Why is my Eton Beamer scooter bogging down?

by Danny

2006 50 cc Eton Scooter Beamer II bogs down when I accelerate at a stop. I removed/cleaned carburetor, cleaned re gaped spark plug changed fuel, cleaned air filter.

Scooter will start fine on full choke but will rev up and down. Scooter on stand now. When I turn on and accelerate 1/4 of the way it will bog down unless I release gas. Tried adjusting manual air screw as well as other one with screw driver.

Could it possibly be a vacuum leak? If so, does anyone have pictures how lines are routed from gas tank to what port and what hose goes where? Thanks

My 2003 49cc E Ton beamer scooter Runs fine until I drive it for 3 or 4 miles and then it will bog down if I go over 45. If I stop and let it Idle for a few seconds it will go back to normal.

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...
