motor problems... no razzing/ harassment please

3 posts in this topic

Ok Ok... This is about a moped/ scooter. not sure where to post this. this seemed better thatn the automotive. any how this thing is not easy to get to the most of the engine. well my father and I both both new 50cc bikes from shenke motorcyle co. of shanghai. My scooter runs fine, 420 miles since July 4th. Dads has about 300 something. the problem w/ his is that it became very hard to start and then after it starts and let it idle for a while to warm up; then get on to give it a little fuel it will kill. and then very very hard to start.I am not much of a mechanic but seems alot like a carb issue. I played w/ the idle screw a little but seemed to do nothing. not sure what to try next. Any one have any good ideas to try? Hope there is something stupidly easy to solve this problem.

Bring it down to your local Shenke dealer and let them do some warranty repairs on it. If that doesn't work try taking the carb apart and cleaning it. It's probably gummed up inside and one of the jets maybe partially plugged.

On a 50cc motor the jets are very very small, try to put seafoam in the gas, run it , let it sit , then run it again this stuff is wonders.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
