Hello all! Thanks to everyone who posts to this forum, this is probably the best place to get good moped maintenance info that I've ever found.
I have a question about the Yamaha QT-50 oil injector. I have a QT-50 that leaks oil all over the place whenever the oil tank is filled. It's done this ever since I bought it (a few weeks ago). Having gotten the engine running pretty well (using premixed gas & oil in the tank), I'm now turning my attention to fixing this little problem so I can go back to straight gas.
For one thing, I'm not entirely sure I understand how the mechanism in the oil injector works. My best guess is that it controls the amount of oil based both on throttle position and on actual engine RPMs. Is that right? Until I understand how it works a little better, I'm not terribly inclined to start taking it apart.
Second, I have no idea how to tune the oil pump. (Sadly, I have no access to a service manual) There are two screws I can see on mine which look like they may be for adjusting the oil mix. I think they're adjustment screws because they're both currently "out" several turns. Does anyone know what the function of these screws is? Or, is it possible that one (or both) of them is just a screw holding the pump together which has come loose? I'm suspicious because neither of them seems to be pressing against any kind of internal or external spring, like the idle adjustment screws on the carb.
Lastly, though the space is kind of cramped, I think I can see a screw-hole with no screw in it, at the bottom-right of the injector assembly (looking at it from the rear of the bike). If I'm missing one of the screws for the housing, I'd be willing to bet that that's the cause of my oil leak.
So... anybody got any info about the oil pump on the QT-50 that they'd like to share? Anybody got any better theories about what may be causing mine to leak?
Thanks a lot, and keep up the good work!
