@happybuddha the tire sidewall of a snow tire may be marked M/S (mud/snow) or may show a snowflake.

comment Two hoses that run from the carburetor - Is the upper hose cut and zip tied? Is that's the one that brings fuel to the carburetor?
Do you smell gas after attempting to start the scooter for a while?

the upper hose that you found cut and zip tied is likely to be a vacuum line, rather than a fuel supply line.

comment Trip computer reported MPG with engine remap or chip
@JuannStrauss the research paper you cite seeks to find a vehicle-general method of estimating fuel consumption (when you don't know the fuel injector parameters), and in fact it states "The fuel consumption data is supported by automotive company in real amount of fuel injection. This data has been used as a reference value to obtain an estimation model." I.E. the injected fuel quantity is the standard by which they judged the accuracy of their estimate. Check out the relevant sections of the Bosch Automotive Handbook or Bosch Gasoline Engine Management--they're the guys who made the ECU

please mark the answer by @BrianKnoblauch as 'accepted', and perhaps add your additonal information as a comment. as it is, this is a "me too" answer.

a few comments: 1. this is close to a 'shop-for-me' question, which is discouraged per the FAQ. 2. you may be better served asking on the electronics SX site.

I feel this question is quite difficult to address in its current laundry-list form. It is exceedingly unlikely that all your symptoms have a common cause. Perhaps you could break this question into a few smaller questions (reduced power and rough idle; vibration at speed; clunk during low-speed turns; clunk when shifting from park; electrical issues)

re: letting the car idle to reach operating temperature before driving away, this is actually recommended AGAINST by my recent VW and AUDI owners manuals. They say 'start up and drive away'. A car will take a long time to reach operating temperature when idling with no load, all the while burning fuel and polluting the atmosphere (the warm-up period has highest fuel consumption and emissions). That said, I always drive gently for the first 10-15 minutes.
