Can you help me figure out how to get my Stella scooter going again?

by Wayne Isaac
(Arvada, Colorado)

I have a 2007 Genuine Stella scooter, with a 166 rebuild with a 40? carb, site + exhaust. I was riding to work today, Stella went to an idle, I stopped, idled for a minute with no response from the throttle, then died. I restarted it and it only idled, then died.

It is full of good gas. What could the problem be? I need help. The shop, Sportique in Denver, only can say, bring it in. I don't want to bring it to the shop, when I should be able to fix it myself.

Please help.

Spark Plug

Anytime I have a problem with a two stroke the first thing I do is put in a new spark plug. After that it sounds like your main jet is clogged and the carburetor needs cleaning.

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.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. 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...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
