Can you help with my 50cc TGB 302 sport cutting out problem?

I have just had my scooter back on the road after 4 years of standing. About 2 months back, I had a new piston fitted as the other had cracked. The scooter has run fine for 6 weeks, but then started to pull back when on full throttle.

This happened over a 2 day period, then on the third day the scooter just cut out on full throttle, although it will start fine and idles normally.

The scooter has only 2165 miles on the clock. Any idea what's going on?

Shutting off problem
by: George Jennings

It sounds like a clogged fuel filter. I would replace it with a new one and see what happens. I would clean the fuel system. Fuel tank, fuel lines, carb., replace the vacuum lines, NOTE: when cleaning the carb., make sure to clean the idle jet, main jet and the needle. Clean all the holes in the carb. body. Use a high quality carb cleaner. This should clear up the problem. I hope this is helpful.

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.
