Why won't my 09 Honda Ruckus scooter start?

by 671IslandBoy

I have an 09 Honda Ruckus scooter. I deployed 2 years in a row so needless to say it sat for a long time. I recently changed the oil, gas and battery but it wont start.

I checked the spark plug and it sparks. I disconnected the fuel line at the carburetor and the pump works. Help please!

If you didn't drain the tank and carb. it's probably gummed up jets. Pull off the resevoir on the carb and clean the jets. Also I would check the compression in case a valve is stuck.

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...
