Question about Quad Cycling

1 Answer

Runs but not idling

My MCI Alien 2010 model scooter has 7000ks on the clock. It starts and runs, but just dies if i stop at traffic lights etc. If i give it gas it will not die, I think i need to adjust the idle screw, but cannot locate a manual for this scooter, does anyone have a picture or manual to help me locate this screw? Otherwise it will be a trip to the bike shop.

The idle screw is normally found on the carburetor and is a screw with a spring, close to where the throttle cable enters the carb.

SOURCE: it starts fine an idles pretty good and smooth but

It sounds like a carburetor problem.You need to make sure the diaframs in the carburetor are good.The last thing you need to do is set the high and low speed needles.If its the same as mine,it will be on top of the carburetor.
Drop me a message if you need more help.

SOURCE: i have an mci alien 50cc scooter the oil light

Three things will cause this:

1: The sensor is cactus

2: The sensor is blocked (with gunk) and can not function.

3: There is no oil pressure to make it function.

2 is easy, you just take it out and clean it, if the problem is rectified then all is well. If not, you replace it, if the problem is rectified then all is well. If not you take it to a reputable bike mechanic, or get a manual and get it fixed. But I did not think that small bikes used oil pumps, I was of the opinion they used the oil spash technique. Could be wrong??????

Why is my car messing up


Obviously its problem with your fuel to air mixture. It is building up unburnt fuel due to not enough oxygen. This lack of enough oxygen will cause the stalls and the build up of gas will cause the backfires. Heat affects the mixture ratio. A number of detector are involved in the exhaust system and any one of them could be failing. Throttle Position Sensors, MAP sensor, Oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, etc. You should be getting the check engine light coming on also. Any auto parts place can read you the code numbers for free. They will provide more specific information about failing parts.

50cc scooter lack of power from 0 to 10mph


Fuel mixture is too rich. The easiest way I adjust those is to have a friend stand in front of the scooter, holding the wheel and handlebars still while I lightly hit the throttle and at the same time, adjusting the fuel mixture screw on the carburetor slightly. applying the throttle harder while adjusting, you should feel the scooter gain or lose power.

2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.


How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry
