Re: it just died!! PLEASE HELP

my friend had the same thing happen to him. his moped hasn't started since.

Re: it just died!! PLEASE HELP

my friends batavus did the same thing. it was a clogged cab inlet. to check, unscrew the nut where the fuel line goes into the carb. there is a little mesh screen in there to keep the shit out of the carb. clean this whole thing, and then see if it works. maybe clean your jet while your at it.

Re: it just died!! PLEASE HELP

My batavus did the same thing...it turned out the jet was clogged...i took it out sprayed some carb cleaner thru it and it ran fine

Re: it just died!! PLEASE HELP

When a ped that is running well "just dies" its either a fuel starvation issue or a sudden ignition problem. Have you checked to make sure you have a good spark? If so, then Toehead and Nick's recomendations should solve your problems.

Re: it just died!! PLEASE HELP

why didnt you pedal it home?

Re: it just died!! PLEASE HELP

The pedals hit his exhaust.

well i pedaled as much as i could but alot of it was uphill, anyways i fixed it by cleaning the jet/carb and then for shits ang giggles put in a new inline fuel filter

Re: ITS ALIVE

It's the carb 95% of the time dude.

it's so hard to look cool while you're pedalling yourself home, isn't it. i've done it many times myself. what's even worse is when i have to call my wife and have her come rescue me. my moped looks so pathetic being hauled back home in the trunk of a nissan sentra.

congrats on getting your beast up and running again. atleast for another couple days =)

Re: ITS ALIVE

im confident i fixed the problem with the fuel filter there was so much shit in the tank when i bought it and its still coming out, yea peddling wasnt fun and i was told i looked pretty goofy but i guess it was one of freds reactions. ped fit in back of a sentra huh?? didnt think it would, sentra is a nice ride though SE-R with the sr20 motor in it kicks some ass i know that
