Eton Beamer II won't go over 30mph?

by Austin
(Brandon FL)

I have a 2007 Eton Beamer II scooter that I bought a little over a year ago. I had it maintenanced about six months ago and they cleaned the carburetor. Recently I can not get it to go above 30mph and it takes 25 seconds to reach that speed.

I used to be able to go about 45mph no problem. The scooter is derestricted already so that is not the problem. I checked the oil and it seems clean and at the appropriate level. I changed the spark plug a few weeks ago.

I need information on why my scooter may be acting up and steps I can take to get it running over 40mph again. Any help is appreciated.

i would check other parts first if it was your cdi your scooter probably would not start check and make sure there are no vacuum leaks and check your intake for leaks and reed valves for cracks also check transmission make sure belt isn't slipping and clutch and variator are working as they should and spark plug too, start with the simplest things and go from there another good source is online scooter forums is a good one.

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.
