Got my scooter running last week, super oddball, '99 Hyosung sense, 50cc two stroke oil injected beast. Thing fucking rips, with a bit of time I can see 45...up to 40 quick, and registers as a moped! Yay! The bad, after sitting only a few hrs it takes a lot of cranking to get fuel to the carb running the batt low to the point it is hard to start, may not as starter turns too slow. Now if you start it within an hr of shutting down it fires up immediately, so fast you can't let go of the starter button fast enough to avoid minor drag, so me thinks the diaphragm in the petcock has degraded? Or is this normal? Stupid ethanol. If I can get this licked it will never have ethanol fuel in it again, I have a line on a place in AZ that had the petcock, but obviously can't call until tomorrow. Wish they had stuck with gravity feed! :) Guess the trade off is it has a plastic tank, so will never rust! I had to pull the kick start out of it so I need to address this so I don't get stranded. Idea's? I figured out how to ride this without it attempting to kill me, it has foot pegs for a passenger, but this thing must have been made for Hobbits, as there is no way two people could ride on it, but if I use those instead of putting feet on floorboards it's actually quite stabil.
