I checked the service manual for your vehicle. I'm not sure if it's the correct year. Most motorcycles have a kickstand ignition cutout. If you put it in gear with your kickstand down then it kills the ignition so you can't ride the motorcycle with the kickstand down. The service manual does not show this type of a switch on your vehicle. I also checked ...

This sounds like an air leak to me. Do a leak test, by spraying carb cleaner or starting fluid on the intake, carb and around the head, while the bike is idling. If it starts revving when you spray fluid, it's leaking air. Replace the gasket/tighten up nearest where the rev-producing spray occurs.

Your carburettor probably looks something like this: Source This carburettor is what we call a float carburettor. Essentially, the bottom side of this carburettor works on the principle of a bowl, a float, and a needle. The bowl contains a certain amount of fuel to be drawn into the engine. Inside the bowl there is a float, which is attached to a needle....

The most likely explanations would be either 1) a loose connection, or 2) if the moped has a self-resetting circuit breaker (instead of a fuse) in the headlight circuit, then perhaps there is an overload. The first possibility would most likely be set off by vibrations, so you might think about when the light goes out and see if you notice a pattern – does ...

You stated you tested the float in water. The problem with your testing method is, water is heavier than gasoline. This means the float could be buoyant enough in water, but not in gasoline. I'd suggest your float is bad. In most cases, you have to replace the entire sending unit, which includes the float, not just the float itself.

Yes you either have a stretched or broken belt or your centripical clutch is bad and needs replaced. The auto clutch setup on fully automatic go carts, small dirt bikea/four-wheelers, and most mopeds use a centrificle clutch system and the small plastic or rubber prices wear down or out over time and makes it see like a manual shit stuck in neutral or in ...

Step 1: check the gauge works - usually grounding the wire to the tank unit cause a full-scale reading, if good proceed to step 2, if not check wire from gauge, gauge and supply. Step 2: connect tank sensor to wire from gauge and earth/ground the sensor - move the float and observe gauge, if not working then likely a faulty sensor. Step 3: fit sensor into ...

The first idea is to separate the rod pushed by the lever into two parts, so it has a sliding section in the middle, such that the initial movement moves a small piston into a cup - once it hits bottom then it will drive the rest of the rod as normal. This piston / cup does not need a seal but does need to stay straight... and a spring to expand it again... ...

Scenario 1 Your carburettor might have been flooded, the fuel pump(vending machine) has a certain pressure with which it pours in fuel to your tank, your moped being small I am guessing not more that 4 litres of fuel capacity will be a small tank and when you are pretty close to empty or empty the pressure of the fuel coming in can flood your carburettor ...
