Re: Dont know where carburettor is on 50cc scooter

You can find replacement valves on eBay. What is leaking, oil or gas?

Re: 1983 Honda aero 50 piston/cylinder availability

I believe the Peugeot SV50 or SR50 uses the Honda engine, but of newer manufacture. The SV125 and SR125 engines are direct replacements for the Aero/Lead NH125. That's how I got my Lead 125 riding again. Direct swap.

Re: Dont know where carburettor is on 50cc scooter

Never store the bike with just a little gas. Fill up the tank and put a stabilizer into it if it will be sitting for a while. You may also have gunk from that stored fuel in the valve.

Re: Dont know where carburettor is on 50cc scooter

Ok, stupid question, but it has to be asked. Did you put gas in the tank before you tried to run it? Is it empty?

You may have taken out the vacuum line off, which is supposed to be dry. You'll need to check the other line to the carb.

Re: Dont know where carburettor is on 50cc scooter

The fuel valve under the tank has two tubes. One goes to the carb, the other comes from the engine to supply vacuum to let the fuel pass through the valve. Disconnect the line to the carb and crank the engine. Fuel should come out. If it doesn't, the valve likely is shot and needs to be replaced, an...

Re: Dont know where carburettor is on 50cc scooter

You're looking at it. Third and fourth images. Follow the fuel line from the tank, through the filter and down to the carb.

Re: Need MT 2.50×10 R-31 Rim for Yamaha 125cc

There are quite a few Yamahas out there with 125cc engines. That's like saying you want a rim for a Ford V8. You need to be more specific as to the model.

Seized spark plugs

I've seen some comments about how some people have to deal with seized spark plugs on their vehicles. I'm not surprised -- if the engine block is aluminium and your spark plugs are made of steel or some other metal, you're going to get dissimilar metal corrosion and seizing. Having worked on aircraf...

Re: Ch150 1987 scooter - Changed carb, now white smoke!

Even they couldn't figure it out. I can't see why that would be there except to prevent carb icing, but that is incredibly rare. The manual is your friend. Talk to Manuel. :)
