Can anyone tell me why I am having trouble keeping my Xingyue scooter running?

by Korby Krueger

My scooter will start but not run, apply gas cuts out. I have a Xingyue XY 150cc, It will start but not run when gas applied or will run for a few blocks then cuts out and problem starting it.

Spark pug gets a spark sometimes. Suggestions have been fuel filter replaced and still happens, other suggestions have been cdi unit but talked to parts store manager he said was not the cdi box if scooter started

Do you have any other suggestions on what to look at? I have about 300 miles on it.

It could so be a bad CDI or coil or coil wire or a bad connection somewhere in the scooter in the ignition circuit. Also a loose vacuum line or crud in the fuel tank or fuel filter. Start by seeing if the petcock always flows when you crank the motor, then see what color your spark is. Blue is the desired color.

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.

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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