Why can't I get my 2006 Diamo Classic 50cc scooter to start?

I have a 2006 Diamo Classic 50cc that won't start. I have gas to the carb and spark at the plug, but my scooter still won't start.

All of my lights work, as does my horn, but the engine just won't start. The scooter only has 2016 miles... Please Help?

My scooter won't start NEW
by: Danax rider

I also have a 2006 diamo 50cc scooter and after sitting for the winter it wont start it only has 1000 miles on it. I have cleaned the carb and gas tank, fuel lines. Also Replaced the plug.. It is getting fuel to the carb and cylinder. And it has a good blue spark as it should but it won't fire up... I'm completely out of ideas. Can anyone help me??? I would appreciate any thoughts or ideas. Thank you!

Adjust your valves.
by: Anonymous

With 2000 miles on your scooter it is time to adjust your valves. If you have fuel, compression, and spark the scooter should run. But if your valves need to be adjusted you are not getting proper compression.

Gas in the motor
by: Jim Zeiser

Take out your spark and spray in starter fluid, put your lug back in and try to start it. If it starts and dies you have a clogged carburetor and it needs cleaning. Otherwise, make sure your spark is a nice blue color, otherwise it's an electrical problem.

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

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