Pls help only just got the bike
There are several potential reasons why your Piaggio Zip 70s scooter may not be starting. Some common causes include:
Dead battery: Make sure that the battery is charged and in good working condition.
Faulty spark plug: Check the spark plug and replace it if it is dirty or worn.
Clogged fuel filter: A clogged fuel filter can prevent fuel from reaching the engine.
Air filter: The air filter can be clogged, restricting airflow to the engine.
Poor compression: If the compression in the engine is low, it may not start.
It is difficult to determine the exact cause without more information or a proper diagnosis. The best course of action would be to refer to the manufacturer's manual or seek help from a qualified mechanic who can inspect and diagnose the problem.
Testimonial: "Thank you mate, I changed my fuel filter and my fuel piper and cleaned my carb then my red wire on my cdi was snapped so I put a new cable connection and then it started up this morning and then left it running for 5 and it cut out so what could it be?"

It looks to me like a vacuum leak. See the switch at the brake pedal. look underhood around vacuum leak for cruise control. look up for bad connector at cruise module underhood it's a visual check first

Power switch? Do you mean push to start switch? To see if you have a bad push to start 1st unplug. Open back top panel. Only do this test if you hae two wires going to the push to start switch. Wear gloves so you dont kill yourself. seriously. If you do have two wire then disconnect from push to start. Make sure they are not touching anything!!! Plug machine in. Tunr timer to 60 minutes. Touch wire together then pull apart. If machine kick on replace push to start. If not put everything back the way it was. Jump out door switch. If door switch is jump and still dont work then check motor test. Check harness on motor. If has a capacitor need to check with a cap. tester. You need a service manual to test wheather you have a bad motor. The manual will show you how to properly test a motor (each lead has ohms valve and you have to know what they are to test)
