Hello bike Lovers  !!!

If you lack technical ideas about your gas scooter and pocket bike then you are probably going to face many difficulties when you are on the road. Technical ideas are crucial and every scooter rider should have at least the basic understanding about gas scooters or pocket bikes working mechanism. In this article, we have listed some common problems that gas scooters or pocket bike riders often face and that can be frustrating if you lack the technical ideas and understanding.

Carburetor Mounting Screws: People often complain that their scooter idles fast and it doesn’t run right. Well, something that scooter riders often tend to do to solve this issue is by adjusting the carburetor mixture screw but doesn’t help much.

However, if you are facing such problems then it is better to work with carburetor mounting screws because often they get loose and the engine starts to suck the air beneath the carb. You can solve this problem by removing the air filter and inspecting the screws mounting the carb. On your wish, you can even get rid of the carb and clean the gaskets.

Facing a Hard Time to Start the Engine: It is a common problem that has its innumerable cause and it is really hard to tell what exactly it is that is giving you hard time to start your engine. However, we will focus on some common issues that often persist.

First, make sure you have gas in the tank and have pumped the carburetor primer bulb. Using choke can help you start the engine so always make few pulls until the engine gets sputters and if engine sputters you should be turning off the choke and never run your scooter while the choke is on.

You can suspect the grounding issues if your engine doesn’t sputter or fires at all. So, in this case, the problem may be due to damages in the kill switch wire insulation that might have been rubbed. In such condition is better to find a wire connection that is nearest to the motor and simply unplugs. If this is the cause then repeating your earlier attempts should now start the engine. However, do not forget to repair your kill switch.

Increasing Engine Performance: Every scooter or pocket bike rider wants to increase motor performance. Well, one easy way to do this is by letting your engine breathe easier. Replacing the old one with new air cleaner and exhaust system can help.

The exhaust system can be changed on various models as expansion pipe are available focusing on different models. For some scooters using High-Performance carburetor can do a great job.

Scooter Lacks Power: It is often seen that people complain their scooter doesn’t start but when it does it has no power at all. Well, this is the problem that can be solved by cleaning the carbon and oils that are clogged in the screen.

Scooters come with spark arrestors these are the screen within the muffler that resides near the exhaust hole that might be sometimes flat or conical in the shape. So, just take off the muffler cover and see the muffler’s exhaust hole and if it’s clogged with carbon and oil cleaning it should avoid the problem.
