Texas. The company initially spent a lot of money building a presence in the United States with widespread international distribution, proudly displaying their ""American-built"" status. However, they lost their footing and went out of business in 2008. The Vento Zip - officially called the Vento Zip r3i Turbocam - has a sub-model in the GT5, and both models are 50cc entry-level step-through scooters.
Powered by an air-cooled, two-stroke, single-cylinder engine, the Zip is a carbureted, SOHC valve powerplant, running on premium fuel. No one who rides a 50cc scooter should expect great acceleration, and this little scooter is no exception, with 4.9-horsepower at 6.8 lb-ft of torque, about average for its class. The belt-driven continuously variable transmission puts the Zip squarely in the start-and-go category; a young rider does not need to learn how to operate a clutch or shift.
Anti-lock brakes are also standard on the Zip, with a disc brake in front and a rear drum. A telescoping fork provides the front suspension, and the rear suspension is a single-sided steel swing arm. They don't come with adjustable shocks, but given the low speeds they are designed for, a rider shouldn't need them.
The digital instrumentation is more complete than a lot of entry-level scooters'. Remote, keyless ignition is standard, along with several other standard features, including an alarm system, a clock, a fuel gauge, a speedometer, and an odometer. The dash features a fold-out, hard plastic, locking pouch in the front. The under-seat storage is lockable and shares its already tiny compartment with the battery, so it doesn't even provide enough room to store textbooks. There are also small, locking right and left compartments. Neither is large enough to hold a helmet, so make sure you purchase a way to lock it onto the stock rear rack. Plan to either divide your goodies up between the storage, or buy a good backpack.
