Why is my 50cc Tao Tao scooter carburetor leaking?

by Ralph
(Las Vegas. NV. USA)

I looked through all your of the questions and noticed many people have asked for your help with their Tao Tao scooter and I appreciate that and like to ask my own. I noticed there was gas on my carburetor, the hoses, and underneath it.

I checked all the lines and they look snug to me. I would appreciate any help you could give me on this. Thanks

You really need to change out those original fuel lines and rubber hoses and filter with good quality stuff, they use the cheapest rubber on that stuff that deteoriates from the inside out rapidly.
One fellow reportedly had his fuel line leaking a month after he bought the scooter, the rubber had just deteriorated.
Get some new lines at NAPA and use those screw clamps, the thin little paperclip looking things they use on these lines are pathetic.

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.
