Vespa Bravo Died

Riding along fine and dandy. Died. Started back up but hecka slow. Felt like when I first gave it gas it bogged down and was going to die. Rode a distance. Then it died. Couldnt get it back up and started. Changed the plug. Nothing. Any ideas?

Any time my Ciao bogs and dies it needs a good carb clean . Take it apart and clean it. Then blast it out at the gas station with compressed air. bruce

Re: Vespa Bravo Died

Make sure the air filter box on back of the carb is properly seated.

Check for fuel flow from the petcock in the UP and DOWN positions.

Clean carb as Bruce suggested

Try running without the muffler to see if you may have a clogged muffler.

Check your tail/brake light bulb.

Maybe a wire is rubbing under the flywheel or a wire was too close to the engine and melted.
