Just bought a 2008 benxhou scooter. Guy said it was sitting for 2 years without being ran. The scooter Sometimes will start after a few cranks runs great top speed 33mph for about 20 to 30 seconds then dies.
Will not start again for a few minutes****
Cleaned carb twice with no improvement.
Amateur carb clean, jets, bowl...?
Fuel flows strong when i suck on the vacuum line.
The scooter will NOT idle. I have to hold quarter throttle. What else can i check for? Please help asap! Did i miss a important spot in the carb? Also, New battery, 500 miles on scooter
Check the valve lash, they might be closing up when they warm up causing lack of compression. Also if it has been sitting for a while get fresh gas in it as well, or at least fuel treatment. Don't forget to adjust A/F mixture and Idle screw to allow it to idle better. It could also be your enricher not working and staying open, so check that as well.

Valves set to .04mm......And IT RUNS! Thank you to this great forum....Came in with very little experience and went through all the diagnostics....Cant belive the valves can cause symptoms like stalling and such. I am now going to go ride my scooter in the rain all day and night:)
Put simply- unless someone has replaced the vacume controled fuel shut off, if you go tofull thottle you will not have any vacume to hold the throttle open and so you will run the carburator out in a a few seconds and she will slow down pretty fast. Try running at 1/2 throttle for a while. Cheers

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.
