Any idea why my Roketa 150cc scooter will not start?

by Anonymous

Scooter was running fine until my brother hit a pothole and then something started rattling around and now it will not turn over. I have checked everywhere "under the hood" to make sure nothing broke off or came undone.

I am at a loss as to what to do next and cannot find any sort of manual or engine guide online. Any help would be appreciated...

Will not turn over ?
by: RP

Do you mean you can turn the engine but it does not start or you can't get the engine to crank?

If it's the latter, check the variator to make sure something in that area did not come apart and bind up the belt etc.

haynes manual
by: bill b

Haynes has a manual for all Chinese scooters. It is not perfect but has a lot of info. I would check to see if spark plug came loose. Also, if plug came loose it can damage the CID unit. I bought a scooter that had the same condition as what you describe. I ended up putting a new CID and coil on it to fix it.

I found out that it is better to push the entire rubber spark plug grommet into the metal shroud to assure that the spark plug stays attached. Because of the way the system is designed it is hard to tell if you have a good spark at plug because you might damage the system trying. Parts Mania is a good place to get parts.

It sounds like you might have jarred a wire loose it the stator or something. Are you getting any spark from the sparkplug?

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...
