Why is fuel pouring from my air filter on my 50cc Roketa scooter?

by Mike

When I turn off my 50cc Roketa scooter, fuel comes out of the carb and drips out of my air filter. I had no problems two days before and now it has happened twice in the last 2 days.

I take the air filter off and let it set over night... the next morning it started fine. Then I noticed after I shut it off, the gas started dripping out the filter about 10 minutes later. Now it's flooded again.

I'm not a mechanic.

I had the same problem with one of my VIP's 49cc I found it easier to just replace the carb ($40.00) and the fuel pump ($20.00) on line.
And don't be afraid to try. Learning is the fun part of scootering.

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...


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.
