Hi I'm new to the forum and would appreciate any help I can get with a recently acquired Scooter. The scooter I am inquiring about is a Speed 50qt-13 I'm assuming that regardless of the distributor all the Chinese made 50qt-13 are all the same. The problem I'm having with it is the engine cranks but wont start, it's getting fuel, has spark , good compression, and the battery is fully charged. Is there some funky thing with the light switch that has to do with the ignition or is there a device similar to a neutral safety switch that could be screwing with it? Please someone help!!!
Does it have a KILL SWITCH on the the Right Hand Grip make sure it is in the RUN position otherwise it will crank all day long but will not start. And since the starter is turning that means that you are squeezing the brake. Some also have a kill switch on the Side Stand make sure that is up and you are trying to start it on the center stand.

Longbo 150cc Prodigy and the Voyager. Buy them as cheap as you can, find the cheapest parts . Ride em hard . They will break anyway .
Just a couple of questions: How did you verify you are getting spark? How did you verify you are getting Fuel?
If you truely are getting Spark and has good compression then it obvious FUEL is not going down the intake. So take the VACUMM Hose off the INTAKE MANIFOLD and squirt some GAS down it and put the Vacumm hose back on. If it fires and runs then dies then you just verified no fuel is getting down the intake.
Fuel may be getting to the Carb but not out of it. Time to clean out the Carb the Jets and PASSAGES. Lefty

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
