Why don't I get gas when my 2007 Roketa 50cc scooter starts?

by Anonymous

When I start the scooter it fires up and when I engage the throttle it gets no gas. It just sputters and backfires. It will run for however long but gets no gas when throttle engages. Why?

no gas when trottle NEW
by: Axy550qtjim

i clean the carb replace the spark plug i clean the exhaust and still the same i check the wires and they were good, but when i put a test light on a black/yellow wire it was short light and then came regular light on the test lighter, it leads me to the CDI, TYPE 6 conector its a little rectangle box with 6 conectors 4-2

Capacitor discharge ignition (CDI module) or ignitor is used on very many gas scooters, ATVs, dirt bikes, and go karts with modern 4-stroke GY6/QMB139 or Honda-style engines.

This ignitor is a very common used scooter module in the motorsports industry. This style of connector CDI is used by Baja Motorsports, Roketa, Schwinn, Tank, TNG, Vento, X-Treme, and many more manufacturers and brands of scooters.

This CDI module is commonly used on today's popular medium to large engine sizes of 50cc, 90cc, 125cc, and 150cc and has a 6 pin rounded connector as pictured.

Note: CDI scooter module is equipped with a "rev limiter", which limits the revolutions (RPMs or speed) of the engine. so i open the box and it was clog and some pins were non welded and when i move the plug it throttle right, so im replacind the cdi

i have the same issue with my xy50qt scooter, i check for the throttle cable and is connected on both ends. i cleaned the carburator once and it kind of works good, but now is the same problem, so now i'm gonna replace the spark plug and check for holes in hoses, and also clean the gas valve of the gas tank because it got rusty but if you have any suggestions i'll take them

throttle cable
by: Anonymous

Did you check if the throttle cable is still connected to the carburetor?.. Just open the seat and lift that little cover inside and it shows the carburetor. The cable is on the left side..
It could also be the throttle itself

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...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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