Are there any other causes that will keep me from starting my Eaglecraft Verano 150cc scooter?

I had trouble starting my Eaglecraft Verano 150cc scooter one day, then the next day it started just fine... Then found a loose wire that drained the battery... I know I need to get a battery to do an electric start.

I'm just short on funds right now. I tried to do the kick starter and also was doing just fine until one day it would not kick over.

What are some things I can check for?... I have put in a new spark plug and fuel filter. Are there any other causes that will keep me from starting the scooter?

My scooter stand got bent so I removed it. Can you list any things I should look for please...

Once you fixed the wire your battery should have recharged itself and you should have been able to use the electric starter again. I would see if you can get it started again and see if there is 13.5 volts between the plus and negative terminals of the battery. If not you may have a charging problem and need to see your local Eaglecraft dealer about fixing it.

Starting the scooter

Did you check to see if you are getting a spark out of the spark plug? You might have a bad coil or a bad stator or just a bad connection.

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.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
