Why is my husband's 150 cc Eagle scooter leaking gas?

by Dorothy Griggs
(Mishawaka, Indiana)

My husband bought a 2008 Eagle 150cc scooter. It ran great for a little bit. He noticed it leaking gas so I went to see what he was talking about. On the left hand side of the scooter by the rear tire there is a tube that stops at the body plate and it is hooked into a chrome piece.

When he tries to kickstart it, gas squirts out of the chrome piece. The tube coming out of it runs up under the seat to the motor. I did some looking online and it says something about it could be the fuel line screw?

But I called a local scooter shop and they have no idea what I am talking about. Hope you can help...

I had this problem too and it was a drain plug missing. I used a 6mm a inch long with some teflon tape to seal the drain.

I am having the same problem with my scooter! I went online to try and find the part and could not figure out what I needed. I will now go to hardware store to try and solve the problem! Thanks

That is called a carb drain plug, there is a long screw that goes into it. I would go to the hardwhere store and get a medium thread screw about 1.5 long and screw it in the hole. Make sure that you get a 8mm.

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...
