I had one of these mopeds up until last week. I was getting very fine dirt from the tank in the carb that kept it from running.

There is a small round cover & screen that is removable with a regular screwdriver on the left side of the carb. You should carefully remove the carb first. I was getting efficient at removing it without taking the throttle cable off, and cleaning it out at roadside. I would remove the fuel bowl and clean it also. It's easier w/ the top engine/frame cover off.

My Scorpion always started easily, but I didn't think it was a particularly strong runner.
